Clouds Rolling In Watch For Some Showers Into Wednesday Morning
As often happens with major storms, after they go by the atmosphere calms down for awhile as the atmosphere has released all of its energy and begins the process of slowly reloading. You seldom see back to back major storms. We do however remain in a rather busy pattern with weather systems impacting our weather every 36 hours or so and the next one is already on the scene with clouds that have moved in after some morning sunshine.
The regional and local radars are picking up on some light rain that has developed but much of it is not even reaching the ground this afternoon. A few places are seeing some raindrops so we will allow for that possibility this afternoon.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Some places are also seeing some slivers of sunshine in the mix. Temperatures today are topping out in the 50s. A stalled cold front to our south will buckle as a weak wave develops on it and moves northeastward tonight into Wednesday morning.
Areas south of NYC and Philadelphia will be grazed by a little bit of rain tonight into Wednesday morning with clouds everywhere else. Temperatures Wednesday will be in the low to mid 50s for highs. We should partially clear out Wednesday night setting us up for a nice but chilly day on Thursday with sunshine. Highs will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s which is a solid 10 degrees below average.
Friday brings the next weather system moving out from the Middle Mississippi Valley and heading straight east for the Mid Atlantic Coast. This puts us in line for a chilly rain later Friday into early Saturday. We may see temperatures settle into the lower 40s once the rain gets underway and there could be some wet snow in the mix well north and west of the coast. Rain should come to and Saturday morning from west to east with leftover clouds and a chilly north wind. Saturday’s highs will probably be just in the 40s to perhaps near 50. It should be a little better for Sunday though another cold front will be approaching with a chance for showers Sunday night. The common thread in our weather over the next week to 10 days will be that temperatures will be running 5 to 10 degrees (and at time more) below average for much of the time.
