Week Ahead Cold Start Then Wind Rain Late Thursday As Next Storm Tracks West

The last very cold air mass which we have seen many of in the last 6 weeks has moved into the Eastern US. We have a cold day ahead but the sun will take a little bit of the sting out of the air. Highs today will be not out of the 20s. Snow remains on the ground for another few days but it will get melted and it will wash away later this week as our pattern is changing for the short term. Satellites and radars are not busy today as high pressure moves in and yesterday’s complex weather system is long gone to the east.

We have another very cold night ahead of us with clear skies. Temperatures by morning once again will be down in the teens and many inland spots will be 10 degrees or less. This however will be the last of the very cold nights.

Tuesday sees the core of the cold air mass moving out but there is another high that builds to the northwest that will slow the warm up down somewhat but it will ultimately give way. Temperatures this afternoon should at the very least reach the low to middle 30s with no worse than partly sunny skies.

Wednesday the warm up will accelerate as high pressure builds to the east and south and winds begin to turn to the south. We may have some clouds that will start to roll in as the atmosphere begins to prime up for the next storm system. Highs will reach the mid 40s to around 50. The south wind is not a very warming wind thanks to the influence of the ocean temperatures which are in the 40s.

Thursday things start to go downhill as a storm developing in the Southern Plains tracks across the Upper Ohio Valley/Southern Great Lakes and then into the Saint Lawrence Valley Friday. The gradient will tighten up and the south wind will increase. It could get rather gusty late Thursday and Thursday night especially along the coast. Wind advisories are possible late this week but we won’t know for sure until Thursday.

The cold front will bring a windswept soaking rain here as it spreads across Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England later Thursday afternoon and for Thursday night. A rumble or two of thunder is possible as well. Temperatures Thursday will reach into the 60s in most places as the warm front with this storm system sets well to our north.

Behind the front we see colder air but nothing exceptional High pressure builds in and we should see improving weather conditions Friday and a nice weekend with temperatures close to average for this time of year. We don’t have any risks for snow to worry about over the next 10 days.
