Week Begins On the Warm Side Unsettled Weather Tuesday Through Friday
Today may wind up being the best day of the week as a series of not so strong weather systems will be moving through the Eastern US this week may just wind up keeping things gloomy and doomy! However we do have today and we are already starting out the day on the warm side. However we are also seeing a warm front that will be setting up pretty much overhead and that will mean some clouds developing as we go through the day. You can see them on the satellite loop moving from west to east. Highs will reach the low and middle 50s but not much higher than that.
This warm front that is setting up will lie east west across Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England at least for awhile tonight and Tuesday. The bulk of any showers will occur north of the frontal boundary so that puts areas north of a line from say Allentown Pennsylvaia to just south of Long Island in the path of some showers Tuesday with more as you go north of Route 84.
There is a general absence of cold air just about everywhere in the US at the moment so rain verses snow is not an issue. We will see showers moving northeast through Upstate NY and New England leaving much of the rest of the area in clouds. Temperatures are going to be quite warm with highs reaching into the 60s in many areas.
The cold front with this low going to the Great Lakes will be close by Tuesday night and there could be some scattered showers with that. The front actually won’t pass through until late Wednesday and with that passage there could be another round of rain showers. Highs Wednesday will also be very warm and reaching the mid to upper 60s and that could mean some record highs being reached.
Once that front goes by we have some upper air features to deal with Thursday and Friday. It will also turn much cooler at the end of the week. This will leave us with highs in the 50s Thursday and in the lower 40s in most places Friday. There will also be a developing low to the east and an upper air trough that will be swinging east. That will likely bring some showers Friday morning and in areas inland in Southern New England, we could see some wet snow in the mix.
We will see drier back to normal January weather this weekend with some sun and highs in the 30s to near 40 by day and 20s to near 30 at night. Another low will pass to the south with a little snow in the Central Appalachians but this system looks to be weak and no major weather systems are in the cards for at least the next 10 days or more.
