Saturday Sunshine Gives Way To Sunday Showers Week Ahead Outlook

Friday was a day of strong winds and record breaking highs reaching the 80s in many places. Today will be a bit more seasonal but still above average for this time of year. The strong winds have settled down and we have clear skies on the satellite for the most part. This will give us a day of sunshine. High temperatures however will be noticeably cooler today in the 60s which is still above average for this time of year. Saturday is definitely the better of the two weekend days as the next storm system organizes over the Great Lakes with some southern energy that gets involved.

The flow turns onshore Saturday night into Sunday setting up a moist flow as clouds increase Saturday night. A warm front forms to the south setting up a developing area rain that moves in from south to north early Sunday morning.

Sunday will be) a day of rain or showers with highs into the 60s south of the warm front with 50s to near 60 to the north of it. The Storm Prediction Center is indicating a risk for severe weather from Central New Jersey and Southern Pennsylvania (south of Route 78) southward into the Middle and South Atlantic States.

A more uniform rain area means rainfall amounts from NYC north and east will be an inch or more. To the south of there with the rain more showery in nature, amounts will be a bit less unless a thunderstorm gets involved. Most of the rain or showers should be over with late Sunday afternoon or evening.

Once the front moves offshore, the pressure gradient tightens up again and that means strong winds though this time the strongest winds (wind advisory criteria) will likely be over New England. To the south of there into the Northern Mid Atlantic states gust of 30 to 40 mph are likely later Sunday night into Monday which is just below advisory criteria. Sunshine returns for Monday and Tuesday with highs both days in the 50s. Wednesday clouds return with an onshore flow again or a south wind at best. This will keep temperatures in check. We will also see increasing clouds as yet another cold front approaches for Thursday. We will see some rain from this but it may get complicated by a developing wave so we will be watching for that possibility. Otherwise it will turn chilly for late week after the front passes. Timing suggest dry chilly weather for Easter Weekend at the early stage long range look ahead.
