Winter Spring Afternoon Temps 70s
This time of year all it takes is some sunshine and the right kind of wind and temperatures take off. We are experiencing some breaks of sunshine through the clouds and that is enough to boost temperatures into the 70s across much of Pennsylvania and New Jersey with a southwest to westsouthwest wind. Hudson Valley temperatures have reached 70 in some places but to the east across Long Island and Connecticut it is a south wind off the ocean that is keeping temperatures mostly in the 50s.
The satellite loop shows clouds lining up with a cold front to the west but showers aren’t exactly lighting up the radars this afternoon. Most of the action is to the south across eastern Virginia southward into the Carolinas where we have a marginal risk of severe weather there.
At the moment the local radars are on the quiet side and we will see what pops up during this evening as the front approaches the coast. Odds are that some scattered showers will pop up but I’m not expecting anything that should be too problematic through this evening.

Weather conditions will improve tonight with some leftover clouds. Temperatures will have a tough time falling and will settle in the mid 30s to lower 40s by morning. There are no changes to the weekend forecast with some sunshine, a gusty breezy and a colder Saturday with highs just into the 50s. By Sunday morning we will be in the 20s to near 30 as colder air finally gets in. Sunday will be mostly sunny most of the day but it will be cold with highs mostly in the 40s.
Late Sunday night into Monday afternoon a weak system passes to our south and off the Delaware coast. Only the GFS model does anything with this and would argue for some snow late Sunday night into midday Monday. This is the only model that is doing anything with this and it produces about a quarter of an inch of liquid precipitation. In the dead of winter it would be a coating to a couple of inches but the fact that no other model is showing much here and give the very flat nature of the upper flow, we have strong doubts about this. I think there could be a rain or snow shower or two late Sunday night into Monday morning with leftover clouds in the afternoon. Monday’s highs will be just into the 40s. Tuesday and Wednesday of next week look dry sunny and chilly with highs in the 40s. Thursday brings a cold front and chance for showers with highs in the 40s to near 50. No major storms are on the horizon for here and for much of the nation. The major storm in the Great Plains to the Great Lakes over the last two days has basically taken all the zip out of the atmosphere and we will likely see rather tranquil conditions at least through next week.
