Quiet Weather Continues Through Friday, Gloom & Doom Noreaster Weekend

The last couple of days we have been dealing with what we call self destructive sunshine. This is not a new term. It simply describes a cold unstable atmosphere aloft where days start mostly sunny and usually by mid morning, because of that cold atmosphere, clouds develop and sometimes scattered showers. We are still under the influence of a strong cold upper air storm in Eastern Canada. However the atmosphere is becoming more stable with time so today we should see no worse than partly sunny skies. Temperatures will respond today but climbing to the mid and upper 60s in some places. Radars are not an issue today at all.

The stabilization process will continue over the next few days as we see the upper low slowly weaken but it won’t move much until we get to Friday. Tonight should be partly to mostly clear. Most lows inland will be in the 40s while warmer urban centers will be in the low to mid 50s by morning. Wednesday looks like a nice day overall and no worse than partly sunny. Highs will be in the mid 60s to some lower 70s from north to south.

There is a weak weather front that will move through Wednesday night which doesn’t have much with it. However it will begin the process of strong high pressure in Central Canada building eastward into New England and southward down into the Mid Atlantic states. It still leaves us with a nice weather day Thursday of no worse than partly sunny skies.

Temperatures Thursday will range from the lower 60s across Northeastern Pennsylvania to the Hudson Valley and interior Connecticut, to the low 70s across Southern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and points southward. We will likely hold on to dry weather Friday with some sunshine and highs mostly in the 60s though it will be lower 60s north and upper 60s south.

Weather conditions will deteriorate Saturday as low pressure moves across the Lower Great Lakes and Ohio Valley and that low will redevelop off the Delaware coast Saturday night. Rain will develop Saturday and continue on and off into Sunday. It will be accompanied by a raw northeast wind and temperatures that will be in the 50s at best. It will make for gloom and doom conditions for the 5th weekend in a row and 18 of the last 21 weekends, we will see rain on at least 1 of the two weekend days. This is a noreaster but for now we think it will be a low end noreaster strengthwise. Weather models are struggling between the upper air storm over Eastern Canada. If it pulls out faster than forecast it could result in a stronger storm system over the weekend. That possibility is still there but for now we will lean to something that is manageable. We do have a new moon this weekend so tides will be running higher than normal as it is so coastal flooding will likely be an issue at high tides Saturday and Sunday. While the bulk of the rain may be done later Sunday there is still going to be the issue of the upper low and rain or showers may still be around Sunday night and Monday. We will have more on this tonight on the Joe & Joe Weather Show at 7:35pm on Youtube.
