A Rainfree Weekend for a Change Across Much of the Norhteast & Mid Atlantic

It was bound to happen eventually. After 8 weekends in a row with rain we have a weekend with no rain! We have some sunshine across Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England but we also have some clouds streaming across the Ohio Valley and into the Northeast US and that is creating partly sunny conditions for this afternoon. The radars are showing some precipitation aloft which is typical in these situations when warm is returning over a cold air mass but none of it seems to be reaching the ground. Temperatures have been rounding nicely from the cold of the last few days. Highs this afternoon will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

We have a nice quiet night ahead too with nothing more than a few passing clouds. Lows by morning will be in the upper 30s in colder spots inland and low to mid 40s just above everywhere else. Sunday is looking like another nice day with high pressure offshore and a bit of a south wind. Other than some passing clouds we should have sunshine taking highs to the low and middle 60s.

The week ahead doesn’t look like anything worth worrying about. Weather systems moving across Southern Canada and the US are on the weak side and we have a rather gentle upper flow from west to east across the US and Southern Canada so we don’t see any major storms. We do have some weak weather fronts that will be moving along in the flow that will create some changes from time to time.

High pressure rebuild back into Eastern Canada and the Eastern US Monday which turns the winds more to the north and that puts a halt in any serious warming. Instead we will have a nice day Monday with some sunshine and highs reaching the low and middle 60s again.

Tuesday we will see the first of two weak cold fronts moving through this week. Much of the rain with this will pass well to our north so we will just go with the idea that skies Tuesday will be partly sunny. It will be on the warm side ahead of the front thanks to southwest winds. I will throw in the chance for a passing shower just in case but for the most part it is a non event. Highs Tuesday will be in the mid to upper 60s before the front passes offshore.

Wedesday brings another colder air mass into the Northeast and Mid Atlantic so it will be a colder day with sunshine. Highs will reach the low and middle 50s so we will be a solid 15 degrees colder than Tuesday and back to below average temperatures for this time of year.

Thursday brings the second cold front of the week and this is going to be preceeded by a warm front that will Wednesday night and we could see some rain with that Wednesday night into Thursday morning. The warm front goes by and then with the cold front and a southwest wind we should some drying until the cold front passes Thusday night into Friday morning with some more showers. Highs Thursday will be back in the 60s Once the front passes we will will see dry colder air come in for later Friday and for the start of next weekend. Enjoy the nice weather we have this weekend because there is no guarantee this is going to evolve into some long streak of nice weekends!
