Saturday Snow and Monday Night Rain

 Saturday across the Mid Atlantic will feature snow north of a Baltimore-Philidelphia- NYC line clearing for Sunday morning with a cooler Sunday for everyone. Our next storm will track throught the Mid Atlantic Sunday night trowing clouds across the Mid Atlantic Sunday ahead of the storm. Monday will feature rain for most of NE with some snow at the onset of precipitation as cold air is firmly in place.

Snow will start to move in tonight and will be over the area by dawn and moving northward through the day. North of Augusta ME will see no accumulations while anywhere north of Portland and south of Agusta will see around 1-3″ and York County will see 3-4″.  Seacoast NH will see 3-5″ and Boston North will see 3-5 due to some sleet possibly mixing in there.6-8″ in northern CT including Hartford and surrounding areas.

Sunday will feature some clouds for the Mid Atlantic out ahead of the next storm that will bring rain for the East Coast starting sunday night and then into monday and monday night lingering into tuesday for northern NE

Snowy stretch ahead for New England while Mid Atlantic Enjoys Mainly Quiet Weather

Overview: Strong low pressure will move swiftly out the mouth of the St Laurence and has already pushed a cold front through overnight. Strong winds will develop behind the front bringing in cold air. Winds will gust to close to 50 mph out of the W or possibly WNW or NW. Tomorrow will feature clouding skies and a lot less wind. Thursday night will bring a clipper system to the area developing a coastal low in the southern Gulf Of Maine. These two systems will bring close to 6″ to the midcoast and Central Maine with 4-5″ along the coastal plain ( the waterline to around 10 miles inland) with 2-4″ in the mountains 3-5 is likely in the far north. Saturday will feature a second clipper system and coastal low so the results will be very similar to that of the Thursday night storm. Monday will feature yet another storm and since the models diverge and the storm is in the long range forecast details are uncertain but we do think that as of right now it looks like a wintry mix along the coast with more snow inland.

 

Details: Winds will pick up as the day goes on peaking at around 9am with 50+ mph gusts and sustained winds peaking at around the same time at 25-30 mph. This wind will bring in colder air and will set the stage for two systems which will affect the area Thursday and Saturday nights.These two systems will bring close to 6″ to the midcoast and Central Maine with 4-5″ along the coastal plain ( the waterline to around 10 miles inland) with 2-4″ in the mountains 3-5 is likely in the far north. After that we will find a quiet and cold end to the weekend. Monday however will be different with temps at the coast in the mid 30s so at this point it looks like a tricky forecast and a mix at the coast.

Mid Atlantic: Windy today but winds will calm as the day goes on and become cooler. This cooler air will set the stage for some flurries for Thursday night although the southern sections will not get too much precipitation in the next week with Thursday and Saturday nights being the only two times precipitation in the southern sections. The northern sections however will get some more prolonged snow showers Thursday and Saturday nights which could leave a coating to an inch on grassy surfaces.

Stay tuned!

Windy tomorrow with snow returning on Thursday night

Overveiw: As we continue to endure some truly terrible ( or awesome for those of you that hate snow) january rain this evening and most of us are wondering where all the snow is. Well it is coming on Thursday night and then possibly saturday as well. But at a price, wind. Winds will blow hard and strong tomorrow out of the W or NW.

Specifics:
Rain will wrap up this evening as low pressure from the great lakes moves northeast out of Lake Huron and up the St. Laurence valley tonight and tomorrow. This low will drag a cold front across the region  starting in the Mid Atlantic with thunderstorms there and then across the NE with some rain showers quickly changing over to snow with the passage of the front. Winds behind the front will blow strong on Wednesday ushering in cold air. This cold air will set the stage for snow on Thursday night with around 3-4″ expected by Friday morning. A clipper system moves in Saturday with snow and possibly a mix along the coast.

Mid Atlantic will be generally the same but but rain in for Thursday night as a low pressure system undergoes cyclogenisis off of Cape Cod late on Thursday. Saturdays system will be too far north to cause more than some patchy clouds and the chance for a shower for the northern sections ( northern NJ and NYC)

Stay tuned !

Wet Tuesday today

Today will feature snow moving through at daybreak with clearing around 10:30 am with more precipitation this evening and tonight in the form of rain as warm air moves in. Highs in NE will be 31 in the north and mountains and close to 50 in southern Connecticut and Rhode Island. 40s in MA and NH with mid 30s in southern ME. Mid Atlantic goes as following: 60s in VA, with 50s and upper 40s elsewhere.

Wet and unsettled beginning to the workweek

As most of us are enjoying the long weekend ( myself included! ) There will be an unsettled beginning to the workweek. A system from the midwest will move in tonight with snow. Warmer air works in at around 9-11 am and we will see a mix with sleet and freezing rain  and eventually rain at the coast and will work inland from there.

Stay tuned!

Cold snap for the long weekend

Saturday 7:00 am EST: With the snowstorm long past we turn our attention to a VERY cold weekend. Today will not be all that bad with highs in the mid 20s from about Augusta east to Port clyde, west to Montpelier VT south to near NYC. 30s can be expected for the Mid Atlantic region with clear skies overhead. Sunday however is the height of the cold snap with highs in the north and mountains reaching only to around +5 with lows approaching -20 in some mountain valleys. Elsewhere in NE highs in the teens north and 20s south. Mid Atlantic will experience the 20s in the north and 30s south.

Stay warm !!

Snowy update

UPDATE: 1:45pm EST curent observations show a bout 4″ have already fallen here in Yarmouth with higher totals WSW of here. Another 4-8″ is expected bringing the forecast totals to a little less than a foot at the coast with higher amounts inland and in the mountains. Temperatures will warm to about 31 before dropping. Tonight will feature freezing rain amounting to around .15-.25″ travel will be tricky if not outright dangerous until around 3:00 tomorrow.

Stay tuned!
