Winter of the Snow Weenies Discontent Continues
Finally Some Sunshine, Saturday Storm Grazes Coast Warmer Early Next Week
At first I didn’t think it was going to happen after starting the day with lots of clouds but finally by mid morning we went to lots of sunshine and it was a mostly sunny afternoon with temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s. The satellite shows skies are clear for much of the Northeast and Northern Mid Atlantic states with most lows in the 20s to near 30. The radars are quiet and will remain so through Friday.
Thursday is shaping up nice and sunny with highs mostly in the 30s. Friday look for sunshine giving way to arriving clouds with highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Then we watch low pressure in the Gulf States head up the East Coast Friday night into Saturday morning.
Models are continuing to struggle with the track though the boundaries are tightening up a bit in the last 24 hours. It does appear like a grazing for coastal areas from Eastern Virginia to Southern New England. There might be some wet snow on the northwest edge of the precipitation shield but it won’t amount to much. This would be for late Friday night into Saturday morning.
Once the low moves out weather conditions should improve. Saturday’s highs will be in the 30s to near 40. Sunshine comes back Sunday with highs in the 40s. Then we move on to Monday and Tuesday of next week which look to be two warm days with highs in the 50s.
If this system on Saturday passes offshore where get little or no precipitation, then we may have to wait until next Wednesday before we see any showers and that would come with the next cold front. The winter of the snow weenies discontent continues.
