Today we continue to be under the influence of an exiting sub tropical disturbance , with clouds humidity and of course scattered showers and thunderstorms. These showers and thunderstorms (capable of heavy downpours) will continue through the late afternoon hours before FINALLY exiting this evening. highs today will be in the low 70s interior to upper 70s along the coast, especially south NJ.
Tonight a drier air mass will move in with clearing skies and comfortable lows falling into the upper 40s low 50s NE PA to mid to upper 50s along the coast
Friday will bring something we have not seen in a longggg time …. SUNSHINE! We will have sunny skies and mild temperatures as there wont be much of an air mass change, just a drop in humidity. Highs in the low 70s NE PA to upper 70s to around 80 along the coast, lows in the low 50s NE PA to mid to upper 50s along the coast
Saturday, a cold front will drop SE into and through the area by the mid to late afternoon, we will see cooler temperatures but still a mild day with highs in te mid to upper 60s NE PA to low to mid 70s along the coast , the best lifting and dynamics will lift towards New England, forcing the front to stall just south of the area Saturday night, colder air will rush into the area, with lows falling into the upper 30s NE PA to the mid 40s along the coast. There will be a chance of isolated shower but most of the area should be dry.
This is when things get interesting, a secondary disturbance will drop south out of Canada and interact with the front, an area of low pressure will form over the Tennessee River valley ad track ENE off the Delaware coast Sunday afternoon and evening, so we will be under cloudy skies with an increasing chance of rain Sunday , and eventually steady rain by Sunday afternoon
However, keep in mind cold Canadian air will be spilling in at the same time, highs on Sunday will only be in the mid 40s NE PA to low 50s along the coast and will fall into the low 30s NE PA to the low 40s along the coast, so I expect the rain to mix snow around and above 1500 feet with and potentially change to wet snow f your 2000 ft or above, this includes the Poconos and extreme NW NJ through NW Connecticut, below 2000 ft I just expect a mix and no accumulation at all however 2000 ft or above , there COULD be minor accumulations of coating to an inch , nothing major but obviously very early snow .
Below 1500 feet it will be rain, a very cold rain at that with temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s Sunday night , although I can’t rule out a few flakes mixed in if you are between 1000 ft and 1500 ft in elevation.
Monday through much of next week, a deep trough will remain over the east , leading to a chilly air mass in place with highs in the low to mid 50s NE PA to the upper 50s to low 60s along the coast , lows in the mid to upper 30s NE PA to the low to mid 40s along the coast .
