GULF OF MEXICO
A glorious day across the region with sunshine, light west winds, lowered humidity and temps warming into the mid-upper 80′s. Just an incredible beach day which could not happen at a better time.
One of the largest tornado outbreaks in recent history occurred this past weekend with close to 200 tornadoes moving from the Plains to the Gulf to the Carolinas.
The weather is extremely quiet and boring through the midweek. Plenty has been discussed about it already. We are going to focus on a late week storm which is showing more and more that this […]
Behind the departing low, some early sunshine this morning, but as the ground warms clouds and the wave passes through expect more clouds to rotate through, as well as the slight risk for a few passing light showers or sprinkles. Behind the short wave, skies should be breaking this afternoon for some increasing sunshine with a breezy west wind. Highs will be in the 40′s in the clouds, Lwr 50′s in the sunshine towards the coastal plain. Most of the sun today will be found in the south…yet most should be clearing as we head towards evening.
Clouds will be on the increase tonight. These clouds will trap in todays warmth. This along with south winds should help to keep temps pleasantly mild through the overnight in the 40′s. Temps will be climbing right back into the 50′s tomorrow as warmer air remains in place along the eastern seaboard ahead our approaching rainfall.
Talk about a Super Sunday! So nice outside. In fact this is the warmest we have been since January 2nd when we reached 51 degrees. Nice to finally thaw a bit. Highs today will climb to 40 to 46 degrees in the sunshine and diminishing wind behind our departing low whose low pressure has dropped down to 981 mb over Nova Scotia.
Clouds rolling through this morning as another shortwave pushes through. Scattered flurries are possible with the passage of an arctic front which will be off the coast this afternoon with clearing skies later in the day. Cold air settles in overnight with lows in the single digits and teens, NW valleys below zero. Arctic sunshine in place for Monday with highs in the teens and Lwr 20′s.
A mix of sun and clouds will fade to increasing clouds as the disturbance moves through. Upper level winds are helping to shear this apart with snow weakening over PA and NY. This disturbance will try to provide a little light snow shower activity and flurries south of the Pike for the mid-late afternoon into the early evening. Not expecting much more than a coating to 1″ in places especially in CT, RI and Southeast MA…if at all as most of the snow will fall apart and stay away.
Just like in a basketball game, suddenly this winter has gone on the offensive and is going into a full court press. You may not know it yet..but the weather is starting to line up for plenty of cold with the chance for a few snowstorms before the month is through.
At this point there are still more questions than answers in regards to the upcoming storm. We are still playing a game of “Wait and See”. Not just what the models are going to say..but also how the actual weather is going to behave.
