A Mostly Quiet Though Colder Week Ahead With No Major Storms On The Horizon
We have a rather mild Sunday in the cards today as a weakening cold front approaches from the west. Clouds are rolling in slowly but surely and we do have some rain on the regional radar showing up in Western Pennsylvania. This front is weakening as it moves eastward so we expect the clouds to survive but the rain area will likely fall apart at some point. We call at partly sunny to mostly cloudy across Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England and while we will throw in the chance for a scattered shower or two late today and tonight it is quite possible that many areas won’t see much if any rain at all. Most highs today will be in the warm low to mid 50s.
The rain from the front falls apart but the front itself will continue to push its way slowly eastward and it will likely take all day Monday to move through. Clouds will be around overnight with most lows in the mid to upper 30s. Monday look for variable clouds. We are going to leave in the chance there could be a shower late in the day. Highs will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
Monday night the front will pass and there could be another rain shower with that passage or perhaps a snow shower. Otherwise we are looking at temperatures actually turning colder with lows in the 20s inland and lower 30s along the coast and warmer urban settings. Tuesday will be the first day in quite awhile where temperatures will actually be near normal or in some cases even a little below average.
Tuesday also sees a wave of low pressure developing on the old cold front that passes through Monday but the bulk of any precipitation with that passes by to the south. Sky conditins Tuesday will likel be partly sunny to the north and more in the way of cloud cover to the south. Highs temperatures will be in the mid 30s to the north and upper 30s to near 40 to the south.
The story all week will be the flow from Canada bringing down colder but dry air masses and a southern storm track that has no real chance to lift northward up the coast. This will leave much of the Northeast and Northern Mid Atlantic states dry with sunshine Wednesday and highs in the 30s. Thursday we will likely see sun and high clouds with a low moving off the Carolinas. Highs again will be in the 30s. Friday a cold high builds into the Eastern US and we should finsh the week with sunshine and highs just in the upper 20s to lower 30s making it the coldest day of the week and the coldest day of the year so far, which really speaks volumes for how non winter the weather has been since the arctic air left us after Christmas.
