Rainy Thursday Stalled Front Eventually Moves East Beautiful Weather Friday Through Sunday
A stalled out frontal boundary is going to be an issue today. On the lower right of the satellite is Hurricane Larry about to pass to the east of Bermuda. Larry has strengthened a the Atlantic ridge which is temporarily holding up this front along the East Coast. There you see clouds from Maine to Florida. On the southern end of that is what is left of Tropical Storm Mindy which moved across the Florida Panhandle yesterday. Mindy is moving northeast and will eventually weaken into a remnant low and is not an issue here.
Since we are not dealing with moisture from a remnant tropical storm or hurricane, we will be seeing rainfall amounts that are more typical of stalled fronts. Rainfall amounts in Eastern Pennsylvania and most of New Jersey won’t be enough to cause any serious flooding issues. Areas to the east from Coastal New Jersey to Southern New England and Long Island could see an inch to an inch and a half of rain but spread out over the entire day, this should be easy to absorb.
Local and regional radars are on the busy side with waves of rain and embedded areas of moderate to heavy rain moving northeast. Heavier rain patches extend south into Delaware while the rain does tail off as you head to the west.
Between the rain and the overcast skies, temperatures today will be going nowhere. Most highs will be just into the 70s and where the rain is falling steadily, temperatures there will be in the 60s. All of this finally moves offshore tonight and the rains end and skies clear. By morning lows will be in the 50s.
Friday begins a stretch of dry weather that will carry us into early next week. High pressure builds into the East and then settles offshore over the weekend. Look for lots of sunshine Friday with highs in the low to mid 70s. Saturday looks nice and sunny with highs in the mid to upper 70s. Sunday we will start to warm up and the dew points will come up a bit but will still be on the reasonable side. Highs Sunday with sunshine will be in the low to middle 80s. We will be very warm for Monday and Tuesday before the next cold front approaches midweek.
HURRICANE LARRY PASSES EAST OF BERMUDA, HURRICANE WATCHES FOR NEW FOUNDLAND
Hurricane Larry is passing east of Bermuda by about 200 miles putting some of the rain bands over the island today. Bermuda misses the core however as our cold front pushes east, Larry will be running and accelerating northeastward and heading right for Southeastern Newfoundland. Racing northeastward Larry will move across Newfoundland Friday night as a hurricane before heading toward Greenland. We will be talking about this tonight on the Joe & Joe Weather Show. Meanwhile for the shore areas in the Northeast it is all about rough surf and rip currents through Friday but slowly improving over the weekend.
