Another Day Fighting Clouds A Grazing of Precipitation Saturday Warmer Weather Next Week
If we are going to be enjoying rain and snow free conditions at least we should be able to do it with some sunshine. Unfortunately that has been limited to almost non existent the last few days and once again today many areas are starting off with clouds. There is dry air over New England that could make a move southward today and hopefully it does so we can get into a bit of sunshine. Temperatures will top in the upper 30s and lower 40s as the cold air from the north is no worse than seasonal. Radars are quiet and nothing is forecast rain or snow wise through Friday.
Skies should hopefully clear out tonight with lows in the 20s to near 30. Thursday should see more sunshine and fewer clouds. Friday look for early sunshine followed by arriving clouds with highs both days in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
We are still dealing with the back and forth regarding low pressure coming out of the Gulf States Friday and riding up the East Coast just offshore. A grazing of rain is what is being produced by overnight weather models though the NAM model makes the case for a colder atmosphere and perhaps some wet snow. This would be for late Friday night into Saturday afternoon if it happens as weather systems are moving along in this chaotic fast flow. We will take a close look later today after the new model cycles are done and hopefully we can lock down whatever it is that we are going to get Saturday and move on. Weather conditions improve Sunday and next week brings some warmer temperatures to the first half.
