Storm Heads For Great Lakes Rain Thursday, Another Storm Brings Rain Sunday
We have a very active weather pattern ahead of us that sees 3 storm systems heading our way between now and the end of next week. Certainly for the first 2 storms these will be rain events for the most part for Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England because we do not have any real cold air and we do not have a cold air connection from Canada to the Northeast, at least for now.
This leaves us at least with a nice weather day today with some clouds around this morning that will give way to partly to mostly sunny skies. There are some areas of rain and snow showers on the radar in upstate NY but we expect those areas to diminish as we go through the day. It will be a warm day across all of Eastern Pennslvania with most highs in the upper 40s to mid 50s.
The next storm system is getting ready to move northeastward. We are seeing heavy snow today across the Central Plains to the Northwestern Great Lakes. There is absolutely no cold air around of quality anywhere in the Northeast so this leaves us with rain for most areas. Northern New England will be the only area that is going to be cold enough for any snow.
Clouds will increase tonight and rain will develop from west to east during the early morning hours to around daybreak. Temperatures ovenright will likely be in the 30s. If precipitaion comes in fast enough there could be a little snow or sleet on the front end well inland. Otherwise it is a miserable day of gloom doom and rain with highs just in the upper 30s and lower 40s. However Southern New Jersey south and west could see highs reaching into the 50s.
Rain will end Thursday evening and that will leave us with dry weather conditions for Friday and Saturday. Both days will feature sunshine with highs in the 40s. The next storm system will come out of the Southern Plains for later Sunday, Sunday night into Monday. Right now that at least indicates it will be rain at the coast. There might be a little more in the way of frozen or freezing precipitation well inland and we will be discussing those possibilities over the next couple of days. A third storm will head our way around the middle part of next week. That one stands a chance to bring more in the way of frozen precipitation but we are in a non winter winter where every storm that appears as a snowstorm in the long range either disappears or becomes a rain event and I would not expect much to be different this time around unless proven otherwise.
