New England Storm Provides Cold Shots
New England Storm Provides Cold Shots
What a difference a day makes when you have an onshore wind. This afternoon’s 2pm surface map shows this quite well. In areas where yesterday we saw record highs in the mid to upper 80s, we are seeing an onshore flow and clouds with temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s. That’s still 10 degrees above normal but no records are being set today. The satellite loop shows lots of showers well west and north of us and that will continue overnight into Friday. Those showers won’t shift eastward until later in the day Friday and Friday evening. Once again how much of the shower activity survives remains to be seen. Some will but much of the area won’t see a whole lot of rain.
Off the Southeast US Coast near the Bahamas you can see the broad low pressure area is developing. Reconnaissance aircraft did not find a well defined circulation but if you look closely you can see that some convection is beginning to wrap around the surface low east of the Bahamas. This still has some time to become a tropical or subtropical storm before it moves northward up the east coast and gets absorbed by a developing non tropical storm that will bring some much needed rains to New England Friday night and Saturday.
In the short range, not much happens other than clouds and temperatures in the 60s tonight. Friday as we get into the warm sector we should see temperatures back into the 70s. Some showers are likely from later Friday afternoon into Saturday morning
Weather conditions will improve on Saturday but it will be windy with temperatures holding mostly in the 50s with lows in the 30s to low 40s Saturday night. Sunday will still be breezy with some sunshine and highs in the 50s. More reinforcing cold air arrives Monday and that could set us up for some freezes here Tuesday morning and Wednesday morning. It will also bring the first snows to parts of upstate NY and Northern New England on Saturday.
