Another Week Of Non Winter Winter Begins As Coastal Storm Remains Offshore
After a day or two of temperatures close to average or even a little below average it is back to above average temperatures for the week ahead. We have a coastal storm that stands out on the satellite loop with a very well defined center. To the north we see moisture sweeping into to Nova Scotia west into Northern and Eastern New England. There we see Winter Weatner Advisories and Winter Storm Warnings from Eastern Massachusetts north to New Hampshire and Maine as moisture backs in westward. Otherwise for Eastern Pennsylania to Southern New England it is a quiet day. There were some snow showers overnight into this morning on the radar mostly east of NYC but other than that it should be no worse than a partly sunny day ahead. Highs will be in the 40s.
To the west we are beginning to see clouds ahead of the next storm system and cold front. This low is heading from the Plains to the Great Lakes however the storm to the east will take another couple of days to get out of the way and that leaves little room for anything else. The Great Lakes system will weaken as it moves east and we will see clouds arriving tonight.
Temperatures overnight will be in the 20s away from warmer urban locations where lows will be in the lower 30s. Tuesday we will see clouds and a few showers but the models show this system weakening as it moves eastward so I don’t expect much in the way of rain and it is possible that some areas don’t see much rain at all. Highs Tuesday will reach the mid to upper 40s.
The pattern is fast and we have energy from the Western US getting ejected eastward on a regular basis so the next storm system will be heading for the Lower Great Lakes and Northeast for Thursday. Meanwhile Wednesday should be a nice day that is no worse than partly sunny. There is no cold air around so highs will reach the low to middle 50s.
The next storm system tracks from the Lower Lakes to off the New England coast so it will be rain from Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England. It will rain all the way up to north of I-90 in NY State and the only areas of the Northeast that see any snow from this system will be Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. This system will be stronger than Tuesday’s system so we could see a more significant amount of rain from this. Highs Thursday will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s. We should see improving weather conditions Friday with some sunshine returning and highs in the 40s.
