High Wind Warning Coastal NJ, NYC, Long Island, Coastal Ct,

Wind Advisory Flash Flood Watch Inland

The first warnings are out and they are for wind. High Wind Warnings are posted from Coastal New Jersey to Southern and Central New England for Thursday night into Friday morning. Wind Advisories are up for inland areas. Southerly winds will increase and then they will be howling tomorrow night which will be more fitting for Halloween than Christmas Eve. Wind gusts to 60 mph are possible into Christmas morning.

Inland areas where the snow cover is running at over a foot in some places we have Flash Flood Watches posted for the Eastern half of Pennsylvania and Northwest New Jersey, the Hudson Valley north of Route 84 as well as the Catskills, Northwest Connecticut and much of New England. Flood Watches for river flooding are up for Northeast Virginia and Maryland. Finally we have a risk for severe weather from Southern New Jersey southward and I expect that risk area to be extended further north.

There are no issues tonight and actually for much of Thursday Christmas Eve but later in the afternoon and tomorrow evening weather conditions will deteriorate as rain moves in and winds begin to increase from the south. Temperatures tonight will hold in the upper 30s to mid 40s and may even rise a bit late tonight. Highs Thursday will be in the mid to upper 50s with 60s from Southern NJ and Southern Pennsylvania southward.

The worst of this will be tomorrow night with heavy rain, thunderstorms, and howling winds. A squall line of thunderstorms will move through from west to east during the early morning hours Christmas Day.

Rainfall amounts from this storm will be substantial and it comes after our snowstorm from last week. Much of that snow is still on the ground especially inland where 1 foot plus amounts were quite common. Melt it all at once and add 2 to possibly 3 inches of rain on top of that and you have flooding potential

Weather conditions should improve from west to east on Christmas Day though it will be windy and cold. The coldest air arrives Friday night into Saturday. Temperatures Friday will settle in the 30s. Highs Saturday with sunshine will be in the upper 20s and lower 30s. Sunday look for some sunshine with highs in the low to mid 30s.
