Wind Blown Hair Warning Late Sunday Monday Gusts 50 MPH Plus
Wind blown hair, hat hair, and bad hair weather all wrapped up into one this weekend between the rain tonight into Sunday and the howling winds that are coming Sunday night night and Monday, it is a reminder that the signs of early spring are appearing. Strong storms and big wind events are typical of this time of year.
Get ready to blow away beginning Sunday afternoon across Pennsylvania and then reaching New Jersey to Southern New England. Gusts over 50 mph will be common place when this is all said and done. We will blow away Sunday night into Monday night and those winds will howl. I would not be surprised at all to see trees down and power outages from this. High Wind Watches are up now across many areas of the East with more to come. I decided this morning mid level water vapor imagery this morning which really shows how dramatic the situation is aloft with that huge moisture feed and what it looks like when you have a ridge in the Eastern US and a deep trough in the West.
The strong tropical feed is flooding the Lower Ohio and Tennessee Valley with tropical moisture. The warm sector is pushing northward and the table is set for severe weather outbreak today across the Mid-South. Rain on the regional radar hasn’t made northward progress but it will this afternoon and evening when you can expect rain to arrive on our doorstep.
Tonight into Sunday morning it is going to rain and during the early morning hours it will rain heavy. 1 to as much as 2 inches of rain is likely and don’t rule out a thunderstorm either. Then by mid morning the bulk of the rain moves out and we spend the afternoon Sunday slowly improving sky wise and waiting for the winds to start howling.
The map above shows the wind gusts forecast 7pm Sunday and the map below is for 7am Monday. You can expect those winds to howl all night long Sunday night and notice that there are large areas both along the coast and inland that will gust over 40 mph and some areas over 50 mph.
By Monday afternoon perhaps the extreme gusts start to ease a bit but it is a large area that will be gusting to 40 mph plus with sustained 20 to 35 mph or even sustained gales through much of this wind event. At least we will have a mix of sun and clouds Monday but it will be cold with temperatures in the 30s and wind chills down in the teens. Certainly it will be a day of windblown hair, bad hair, and hat hair across the Northeast & Middle Atlantic states.
Winds should finally begin to subside on Tuesday with some sunshine and highs back into the 40s. Next week sees no major storms though a few minor systems might dot the landscape. I don’t see a threat for snow and it may very well be that unless the stars line up just right in the next 2 weeks, the snow threats may be done for the season and it is on to spring. We shall see.
