A developing storm is moving into Ontario this evening spreading rain across the eastern seaboard. A line of severe storm reaches from the Adirondack mountains to Cape Hatters and beyond to the northern Bahamas. Winds will be gusty with 30 mph winds across most areas with winds up to 70 mph in severe thunderstorms. 40-50 mph winds will be common along Cape Cod, Coastal ME and Long Island. 1-5+ inches of rain will be common with highest totals in the Adirondack Mountains.
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.
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 !
