Let’s pretend yesterday did not happen. Let’s pretend it wasn’t in the 30′s with a 1/4″ inch of accumulating sleet for some. Would you be feeling better about this spring now that we have pretty […]
If you are aching to get out and shovel, you can get started now, but there may be another inch or two by the time it all ends later.
Most roads and pavements will remain wet so traveling will not be an issue today. These morning bands of snow are part of an Arctic front which is breaking down the unseasonal warmth from Friday. Once this front pushes off the coast, we will wait for round #2 to come up the coast. How far this front pushes off shore could help to determine the how close this next storm will track to New England.
Our computer models continue in a westward shift with the track of Tropical Storm this morning. Yesterday, models leaned towards taking the storm into the FL panhandle. Today, they seem to be favoring a track into Louisiana. There is still a great deal of uncertainty with the eventual outcome of landfall…somewhere between Pensacola FL and New Orleans Early Wed AM. How strong? Cat 2 likely. 100+ mph…but could be stronger depending upon the track and the depth of the warm water the storm tracks over. Cat 3 can not be ruled out. Storm Surge will be dependent upon the strength of the storm as seas/waves become bigger with deeper pressure falls and stronger winds. Where ever this storm hits it will come with significant storm surge flooding and damaging winds. All of this happening on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The path into New Orleans is the worst direction a hurricane can take for the city 6 feet under sea level. Levees could be tested again. All we can do is hope for a shift to the East…but then Mobile, Biloxi and Pensacola are the target. Answers to strength, track, surge, impact will come in the coming days. For now…all we can do is monitor.
A more humid feel to the air this weekend with dewpoints climbing back into the mid 60′s after such a nice comfortable week. This weekend will be dominated by a high sitting over the Canadian maritimes wrapping in a light onshore wind.
Skies will become partly sunny this afternoon with light to breezy west winds, highs will climb into the upper 80′s and Lwr 90′s in most areas. Clouds this morning at the beaches will give way to an afternoon haze. Where clouds linger longer, this will help to keep temps mostly in the 80′s.
Gorgeous day in progress with sunshine, lower humidity and a gentle onshore wind. Highs will be climbing into the upper 70′s and Lwr 80′s inland. Beaches will be cooler with temps in the upper 60′s and lwr 70′s
So far this winter most of our snow has been light or has occurred overnight, but this next round of snow will likely be our most substantial plowable snowfall we have seen since the October Nor’easter. Still, this will be no Nor’easter. Not even close.
Morning stratus and low level fog is making for a hazy morning across the region…with more clouds west and southeast. Any Morning clouds will give way to increasing afternoon sunshine. SW winds with warm air aloft, along with hazy sun will allow temps to climb to the mid-upper 80′s inland, mid 80′s coast with 70′s on the Cape.
The main batch of rain moving through this morning will gradually be pushing off the coast this afternoon with rain tapering to showers. Temps will be warming aloft, but remain cool at the ground with breezy SE winds with the falling rain. Highs will remain in the 40′s with a slight moderation by the end of the day with lingering showers, drizzle with highs nearing 50.
