After an extraordinarily warm and summer like first week of August, big changes are occurring as we speak to snap us back into reality, as I like to call it, the winds of change, as a strong cold front that bought and is bringing heavy rain and wind swings through. As expected the severe side to this was not very impressive for our area, there was some isolated wind damage reports and some trees down but nothing that was widespread, there was more in the way of severe reports north of our area.
The summer like air mass is being swept off the coast and will give way to Canadian high pressure by later tonight and tomorrow, we will wake up to mid 40s to upper 40s for most of the area tomorrow morning, lower 50s along the coast which will probably come as a shock to many and highs tomorrow will be in the mid 60s to around 70
For Wednesday we will see lows in the lower to mid 40s for most, and upper 40s to low 50s along the coast and highs in the lower to mid 60s, some upper 60s in urban locations and then Thursday through the weekend we will likely struggle in the upper 50s to mid 60s for highs and lows in the mid 40s to low 50s area wide
There is potential for a coastal low to influence our weather starting Thursday and potentially lasting through the weekend
The remains of post tropical storm Karen are expected to ride along the eastern seaboard and form into a coastal low along our cold front that is coming through today , which is expected to stall offshore, and depending on how close it stalls will depend on how much impact we get from the coastal low as of now from Thursday through at least Saturday is looking cloudy raw and rainy for the area, especially as you get closer to the coast, if the storm impacts to full potential we could see a lot of rain especially along the coast, and if it perhaps tracks a bit farther offshore we would see slightly warmer conditions and a fairly decent weekend
This is something to keep an eye on because it could linger around and lead to a prolonged easterly flow and coastal flooding issues, but we probably wont really have a good idea until Wednesday or so what the impacts, if any from this storm may be
Either way a cold front is expected to come through behind this potential storm system so there could be a brief warm up but this cold front I believe will lead to a very chilly 2nd half to October.
