Storm Exits Mostly Quiet With Weak Systems Into Early Next Week
Last night’s storm system is moving quickly away to the northeast taking with it the heavy rain and the howling winds along the coast and we will spend the day slowly improving. We should see partly sunny skies during the day. Temperatures are warm with the leftover warm air from last night hanging around for awhile today. We should see most highs in the mid to upper 40s with lower 40s inland west and north. There isn’t much showing up on the regional radar in Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England as most of the action is centered close to the Great Lakes and in Northern New England.
We are going to be in a weather “no mans land” through the weekend. Weather systems are on the weak side. We have a couple of cold fronts coming in from the north and both don’t amount to much. The first one on Saturday completely falls apart as it approaches. The second one on Sunday is perhaps a little less weak and that could set us up for a couple of showers Sunday afternoon.
This leaves us with mostly dry weather through the weekend with temperatures running a little above average. Look for no worse than partly sunny skies Friday and Saturday. There could be a few clouds from that first dying front Saturday. Highs Friday will be in the low to mid 40s. Saturday high temperatures will be in the mid to upper 40s.
Sunday we have the next weak weather front appraoching so we will call it partly sunny for now early in the day and more clouds later in the day. I will throw in the chance for a shower or two in the afternoon and evening but it conceivably come through dry with no rain. Highs will be in the warm upper 40s and lower 50s.
Next week looks to start dry. Sunday’s cold front will stall to the south of us and there will be a series of weak waves that will be moving along it. This might set us up for some precipitation late Tuesday into Wednesday and perhaps again later next week but given the model’s propensity for showing snow in the long range only for it to disappear, we will just leave it be for now and refrain from speculating other than to say that in a winter where it doesn’t want to snow in anyway along the Northeast and Mid Altantic coastal plain, it is going to take everything lining up perfectly for that trend to change.
