• Happy Friday Seawolves! This chilly week will be followed by a clear and slightly warmer weekend. Temperatures for tomorrow and Sunday should get up to the mid 70s during the day and dip down into the 50s at night. Enjoy your weekend and, if you can, look up at the sky this weekend for a chance to see a shooting star during the Orionid Meteor Shower! -K
  • Happy Monday, Seawolves! A cold front moved through the island early this morning, bringing a chance of showers until around noon. Crisp autumn air and a Northwest wind will make its way to us by the late afternoon, and today's high will just barely break 60℉. This evening will be clear but chillier than we’re used to with lows dipping into the lower 40s. Another crisp autumn day is expected for Tuesday, with sunny skies and a high in the upper 50s, making it the perfect time to start breaking out the fall sweaters!
  • There are heavier rain showers coming our way for the next few hours. Keep an umbrella or rain coat nearby!
  • Expect a gloomy start to this Monday, with intermittent showers all day. A breezy afternoon with gusts around 30 mph will make the high today feel much cooler than the projected 74℉. Wind and possible rain continue into Monday night, but temperatures will barely dip below 70℉. Tuesday morning we’ll see mostly cloudy skies give way to sun and high near 80℉ by the afternoon. Clear skies and a low in the upper-50s are expected for Tuesday night. Stay dry, Seawolves!
  • A beautiful Friday will bring us into a warm weekend. Temperatures will be similar to yesterday's and today's, getting into the upper 70s with nights only dipping into the mid 60s. We should have partly to mostly cloudy skies until Sunday, when rain is possible throughout the day, into early next week. Let's enjoy the sunny weather while we can and have a great weekend! -K
  • Hope everyone's midterms are going well! After a chilly and crisp last couple days, we'll be having a slightly warmer end of the week. Today, afternoon temperatures should get into the mid 70s while tonight's won't dip down far past 60. Tomorrow will be warmer with a high around 78 and some more clouds in the sky than we're seeing today. Friday's forecast is still uncertain as a cold front makes its way in tonight. As of right now, we're looking at temperatures around the low 70s with a possibility for light rain in the afternoon. Enjoy the rest of your week! -K
  • Happy October! This beautiful fall weather will continue throughout the day, with sunny skies and a high near 70. Expect a clear, cool night with temperatures dipping into the upper 40s. Tuesday will be another sunny day with a high around 69—a perfect day to study outside as midterm season heats up. Good luck on exams, Seawolves! -S
  • Good morning! A Flash Flood Warning has been issued for Suffolk County, including Stony Brook, until 1:15 PM. We could potentially see rainfall totals of 3-4 inches. If you have to drive today, remember that if you encounter flooded roads "Turn around, don't drown!" as the National Weather Service says. Stay safe and dry Seawolves! -M
  • Woah, notice how much cooler it was today than the rest of this week was? Yeah, we did too. Last night, a trough in the jet stream began to settle in our area, which brought sunny and much more seasonable conditions today. For your weekend, anticipate a few passing showers on Saturday with high temperatures approaching the mid-60s. Then, expect clearer skies onward with temperatures on Saturday night going down to near 50 degrees, and a more pleasantly sunny Sunday with temperatures rising into upper 60s. Enjoy the more fall-like temperatures this weekend! -B
  • Good morning Seawolves! A dreary, foggy morning should clear up a little as we go into the afternoon. With a high of 78 for today, we're slowly coming down from the 80s we saw this week into cooler temperatures. For tonight, we'll have mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance for rain. Tomorrow will also reach the mid70s in the afternoon with, thankfully, less humidity and clearer skies. Friday, this trend will continue as temperatures continue to drop to more seasonable temperatures in the upper 60s, or lower 70s. Have a great rest of your week! -K
  • Happy Monday, Seawolves! We can expect more of this summer-like weather as we begin our week, with sunny skies today and a high near 81. Tonight will dip into the mid-60s. Clouds and patchy drizzle early Tuesday morning will give way to a mostly sunny Tuesday afternoon with a high near 80. Enjoy the warm weather! -S
  • Happy Fall Seawolves! It's a beautiful day today with temperatures in the high 70s and a strong breeze. As the weekend progresses, we're looking at sunnier skies and warmer temperatures. Saturday should be a clear day for Stony Brook's first annual Communiversity Day, with a high around 85 and light winds around 15 mph. Nice weather will continue for Saturday night's game and into Sunday also getting up to the mid 80s. Check back tomorrow before the 6 pm game for your Game Day Forecast!
  • Howdy, Seawolves! As Tropical Storm Jose moves southeast off the shore of Long Island today, we can expect a windy afternoon with gusts of up to 30 mph, a high in the upper 70s, and a chance of showers. High pressure will build over the Island on Thursday, giving us more pleasant weather with mostly cloudy skies and a high around 80. Tune in later this week for your weekend weather forecast!
  • Important weather update: Long Island is currently under a Tropical Storm Watch as Hurricane Jose makes its way up the Atlantic. This means that sustained winds greater than 40 mph are possible within the next 48 hours. Hurricane Jose is currently still a category 1 hurricane, roughly 300 miles off the coast of North Carolina. While making its way up the coast, it is expected to weaken back to tropical storm force winds. Jose is not likely to make landfall on Long Island; however, due to the storm's projected proximity to the island, we can expect strong winds and heavy rainfall as the storm passes alongside us. Currently, the worst of the storm for Long Island is predicted to be Tuesday night into Wednesday, which could bring 2-3 inches of rain and localized flooding. Although extensive damage is not expected, be sure to stay updated on any changes in the storm. Stay safe Seawolves!
  • Get your game faces on, Seawolves! Football season is starting and so are Game Day Forecasts! Tomorrow is looking to be a beautiful day for our first game with comfortable temperatures in the mid 70s and mostly sunny skies. The game tomorrow against the Sacred Heart Pioneers will start at 6pm so make sure you're there to cheer on Stony Brook!!
  • Thanks to everyone who stopped by our table at the involvement fair! We're so excited for the new year and all it has to offer! Thankfully, we had beautiful, sunny skies today for the fair! Unfortunately, clouds will be rolling in from the southwest later this afternoon and bringing with them a chance of showers for tonight, Thursday, and even into Friday morning. Scattered thunderstorms are also possible for tomorrow so be sure to be on the lookout for storm clouds and sounds of thunder! Make sure to check back on Friday for the first game day forecast of the season for the game on Saturday, 9/16 at 6pm!
  • Rain is on the way Seawolves!! We're looking at a downpour about to come down! If you're outside going from class to class, make sure you have a jacket or umbrella or else make sure you're inside!! Stay safe and stay dry!
  • Good evening Seawolves, Being a little over a week since what some are calling the "worst disaster in U.S history" and approaching the peak of Hurricane season a lot of people are a bit on edge about Hurricane Irma. Here at SBU Weather we figured this was a good time to put a lot of these fears to rest. There isn't a single professional weather forecaster that can prove this storm will have an impact on the United States at this point in time. However, that won't stop some, what we like to call, "Facebook meteorologists" from sharing apocalyptic model runs from over 10 days out. They do this to gain attention and likes for their page and get the internet all riled up. If you want to know what this storm is going to do next, there is one and only one source to go to, NOAA NWS National Hurricane Center. They will provide an updated forecast every 6 hours. Their website is filled with products and maps with great descriptions explaining exactly what they show. It is dangerous and unprofessional to say that Irma poses any threat to the United States right now. It's good to be aware of what is happening out in the Atlantic but no need to worry at this point. If you have any questions about the storm please ask we'd love to help answer! -Andrew
  • Hey Seawolves! Hope you're all enjoying your summer! Just a quick update to help you plan your weekend: A system possibly bringing heavy rain to us tonight and tomorrow is moving further south than originally anticipated! Even so, be on the look out for light rain, starting late tonight/early tomorrow morning that will pick up and last for most of the day. Expect Saturday night to clear up some, but still be cloudy with chance of scattered showers. Fortunately, Sunday has a much better outlook with clearer skies and temperatures in the 70s! Could be a great beach day before back to school (just make sure to apply and reapply plenty of sunscreen!) Enjoy the rest of your summer!
  • A strong line of storms is making it's way through Nassau county and heading to our area in the next 45 minutes to an hour. A second line of storms behind it which will be in our area a little later on is currently still west of NYC. Some of these cells contain very heavy rain and strong winds which can easily result in dangerous travel conditions. Expect evening rush hour delays and be careful on the road!
  • There is the potential for some severe weather today across Long Island. Thunderstorms are expected throughout the afternoon and evening and have the potential to bring strong winds, heavy rainfall, and hail. Most of the severe storms will be to our west, but there is the chance that we'll see some here. Keep an eye on the sky and get inside if you hear thunder!
  • 90+ degrees today here on campus! Make sure you stay hydrated and remain aware of the signs of heat exhaustion if working outside over extended periods of time. Tomorrow we will see much of the same in regards to temperatures high around 90 degrees, but we have a chance for thunderstorms later in the day some of which can be severe. The rest of the week will be a bit more bearable with highs back down into the 70s with clear skies. Have a great week and enjoy the summer weather!
  • Hey Seawolves! Did you see the double rainbow outside during that quick shower? The rain should be gone for the rest of the night, but we could see some drizzle here and there. Stay strong for your last round of finals! -N
  • Hope your finals are going well Seawolves! Tomorrow would be a good day to stay in and study-we're expecting 1 to 2 inches of rain for tomorrow and tomorrow night with wind gusts of around 30mph. Mother's Day will be a bit better, but we're still looking at some showers throughout the day. By Monday morning it should clear up and start to warm up as well! Hang in there, we're in the home stretch! -K
  • Heavier showers and possibly some embedded thundershowers are anticipated in the next 45 minutes or so. Please be prepared and share this post among fellow students! -C
