Dry Chilly Weather Into Wednesday
Next Storm Bring Rain Coast Snow Ice Well Inland Late Week
Yesterday’s storm system is now moving away to the east and today will be a day of slow improvement. The satellite loop shows clouds moving from north to south in the Northeast and this should lead to a gradual decrease clouds and a gradual increase in the amount of sunshine especially for this afternoon. Temperatures today will top out in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Radars are going into quiet mode today and we will remain precipitation free probably into Thursday.
High pressure from Eastern Canada which has been basically holding there for days thanks to a block, will bleed low level cold air southward and tonight skies should clear and morning lows Tuesday will be in the 20s. Teens are likely north and west of the coast where we have some snow cover. Tuesday should be a day of sunshine with highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
Wednesday will be another chilly day with some sunshine with highs again in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Things begin to change Thursday. Low pressure that has moved into the west will be a major storm for the Central and Northern Plains with heavy snow and blizzard conditions from Nebraska to the Dakotas. The block will keep that low from moving up into Canada and instead it will translate its way eastward.
The primary low will remain strong and the secondary low will form close to the coast, probably near Chesapeake Bay and then hug the coast northward. Look for increasing clouds Thursday with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Rain will move in Thursday night and inland we could see some snow and ice changing to rain as the low moves northward into New England Friday. This system could produce sizeable snows in Western Pennsylvania to Upstate NY and interior New England. Longer range looks colder as the blocking pattern holds and a colder flow from Canada develops with a polar connection.
