A VERY Cold President's Day With Mild Rain On The Way For Tuesday!



Good Morning!

Today is a situation of take what you can get, with the trade off being

sunshine for slightly below normal temperatures. With high pressure centered

off the southeastern seaboard ridging north into the Northeast, things look

dry all along the East Coast. Heights will be on the rise as well, but with

flow out of the northwest it looks like most places will fail to reach 40,

except those that manage to benefit the most from the sunshine.


Looking ahead to tomorrow, a storm system developing over the Great Lakes will

bring a significant front towards the region by the afternoon, clouding things

up and eventually bringing rain across the region, as early as mid morning but

as late as afternoon. The consolation prize for the dreary afternoon will be

some milder temperatures after the passage of the storm's warm front. As cold

air rushes in behind the front things should cool considerably towards dusk.

Despite this, precipitation will likely end as rain, with perhaps a little

non-accumulating snow at the very end.


High pressure makes a return midweek, centered over Canada this time and

ridging southward into the northeastern US. Mostly sunny but chilly days are

likely Wednesday and Thursday.


On Friday a weak warm front getting pushed north by the southeast ridge will

bring an increase in clouds and perhaps a little rain or snow, but in general

the system is weak and not well modeled, and Friday may turn out dry. Moving

ahead towards the weekend, an upper trough will move into the northeast and

provide a wide range of scenarios for the coming weekend, ranging from a

coastal storm to a large area of high pressure. The model consensus is pushing

the potential storm far enough off the coast to avert a major snow storm,

however its too far out to make any predictions with confidence.


Have a Great Day!
