Rain Into This Evening Weather Conditions Improve Sunday Dry Week Ahead
Overnight and into this morning everything moved along on course. Winter Weather Advisories for the inland counties of NW New Jersey and Northeast Pennsylvania are cancelled. Rain is arrived later and most temperatures are above freezing. Winter Weather Advisories have pretty much run their course in NW New Jersey and Northeast Pennsylvania as they expire at noon today. For everyone else within earshot of Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England today it is rain. An inch to an inch and a half is forecast. Temperatures will be in the 40s. Warm spots in South Jersey and Southeast Pennsylvania will get into the 50s.
The arm of rain is evident on the satellite and regional radar loop which looks like one giant arm of rain moving through and lasting about 6 to 8 hours. Rains should end in the early afternoon in South Jersey and in NYC around 7 or 8pm. Eastern Connecticut and Long Island rains should end around 9 to 10 pm. An inch to an inch and a quarter of rain is likely in most places today.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Look for leftover clouds tonight with lows in the mid 30s to lower 40s. Sunday will be a breezy day with some sunshine and clouds. Most highs will be in the 40s. Then we transition over into the new work week with a dry weather pattern for much of the week.
We have a split flow ahead for next week which should keep things dry, uneventful and temperatures near normal for the most part. Weather models will continue their slow dance every six hours taking a storm at the end of the week and every place other than the one where it will ultimately wind up so I’m not wasting any time or energy on it right now to satisfy the never quenced thirst of snow weenies. Suffice to say that timing of the two energy streams will pretty much drive any development late next week and we have days to figure this one out.
