Wind Advisory Gusts to 50 Mph At Times Nice Warmer Mid Late Week

Howling winds will be the story today as we have an intensifying storm in Southeastern Canada near New Brunswick and high pressure in Tennessee. The pressure gradient which is the change in pressure divided by the distance is showing it to be very tight. In other words large pressure change over a relatively short distance and that defines the wind. Wind Advisories are up from Maryland and Delaware all the way up through all of New England and that of course includes Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England.

With the wind comes in and out sunshine today due to the unstable atmosphere and will likely mean some rain and snow showers well inland. Temperatures today are going no where as most highs will sit between 40 and 45 degrees. The satellite is showing streamers of clouds running northwest to southeast across the Northeast.

We are getting some lake effect action today as the regional radar shows. Winter Weather Advisories are up for parts of upstate NY and also parts of Western NY and Western Pennsylvania. Borderline cold air means that if any of those lake effect streamers survive the trip south, we could see a rain or snow shower in the mix today.

Winds will remain strong and gusty tonight and an upper air disturbance will keep us in clouds. That will hold temperatures up overnight with lows mostly in the 30s. Around daybreak on Tuesday some places could see a scattered shower or two. Once that disturbance moves through look for increasing  sunshine and decreasing wind on Tuesday with highs in the 40s to near or just over 50 in some of the warm spots.

Warmer weather begins on Wednesday and carries us through the weekend. It also looks to be dry. The only nagging question will be at what point do we start dealing with nighttime and morning low clouds and whether any flow off the ocean becomes problematic. Right now the set up for Wednesday through Sunday doesn’t look like what we saw over the last couple of weeks of October so we will go with some sunshine each day. Highs will be in the 50s Wednesday and 60s Thursday into the weekend. Some inland highs will start approaching or going over 70 in some places. No rain is forecast through Sunday.

Hurricane Eta has strengthened rapidly overnight and continues to show indications that rapid strengthening will continue today. Max winds are now 90 mph and Eta could become a major hurricane prior to landfall on Tuesday in Nicaragua and Honduras. The slow movement will bring devastating rains to this region. Longer term there is a lot of uncertainty regarding whether it eventually emerges in the Northeast Caribbean.
