Starting off the Pacific , the satellite tells the story today, we continue to have this stubborn gulf of Alaska storm, which is causing a strong pacific jet to come through the west coast, with a series of storm systems coming onto the west coast over the next several days, this will cause a progressive pattern to develop through this weekend and upcoming week
Today we will be cloudy and continued on the chilly side as a warm front begins to approach but remains west of us, also some rain/snow/sleet showers are possible, especially N & W of I95, highs in the low 40s NE PA to mid to upper 40s along the coast
As the warm front approaches tonight, winds will change to the southeast , keep clouds in place and begin the warm up with lows in the low 30s NE PA to upper 30s, low 40s along the coast
By Sunday and especially Monday high pressure will shift off the coast, winds will turn to the SSW and we will get very warm through Wednesday with highs in the upper 40s low 50s NE PA to upper 50s along the coast and lows in the low to mid 40s along the coast to upper 30s NE PA
What we are going to see is something similar to what we saw during the thanksgiving time period , a ridge building into the Midwest which will influence us with warmer weather but with the negative NAO , the warmest conditions will remain well west of us, as a cold front will begin to drop south from Canada on Tuesday and begin to squash this ridge
By Wednesday a weak cold front will be dropping into the area, most likely coming through Wednesday night with showers , and a cool down behind it
Thursday through next weekend we will have several cold frontal passages under a progressive pattern with temperatures around average, highs in the upper 30s NE PA to mid to upper 40s along the coast, lows in the mid to upper 20s NE PA to low to mid 30s along the coast.
