Weather Improves Nice Chilly Sunday Afternoon Week Ahead Outlook
Weak low pressure has moved offshore and fallen apart as advertised. Now it is on to increasing amounts of sunshine for this afternoon. Colder air is moving in though this time of year the strengthening March sun does take the sting out of the cold. Highs will reach the upper 40s to lower 50s this afternoon and the drop to the 20s tonight with lower 30s in warmer urban settings around NYC & Philadelphia. The radars are done showing precipitation and they will be nice and quiet through Monday.
Monday is going to be a chilly day as high pressure moves across Northern New England. We will have plenty of sunshine for most of the day. Highs will reach the low and middle 40s but areas in Southern New Jersey and Southern Pennsylvania could see upper 40s to near 50.
Nothing much has changed regarding the outlook for this week as we remain in a rather fast west to east pattern with cold air masses coming in between each one. Tuesday we see the chance for showers early in the day before weather conditions start to improve. Highs will be in the 50s to around 60. Wednesday looks colder with sunshine and some late day arriving clouds. Highs will be mostly in the 40s as an onshore flow begins to set up. This brings a chance for showers late Wednesday night into Thursday. Then the warm front goes by and a cold front arrives for Friday with some showers and thunderstorms. Highs Thursday will be just into the 50s until the warm front passes.
Friday could be the one day this week that will turn out rather warm. These highs forecast could be underdone by a few degrees if we get enough sun. Upper 60s to mid 70s certainly seems doable and there is the chance for showers and thunderstorms at some point during the day Friday as a cold front passes. Friday is also the first full day of spring as the new season arrives on Thursday March 19th so the weather will certainly match the flavor of the new season. Windy colder weather follows Friday night and into next weekend. We still see no major storms to deal with in the next week to 10 days.
