Major Storm Strong Winds Heavy Rains Will Taper Off Later Today

The Northeast is being pounded this morning by a major storm. Heavy rains continue and so do strong southerly winds which have been gusting 50 to 60 mph along the coast. We are waiting for winds to shift to the northwest as we are coming into high tides this morning and a south wind will mean moderate coastal flooding or worse especially for south and east facing shorelines. Flood Watches, High Wind Warnings, Wind Advisories, and Coastal Flood Watches and Warnings continue into early this afternoon.

We still have some work to do this morning with heavy rain, wind and some thunderstorms. The Storm Prediction Center has a marginal risk for severe weather this morning as the low center, which is as of tam off the coast of Southern Delaware continues to move its way northward and eventually the low will track just inland of the coast as it heads to New York State riding along or just east of the Hudson River.

Rough weather continues this morning but things should start to improve this afternoon with the low to the north. Temperatures will be in the 50s to near 60 all day long. Once the low center moves to the north, winds will shift to the northwest and we will see leftover clouds later this afternoon. Winds will gust to 30 mph or more after the wind shift but well off the highs we are seeing this morning ahead of the low.

This is the third time where we have been dealing with storms of some sort over weekends, and then once they play through, the work week winds up being dry. That is the case this time around as well. An upper trough will pass Tuesday so look for clouds and some sun. There is the risk for some scattered snow showers with the best chances inland. Most highs will be in the low to mid 40s. Wednesday will be a cold day with sunshine and highs mostly in the 30s to around 40. Then we will see temperatures rise a little Thursday and Friday but both days will be dry and most highs will be in the low to mid 40s. Right now we have no major storms set up for next weekend and in fact it is possible that we may be dry and quiet with no major weather issues right through Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
