Rain Today Some Improvement Sunday, Week Ahead Outlook

We have arrived at the weekend and we are going to start it off with gloom & doom today and tonight. Low pressure is moving across the Ohio Valley and weakening. A secondary low is developing offshore Eastern North Carolina. The result is rain for Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England. The rain will be lighter as you go north and northeast in the Hudson Valley and Connecticitut with rainfall amounts there of a half inch or less while rain amounts from Central and South Jersey and points southward will be on the order of an inch to an inch and half before it is all done by daybreak Sunday.

As far as temperatures are concerned it will be a raw day of northeast winds and temperatures in many areas not getting out of the low and middle 50s. Satellite loops are showing clouds continuing to stream in from the west and the regional radar shows rain with some heavier downpours heading east across Pennsylvania. The heaviest rains will be during the afternoon and through the first part of tonight.

The rains will be ending early Sunday morning from west to east probably before daybreak. Then we have our fingers crossed that the north wind will bring down some drier air. This should allow for decreasing clouds from west to east and north to south Sunday morning and some developing sunshine Sunday afternoon. It will be chilly with highs in the 50s to around 60 degrees.

The new week begins with a large lagging upper trough for Monday into Tuesday leaving the area in a cold unstable air mass. This means that we will see clouds developing Monday along with the chance for some patchy scattered afternoon and evening showers. Highs Monday will be in the 50s to around 60 degrees.

We will probably still see clouds and the chance for a passing shower Tuesday but skies should be partly sunny otherwise with Tuesday highs again in the 50s to around 60 degrees. Like last week, the second half of the week looks calm and quiet with sunshine Wednesday and Thursday and temperatures in the 60s.

This active and stormy pattern continues with low pressure developing in the Gulf States and Southeast and likely running up the East Coast in some form or another. Once again this comes as we head into another weekend. Friday looks dry with arriving clouds and then it appears we will see some rain and wind later Friday night and Saturday. This would make it the 7th straight weekend of rain. Models are showing a major storm developing and moving up the coast but we are going to wait for some additional comfirmation in coming days. All models have it which leads to a high confidence that something is going to happen.
