Wrapping Up A Nice Weather Day Some Showers Overnight Into Tuesday
With all our attention front and center on the Coronavirus outbreak, at least weather is not seriously adding to issues. We have seen little impact from major storms not just here but for the most part across the US for the last couple of weeks. This week we see little impact from major activity and it will be just minor weather systems moving along in the next several days. Today of course was a very nice day all the way around with a good deal of sunshine until a few hours ago as high clouds started coming up from the south and they are increasing as a weather front approaches from the west.
For now the regional radar is showing some shower activity offshore the Delaware coast. We will likely see some shower activity pick up overnight and any showers will last into the start of the Tuesday morning commute. After that any rain should end with leftover afternoon clouds. Tuesday’s highs will be in the 50s.
Wednesday should be a nice day with sunshine giving away to increasing high clouds later in the day. Highs will be in the 50s. Then we set up an onshore flow and the likelihood for some rain later Wednesday night into Thursday. We will be waiting for a warm front to move by.
Thursday is the first day of spring and we will be seeing rain for the first part of the day. Eventually that warm front will get by but it will struggle a bit until low pressure in the Plains races to the Great Lakes Thursday night and on Friday. This should bring the warm front through here Thursday night and set us up for a warm day Friday with the chance for showers or a thunderstorm. If we get enough sun highs will reach into the 70s in many areas.
The first weekend of spring will be dry but on the chilly side especially on Sunday as high pressure builds in from the north. Highs Saturday will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s and Sunday’s highs will be just in the 40s. There really isn’t much that is changing in the upper air pattern going forward. We will continue to see cold air spread out across Southern Canada and into the US that will keep things below average temperature wise as each cold air mass moves through. This is followed by brief warm ups in between. Nothing major is in the cards through early next week though storminess could increase a bit as we head toward the end of the month and the beginning of April.
