Showery Rains Tonight into Saturday Then Windy & Colder Sunday,

Next Week Cooler Than Normal

We have arrived at the door step of the weekend and with that we have to deal with an approaching cold front. a developing low offshore, and Tropical Storm Philippe. It is a complicated set up where Philippe and the offshore system will merge to form a strong storm tonight and Saturday. The low center is headed to Eastern Maine/Atlantic Canada and then northwest into Quebec. The resulting heavy rains of several inches will extend from Northern NY eastward into Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. Flash flooding is possible.

Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England is on the southern edge of all this and will see some rain as the cold front passes. However we will probably be spared heavier rains to the north and northeast. Clouds are rolling in from the west today and there could be a few scattered showers around. Highs today will be in the 70s.

Satellite loops are picking up on all three features. Tropical Storm Philippe is nearing Bermuda as a sheared tropical cyclone while to the west of Philippe we see the developing non tropical low pressure system that ultimately will absorb Philippe and head northward, hooking back to the northwest into the cold front sweeping east. Showery rains across Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England will develop tonight and last into at least the first half of Saturday.

Everything in the atmosphere is moving along and with the hybrid coastal storm passing offshore of Southeast New England the heavier rain will be north and west of the low center. The low then sweeps the cold front eastward. Heavy rain shifts northward as the low hooks northwest toward the coast of Maine.

Once the rain moves offshore, look for increasing winds Saturday afternoon along with falling temperatures. We will likely see highs Saturday morning in the mid 60s to around 70 or so. However this set up will sweep much cooler (or colder) air southeastward and temperatures will likely fall back Saturday afternoon to the upper 50s and lower 60s by evening.

Winds will pick up from the northwest Saturday evening and overnight into Sunday. We will probably see gusts of 20 to 30 mph at times. Sunday morning lows will be in the mid 40s to low 50s as skies at least partially clear. Sunday sees a strong upper air storm covering the Northeast as the hybrid storm moves inland and northwest. The air aloft will be unstable so we probably see self destructive sunshine and developing clouds Sunday with highs just in the upper 50s to lower 60s. We will throw in the chance for an isolated passing shower.

The upper low in Eastern Canada will dominate the weather in the Eastern US all week long. This leaves us in a below average temperature scheme all of next week and probably beyond. Sunday night will be partially clear with most lows in the 40s. Monday again will be a day of some sunshine and developing clouds with the chance for a shower. Most highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Again we see the chance for an isolated shower. Tuesday a cold front will approach with sun, clouds and the chance for late showers and highs in the 60s. Then it is back to chilly but mostly dry for the rest of the week. Another storm system will impact the area next weekend but it is too early to speculate over whether it is a cold front or something more along the lines of a coastal low developing. All models continue to circle around this time frame for some storminess and we will be figuring this all out over the weekend.
