Watching Coastal Low Should Stay Offshore

The entire flavor of this situation has changed from a few days ago when we were dealing with a wave on a front coming through and bringing snow. That lead system is so weak now you can barely find it. Energy is left behind across the Gulf states as the northern energy pivots and swings around. This energizes a second low in the Southeast and it does bring it perilously close to the coast Saturday night.

This situation is like a number of cases we saw this winter where the northern shortwave sharpens up just enough at the last minute to pull the coastal low and trough back westward to the coast. It would seem that the troughs may be just far enough apart to keep this from happening this time around or if it does, it would graze coastal areas of New Jersey and Long Island Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

I am leaning toward the offshore too little too late idea here with maybe a grazing for Coastal New Jeresy and Long Island Saturday night. If this is going to be pulled back westward look for the NAM model to start doing this either in the next run late this afternoon or the one that follows tonight. If not then look for Saturday to be cloudy and chilly with temperatures in the 40s and early clouds giving way to mostly sunny but chilly conditions on Sunday with highs in the 40s. It’s never easy.
