After a nice warm up (although the period overall was cloudy and unsettled) we have a much colder and unsettled pattern developing
We had a cold front come through yesterday with heavy rain, anywhere from 1/2 to as much as 2 inches of rain fell area wide , today a trough is coming in with the flow turning to the northwest
For today the cold air will remain delayed with highs rising into the mid 40s to low 50s , there will be some increasing clouds later this afternoon and a slight chance of showers this evening as a secondary cold front comes through but most will be dry and the day will overall be a nice one.
But as cold air advection begins lows will fall into the 20s throughout most of the area , with lower 30s along the coast
Thursday all areas will struggle to get out of the 30s as a strong polar air mass really pushes in , with highs in the upper 20s to low 30s NE PA to mid to upper 30s along the coast along with gusty northwest breeze at 10-20 mph and tomorrow night lows will drop into the upper 10s NE PA to mid to upper 20s as the coast
Friday the coldest of the air will move out and we will moderate to near normal levels ahead of a clipper system with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s NE PA to mid to upper 40s along the coast and lows will be in the mid to upper 20s NE PA to mid 30s along the coast
On Saturday we will have increasing clouds with a clipper system that will come through the area with chilly conditions, widespread showers and light rain along the coast and a mixture of rain/snow over higher elevations of NW NJ and NE PA by Saturday afternoon , little to no accumulation expected just a sloppy day , highs will again struggle in the 30s for most of the area with lower 40s along the coast lows in the mid 20s NE PA to lower to mid 30s along the coast
Sunday the cold front will drop south leading to clearing skies and chilly conditions with highs in the mid 30s NE PA to low 40s along the coast and lows again in the mid 20s NE PA to lower to mid 30s along the coast, the same can be said for Monday with clear skies
Monday night and especially Tuesday will have increasing clouds as our next storm system begins to move in
It appears that a modest low pressure will move into the Great Lakes , then will transfer off the New England coastline as it hits a continued blocking pattern, the associated warm and cold front will come through with moderate to heavy rain and windy conditions Tuesday and Tuesday night with slightly warmer conditions with highs in the low 40s NE PA to upper 40s to low 50s along the coast.
And as a train of disturbances come into the west coast we will see more of the same into the forseeable future, with temperatures overall around to below average with occasional storm systems to track, it appears that the pattern will support storms tracking between the Great Lakes and the Delamrva depending on interaction , each one will have to be watched, the next storm system to watch after this will be the middle and end of next week.
