Rain Still A Threat Wednesday
We have some more rain to chew through as we watch a pretty impressive upper air storm in the midwest drive the circulation of the east coast. You can see the long stream of clouds coming out from the Pacific and into the Gulf States and up the east coast. I don’t think we have seen a feeder of moisture like that for months around here. Radars to the southwest show more rain and it is likely that some of that rain is going to get in here during Wednesday.
Rainfall amounts Tuesday averaged between a quarter to a half inch in most places and I’m thinking Wednesday we should see double that for most areas putting the 2 day total in the 1 inch rain. What I’m hoping for is perhaps a little bit more than that if those rains can hold together.
There should be a surge of rain this morning and then another round this afternoon but there will be dry periods in between. The final shot will come Wednesday evening when a cold front moves on through with some showers. After that dry air returns and we should see improving weather conditions here on Thursday with a mix of sun and clouds.
Temperatures Wednsday are going to be tough to figure because of the marine layer being stubborn especially from New York City north and east. South of there toward Philadelphia and South Jersey there should be a little warm sector action and it should make it into the upper 50s to some lower 60s. Thursday will be cooler with highs in the low 50s on average. Then its dry Friday through Sunday with some sunshine each day. Highs in the 40s to near 50.
Models are showing low pressure moving up the coast early next week but still rather short on the details regarding strength. This would be another shot for a solid rainfall if it plays out right. This would be for perhaps Monday night into Tuesday.
