Spotty Showers This AM. Sun Returns, Spring-like…

 

Synopsis:

A moist Southerly flow ahead of a cool front will cause spotty showers this morning. Any showers will end by mid-day. The cold air is lacking behind the front. Temperatures will feel more like Spring as the sun returns.

A more significant cold front will move toward the area by Thursday morning. Some of the computer models want to develop a wave of low pressure close the the region.  The European map above taken verbatim is the most vigorous of the all the models.  Taken verbatim, rain would go over to a period of snow with some accumulations all the way to the coast (not my forecast at this time, but stay tuned). Rain will develop Thursday morning. It should be cold enough for wet snow to be mix in and then a change to snow for a time, especially inland. A coating of snow is possible North and West of the City by late evening.  Colder weather will move in to end the year.

Today:

Spotty showers through mid-day, becoming mostly sunny. Mild. Highs in the mid to upper 50s. Southwest to Northwest wind at 10-15mph with gusts to 25mph in the afternoon.

Tonight:

Mostly clear.  Lows in the mid 30s in the City, the upper 20s inland. Northwest wind at 10-15mph.

Wednesday:

Sunny with highs in the mid 40s.

Thursday:

Rain mixed with wet snow, especially inland. A period of wet snow is possible later in the afternoon and evening. Highs in the lower 40s.

Friday:

Partly sunny. Colder. Highs in the upper 30s.

Saturday:

Partly sunny. Cold. Highs in the upper 30s

Damp Monday. Areas of Drizzle, Rain. Spotty Freezing Rain N/W…

 

Synopsis:

Spotty drizzle and areas of light rain will develop during the morning hours as a warm front moves toward the region. It should be cold enough well North and West for spotty freezing drizzle or light freezing rain (FutureCast radar above). Icy conditions may develop on untreated surfaces. During the afternoon all areas will be above freezing.  A cool front will move through the region on Tuesday morning. Early rain will end by mid morning. The cold air is lacking behind the front. Temperatures on Tuesday will feel more like Spring.

A more significant cold front will move toward the area by Thursday morning. Some of the computer models want to develop a wave of low pressure close the the region. Rain will develop Thursday morning. It maybe cold enough for wet snow to be mix in, especially inland. It doesn’t look a big deal with accumulations, but well inland a minor amount is possible.  Colder weather will move in to end the year.

Today:

Cloudy. Spotty drizzle or light rain. Inland spotty freezing drizzle or light freezing rain is possible. All areas will go over to liquid during the afternoon. Highs in the 40s. Northeast to Southeast wind at 5-10mph.

Early Snow to Mix to Rain…

 

Synopsis:

Snow will fall early this morning at a good intensity. The cold air wants to stick around as the warm front is having a hard time moving North with the Arctic air in place, for this reason I have upped snow amounts (map above). The snow will go over to rain along the coast and in the City by mid to late morning.  There could be a prolonged period of ice North and West of the City, 1/10″ to 1/4″ of an inch of ice may accumulate.   The precipitation will taper during the early afternoon.

The second punch will be an approaching cold front on Sunday.  A wild temperature swing will occur this weekend.  It’ll be the the tale of two seasons with Winter-like conditions this morning-cold and some snow to Spring-like conditions Sunday morning- temperatures rise into the 50s to near 60º ahead of the front!  Rain and windy conditions are expected Sunday. The arctic front will move in during the afternoon and temperatures will again plummet.  Hang on!

Today:

Snow early, changing to rain along the coast by mid-morning to late morning.  A period of freezing rain is possible inland before the changeover.  Temperatures will rise into the 40s by late day in the City to near 40º inland. Southeast to Southwest wind at 8-12mph.

Tonight:

Cloudy with areas of fog and drizzle. Temperatures will actually rise through the 40s and into the 50s at the coast. Readings will rise through the 30s and into the 40s inland. Southwest wind 8-12mph.

Cloudy, windy and warm with periods of rain developing later in the morning.  Highs well into the 50s to around 60º during the morning. Temperatures will fall into the 30s and 40s during the afternoon.
