Snow Showers Moving Through Very Cold Temperatures
It really feels like a mid January day outside. Snow showers are developing as the strong March sun heats up the cold unstable air. We are seeing a lot of clouds around this afternoon and some streaks of snow are showing up on the regional radar.
Here we are at early afternoon and we have temperatures that are still in the low to mid 20s. Winds are from the northwest up to 20 mph so you can knock off at least 10 degrees as far as the wind chills are concerned. This will continue for the rest of the afternoon and then we will see snow showers disappear through this evening.
Local radars are showing snow showers that have popped up and are moving southeastward. Most of you will probably not see them but don’t be surprised if you see flurries passing you by along with the heavier snow shower that could pop up between now and this evening.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
LOCAL RADAR PHILADELPHIA
Very cold temperatures are forecast for tonight as skies should clear. Lows north and west of the coast could drop into the low teens and single digits while mid to upper teens will be the lows Thursday morning in the warmer urban centers and along the coast. Thursday should see some slight moderation and we should be able to reach into the 30s by late afternoon. Look for a mix of sun and clouds and there is still the risk of a snow shower or two in this very cold air mass.
For Friday the new NAM model along with the rest of them are showing a weak low moving off the North Carolina coast and heading straight east like several others we have seen this winter. There will be a weak area of snow north and west of the low that will likely move across Pennsylvania Maryland and New Jersey late Friday afternoon into Friday night. Looking at the overall atmosphere this looks like it could produce a coating to an inch or so with the best chances for the inch or so as you head south in New Jersey south of Route 194 and in Pennsylvania south of Route 76. Otherwise Friday will be a cloudy day with highs into the 30s though where it snows it could be closer to 30 or even in the upper 20s. There isn’t much room for upside here but I would watch the areas in South Jersey and Delaware for perhaps a little ocean enhancement that could nudge amounts toward the “high” end.
Once the low Friday night passes out to the east we should see some improvement Saturday with clouds and some sun with temperatures nudging into the 40s. The next storm is going to be a big one for the Great Lakes and we could see a large severe weather outbreak Saturday across the Lower and Middle Mississippi Valleys and on Sunday across the Southeast & North Florida. Clouds will thicken up Saturday night with a cold rain developing during the early morning hours. It may be cold enough inland for precipitation to start as a wintry mix of snow sleet and freezing rain before changing to rain. Sunday that warm front to the south will be stubborn. It will be a raw rainy day with temperatures in the 40s. Weather conditions should improve on Monday with some sunshine. Not much cold air is behind this storm so we should see dry conditions into the middle of next week with near seasonal temperatures. That will be a nice switch from what we are seeing at the moment.
