WARM AHEAD OF COLD FRONT TODAY
WATCH FOR PASSING SHOWERS TONIGHT
COOLER FRIDAY SATURDAY WARMER SUNDAY
We are looking at another day of warm temperatures ahead of the next cold front coming through tonight. Temperatures are starting off in the mid 50s to lower 60s and we should see highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. There isn’t much cloud cover on the satellite loops this morning as we sit on the periphery of the upper air high sitting to our south. There is just enough room for a cold front to drop through tonight which will bring down some cooler air from Canada over the next two days. Unlike Tuesday this front appears to have much less to work with so only passing showers are forecast with no risk for severe weather.
Radars are quiet over much of the Northeast & Middle Atlantic states this morning. We could see a few showers dotting the radars later this afternoon and evening.
Friday and Saturday bring a weak onshore flow of cooler air though still above average for this time of year. Most highs will be in the lower 70s Friday and Saturday with nights in the 50s. We should see some sunshine on Friday and Saturday. Sunday look for a mix of sun and clouds as yet another weak front approaches with highs in the upper 70s to some lower 80s. Then its back to onshore winds though this time around the high building will be stronger and the onshore flow will be stronger as well as it will build down the entire East Coast.
With the building of the upper high along the East Coast it creates an environment of lower than normal pressures in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. While there has been lots of disturbed weather across the Western Caribbean upper air winds have been hostile for development. Those strong upper air winds are forecast to relax this weekend and low pressure is show by most weather models to develop in the NW Caribbean and then head into the Gulf of Mexico next week. This system needs to be watched for the potential of tropical cyclone development though usually systems like this tend to take the slow development route.
