As the start to the holiday weekend has arrived, likely everyone, or close to everyone has done most of their traveling by now. I know that no one wants to face the upcoming travel rush back home, but it will happen and here is a daily forecast for the busy travel days.
Any regions I have left unexplained have sunny weather.
Sunday: PM snow showers for the Northeast U.S. snow and rain for the Northwest U.S. Rain for the south.
Monday: Few snow showers across the interior Northeast. Rain for the mid atlantic. Showers for the Northwest.
Tuesday: Rain and snow for the Northeast. Rainy/snowy Northwest. Snowy upper rockies.
Wednesday: Snow for New England. Snowy High Plains. Windy Southern wyoming. Rainy/snowy Northwest.
Thursday: Snowy great lakes Stormy Northwest windy Southern Wyoming
Stay tuned as we continue to fine tune the forecasts for this active weather pattern.
As I write this, the snow/rain line is bouncing around. It is frusterating to watch the rain.snow line retreating a few miles up the coast, and have it advancing on me. Snow/rain will wrap up around noon today with flurries and showers remaining this afternoon.
5 day forecast as of 6:15 am Friday
Tonight: Few snow showers with temps in the teens.
Saturday: Partly cloudy with highs in the 20s and lows around 10
Christmas: Mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 30s and lows in the lower 20s
Monday: Rain and snow showers with highs in the low to mid 30s and lows in the mid 20s
Tuesday: Mix of sun and clouds with highs in the upper 30s and lows in the upper 20s
Wednesday: sun mixed with a few clouds with highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s
As we look ahead into the 7 day forecast, it looks like a quiet week leading up to NewYears day. Exept, for Friday, when a storm system passes off to the south. This should bring 1-3″ of snow for much of the area. Saturday looks quiet and cool with temps topping out near 30. Also there is a possible storm for wendsday.
We are tracking a snowy end to the workweek for much of New England and upstate New York. Snow will move in tonight and will continue falling through the day friday. Snow may mix in with sleet or even rain along the extreme coast (eg. islands and tips of peninsulas) and that could hold down total accumulations there.
1-3″ along the coast inland to around Fryburg, North to around Agusta, South to Rhode Island, and Northeast to Mount Desert Island. Areas within a 30 mile radius of that should expect a coating to around 2″.
Temps will rise to around the freezing mark on Friday at the coast. Highs in the 20’s inland.
