Winter Storm Ends Weather Improves But Cold Into The Weekend

The biggest snow storm in may areas of the Northern Mid Atlantic to Southern New England in 2 years is now all but done. The satellite picture actually shows the low center east of the New Jersey coast and south of Long Island this morning with a large circulation extending all the way up into upstate NY and Northern New England. Winter Storm Warnings will expire later this morning and weather conditions will start to improve later today however it will be cold as temperatures will likely hover between 30 and 35 all day. Winds were howling along the coast all night and will continue to be strong and gusty into the afternoon before relaxing. Some breaks of sun should develop through the clouds later today.

We are going to be very cold over the next couple of days which means this snow will be on the ground for awhile and everything refreezes tonight. Clear skies breezy and very cold over night will send temperatures down to the teens to low 20s by morning.

High pressure will build in Friday so we will see sunshine but it will be another cold day with highs mostly between 30 and 35 and then another drop down to the teens and low 20s by Saturday morning. Temperatures should start to moderate a bit this weekend. Highs will be in the 30s Saturday and in the 30s to near 40 on Sunday. Saturday should see sunshine.

Sunday we have a weak weather front coming through so that will mean clouds. Highs will be in the 30s to around 40. There isn’t a whole lot for this front to work on so while there could be a passing rain or snow shower, it shouldn’t amount to much and for most Sunday will be a dry day.

Next week brings us to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day which are Thursday and Friday. The week leading into Christmas weather wise will be a mild one as we go into a westerly flow in the upper atmosphere and cold air is temporarily cut off. There is a stalled frontal boundary to the south and the GFS attempts to bring a wave of low pressure up the coast Monday into Monday night with rain. We aren’t sure of this yet though we are sure of the fact that there isn’t any cold air around or at least enough of it to cause a problem. This wave currently not supported by other models, There is a cold front that will pass Monday night with a couple of rain showers as it goes by. Tuesday into Wednesday will be dry and temperatures should reach into the 40s each day.

Chrsitmas Eve brings a cold front with the likelihood for showers and some heavy rain possible as highs reach into the 50s. This front moves along and there is a shot of cold air from Canada that comes in behind the front so Christmas Day looks to be a cold one. As long as the front doesn’t wind up stalling the weather should be good for Christmas day and the weekend days that follow.
