Parade of Storms Begins Tuesday Lasting Into Next Weekend

After Saturday’s washout it, we have a better Sunday ahead of us. Low pressure is offshore and a weak high builds in between the East Coast and a series of storm systems that we will be dealing with this week. Before the parade gets here, we have sunshine for today with just some passing leftover clouds. Temperatures today should respond to the lack of a strong onshore flow and highs will reach the 60s in most inland locations. South and east facing shorelines of New Jersey, Long Island and Southern New England however will be in the cooler 50s. Radars are nice and quiet today and will remain so into Monday.

The new week starts of dry however we are going to see a small low pressure area develop off the Southeast US coast Monday. It is not a strong system but it will move up the coast and bring rain for Tuesday. This looks innocent enough however given that yesterday’s system produced double the precipitation forecast by most models, it is possible we could see this system outperform.

It is not the only system that we have to deal with this week. The first low straddles the coast Tuesday with rain developing during Monday night and lasting into Tuesday afternoon before ending from south to north. Then as more energy from the West Coast Winter Storm moves east, a second and stronger system follows right behind it for later Wednesday into Thursday. This system likely will produce heavier rain.

At least we have a dry Monday with sunshine giving way to arriving clouds. The onshore flow will be more pronounced Monday so highs will be mostly in the 50s everywhere with 40s along south and east facing shorelines. Then we get into rain Monday night into Tuesday afternoon. It is the land of gloom and doom once again.

A short break in the rain is forecast for Tuesday night into Wednesday afternoon before more rain develops during the afternoon and evening from southwest to northeast. Low pressure comes out of the Lower Ohio Valley and tracks off the New Jersey coast Thursday with more rain. That rain will likely linger for much of the day Thursday. A short break in the action arrives Friday but another storm system is headed here for the weekend.

It stands to reason that by the time next weekend’s rain system is done, we will have seen a total of 2 to 3 inches of rain cumulative for this week. Add yesterday’s washout and we are talking 3 to 4 inches of rain for the first week of March alone. One common thread through this week and into next weekend is that temperatures will be generally running above average though when it rains, it will be raw with that gloom and doom feel to it. Happy spring!
