Strong Winds Sweeping Eastward Gusts 60 mph
High Wind Warning
We are waiting for a cold front to sweeping eastward across Pennsylvania to make it to the coast. This should occur in a few hours. Once that happens the winds will increase sharply. On the 4pm surface map the major storm sitting north of Lake Huron is churning away as its arms spiral around.
Behind the cold front in Central Pennsylvania is where the winds howl. There have been gusts today of 70 mph across parts of Michigan and the mountains of North Carolina and the reach of this storm is extensive. High wind warnings cover much of the Eastern US and the Great Lakes.
As of 7pm the winds over New Jersey and the coast are tame. The red numbers are the peak gusts reported in the last hour and we will see those numbers here and even higher numbers during the day on Monday as the gradient between the storm to the north and a high in Northern Plains will be at its tightest.
Parts of North Central NY are under a blizzard warning as the winds off Lake Ontario will bring heavy snows inland in that area. Lake effect snows are falling in Western Pennsylvania and in Southwestern NY and some of these areas will see locally heavy snows. For us the radars are going to be relatively quiet through Monday though a few snow showers from the lake effect and around the storm could survive the trip eastward. A few snow showers Monday would not be a surprise. Temperatures will fall into the 30s tonight. Monday’s temperatures will be mostly in the 30s with wind chills in the 20s and even the teens. Winds will continue into Monday night though they will be off their peaks. Winds will ease on Tuesday with some sunshine. Highs will be mostly in the 30s.
Low pressure will be moving across the Midwest Wednesday into Thursday. A weak low comes out of the Gulf and attempts to climb northward up the coast. There isn’t much support here for something to happen on a grand scale. Clouds will increase later Wednesday and a period of snow is possible Wednesday night into Thursday if these pieces come together. The possibility of this is low and given the nature of the winter it remains a bet against at the moment.
