Over the past 24 hours or so, we have seen a shift in the weather pattern, a trough and stong storm system has entered the western US which lead to a building ridge in the east,couple that with a strong storm system tracking into the Great Lakes with the associated warm front north of us and you got a very warm SSW wind and that’s exactly what we got and will see over the next 36 hours or so
Today will be partly to mostly cloudy with a breezy SSW wind and highs rising into the mid 60s NE PA to the low 70s along the coast along with some modest humidity, lows tonight will not fall much under increasing clouds and a SW wind with lows in the mid 50s NE PA to upper 50s and ow 60s along the coast
Monday a cold front associated with the storm tracing into the Great Lakes will take a run at the area, but ahead of the front warm SSW winds will prevail with highs in the mid to upper 60s NE PA to lw to mid 70s along the coast, it will turn quite wet with this cold front late tomorrow afternoon through Tuesday morning
Late Monday afternoon as the front slowly slides east, the chance of showers will begin to increase, after 3 pm in East PA and after 5 pm in the NYC area
An area of low pressure will form along the front and move up the coast, this will make showers turn into a steady rain, possibly heavy at times through Tuesday morning ,the rain will begin to exit by late Tuesday morning/ early afternoon. Total rainfall is expected to range from 0.50-1.00. most rain will fall along the coast.
A colder air mass will move in Monday night with lows in the low to mid 40s NE PA to upper 40s along the coast and highs on Tuesday will struggle to reach 60 along he coast and remain in the mid 50s NE PA with breezy conditions and NW winds 10-20 mph
