Rain Ends Leftover Clouds Later Today Rain Freezing Rain Inland Late Friday More Rain Sunday

Today is the first of 5 consecutive days of rain as we have a cold front moving through today, a storm headed to our west with rain and freezing rain later Friday into Saturday. Another storm system follows Sunday as low pressure moves up the coast from the Southeast US. Some wet snow is possible with this system later Sunday into early Monday!  2020 ends wet and 2021 begins wet with not much white.

Our satellite and radar are showing sclouds and howers moving through. We should see the rain move offshore and dry up as we head into the afternoon with leftover clouds around. Temperatures today will settle in the 40s and colder air comes in late today and overnight.

Skies will be clearing out tonight and we will be cold by morning. Most lows will be in the mid 20s to lower 30s. Clouds will increase during New Year’s Day. The cold high moves into New England and eventually offshore so it will be a race between the precipitation coming up from the south and warmer air coming in from the east. The warm air wins at the coast from the get go but inland we will see areas struggle to get above freezing, at least for awhile.

This system appears to be rather straight forward. We are looking at a period of icing mostly inland. Areas in Central Pennsylvania northeast to the Catskills and north of Route 84 up to the upper Hudson Valley could see a longer period of icing. Most icing amounts will fall in the range of a tenth to a quarter of an inch of ice accretion.

Snow from this low will be mainly in Northeastern NY into Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine where it looks like it could be a 3 to 6/4 to 8 inch type snow event.

All of this starts to come to an end from west to east Saturday morning and we will have leftover clouds and perhaps some afternoon sunshine on Saturday. Highs will reach into the upper 40s and lower 50s before we drop off a bit Saturday night into Sunday morning. Unfortunately we have another storm system to deal with on Sunday.

The southern part of the cold front stalls out and another low develops on it and moves up the coast and then it passes off the Delaware/NJ coast Sunday night. Rain moves northward. In colder areas in Pennsylvania and New York and eventually New England we will see wet snow out of this. Cold air is marginal at best and it would seem that at least at this point, south of the Route 84 corridor it will be mostly a cold rain. We will take a closer look at this later today. Weather conditions improve Monday and it looks dry and relatively uneventful into Thursday of next week.
