One Last Surge of Rain Sunshine Monday Into Tuesday
Hopefully you got through this miserable Sunday. Rainfall amounts in most of the area have been underwhelming so far but it didn’t matter. Cloudy raw conditions dominated on a northeast winds. Light rain fell much of the day. Clouds are still locked in along the East Coast and over us. We have improving weather on the way for the start of the new week.
Radars both regional and local do show one last area of light to moderate rain. The heaviest rain today fell across much of Eastern Pennsylvania where 2 or more inches have fallen so far. We see some patches of heavy rain moving east. Some of that will hold together through this evening as it moves eastward. Rains should end from west to east tonight and should be mostly gone by the early morning hours.

Even in the most dire of patterns we do get some breaks and that is coming for Monday and most of Tuesday. Sunshine should dry things up nicely. There is no real cold air behind this system so the May sun will cause temperatures to bounce nicely from today’s miserable 50s. High temperatures should reach into the 70s in most places Monday afternoon.
Tuesday brings the next cold front our way but this one is dropping down from the north. This should keep us in more of a west wind which allows up to warm up further. We should see sunshine into the afternoon before the front nears. When it passes late in the day or Tuesday evening there could be some scattered showers or a thunderstorm. Temperatures will reach the mid 70s to lower 80s before the front passes.
Wednesday is a bit of a tricky day. The cold front moves south of us and stalls over Virginia/Delmarva. Sometimes you can get lucky and dry air from New England pushes the cloud line south of us. This could at least give us some breaks of sunshine with more sun to the north of NYC and less to the south. Temperatures will be cooler with an ocean wind so highs will be just in the 60s with 50s along the coast. Then the next warm front cold front combination approaches for Thursday and Friday.
Rain comes back Thursday ahead of the warm front and then we wait to see how far north it gets before the cold front arrives Friday with its showers. Mother’s Day and the weekend loom large for most of us and the weekend will hinge on whether the cold front stalls with another wave on it or does it keep on moving. This will be the forecast puzzle for the upcoming week.
