Slow Improvement Today Late Week Cold Front Brings Rain
Low pressure is moving offshore and to the east and that is taking an area of rain and wet snow offshore with it. Precipitation overnight did not amount to much. Weather conditions are set to slowly improve today with leftover clouds giving way to some developing sunshine from west to east. Temperatures today will be topping out in the low to middle 40s. These weather systems that we have been seeing lately have been on the weak side and there is a minimal amount of cold air in the US at this time. Warmer than average temperatures continue through the week.
We don’t see anything happening precipitation wise until late in the week and you can forget about any snow. The next storm system for the end of the week tracks so far to the west that it will be rain everywhere. Rain will make its way all the way up into Northern New England. When it rains in Northern New England in January you do indeed have a very warm weather pattern.
Tuesday and Wednesday will see sunshine or at least some sunshine both days with daytime highs in the 40s and nighttime lows in the 20s inland and low to middle 30s in warmer urban areas. Thursday we are looking at sunshine giving way to arriving clouds with highs in the 40s to near 50. Thursday night and Friday as a low heads for Lake Huron we have warm moist air that will be surging up the east coast and with it rain.
Rain will last until later Friday when the cold front passes. Highs Thursday will be in the mid 40s to lower 50s and highs Friday will be in the 50s. This front will pass and it will turn colder and drier over the weekend. However we continue to see an absolute lack of very cold air anywhere in the US as the upper flow from Canada remains locked up and very little of the cold air can bleed southward into the US. So while it will be colder over the weekend temperatures will still be at worst average or even a little bit above average.
