Discussion

The overall weather pattern this week looks quite active as the atmosphere over North America undergoes some significant changes. One storm will ride up the east coast later today bringing rain showers to the metro region, possibly mixed with sleet and/or snow for awhile, and then an even stronger storm will affect the Northeast US and Upper Midwest on Christmas Eve Day (Wednesday) into early Christmas Day. It’ll be turning quite mild ahead of the mid-week storm in the I-95 corridor which will produce rain around here and the rain can be heavy at times. In addition, there may even be some thunderstorm activity associated with this storm on Wednesday; especially, in southern and eastern parts of the Mid-Atlantic region (e.g., Delmarva Peninsula, coastal New Jersey). The winds will be quite strong on Wednesday and those strong winds will continue on the back side of the storm Wednesday night into early Thursday as it turns cooler. While it does turn cooler on Thursday behind the storm, temperatures will generally remain above normal for this time of year during the second half of the week.

2:30 PM | An active weather pattern next week as the upper-air transition continues

Discussion

The upper-level flow over North America is undergoing a significant transition and this will lead to a stormy weather pattern next week in a good portion of the country. One storm will ride up the east coast later Monday into Tuesday likely bringing rains to the I-95 corridor region from DC-to-Philly-to-NYC. There is an outside chance that if the precipitation sneaks in early enough on Monday, there may be a little sleet and/or snow in parts of the Mid-Atlantic region for a brief time. Another storm will pound the western states early next week producing snow in many of the higher elevation locations.

The strongest storm of the week will affect the Upper Midwest, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region on Christmas Eve (Wednesday) and into Christmas Day. The Mid-Atlantic region will be on the warm side of this storm with periods of rain likely on Wednesday possibly heavy at times. There is even the chance for some thunderstorm activity to form on Wednesday; especially, in the southern and eastern portions of the Mid-Atlantic (e.g., Delmarva Peninsula, coastal New Jersey). The winds will become quite strong on Wednesday and they will remain strong on Wednesday night and Thursday following the system. Colder air will move in behind the storm on Wednesday night and Thursday and snow showers are possible in the Mid-Atlantic region to go along with the strong winds. A significant lake-effect snow event is likely in the wake of the storm on Christmas Day in the typical areas just downstream of the Great Lakes (e.g., western NY).

7:00 AM | Weekend looks quiet…next week looks stormy and wet; winds should be quite strong on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

6-Day Forecast

Today

Clouds and limited sunshine, cold, highs not far from 40 degrees

Tonight

Partly cloudy, cold, lows by morning in the mid-to-upper 20’s

Saturday

Partly sunny, cold, upper 30’s

Saturday Night

Mostly cloudy, cold, upper 20’s

Sunday

Becoming partly sunny, cold, near 40 degrees

Monday

Mostly cloudy, cold, PM rain likely, low 40’s

Tuesday

Mostly cloudy, milder, still the chance for some rain, near 50 degrees

Wednesday

Cloudy, becoming windy with periods of rain, heavy at times, mild, low 50’s

Discussion

After another cold day to close out the work week with limited amounts of sunshine, low pressure will pull out of the southern states this weekend and head towards the Mid-Atlantic coastline. This storm will not intensify appreciably as it reaches the east coast and its limited precipitation field will stay to the south and east of the I-95 corridor region.

The overall weather pattern next week looks quite active as the atmosphere over North America undergoes some significant changes. One storm is likely to ride up the east coast later Monday bringing some rain to the I-95 corridor and then another and even stronger storm is likely to affect the Northeast US and Upper Midwest on Christmas Eve (Wednesday). Odds heavily favor rain in the I-95 corridor with the second storm and it could be a very windy and soaking rain event - possibly even including some thunderstorm activity. On the back side of that mid-week storm, it’ll turn colder around here on Wednesday night and Christmas Day with possible snow showers, but the biggest factor of all may very well be the continuing strong winds. The overall weather pattern will likely turn much colder as we approach New Year’s Day.

Discussion

Colder air has returned to the region following the passage of a frontal system early yesterday. Today and Friday will be slightly colder-than-normal in the Mid-Atlantic region, but dry on each day along with limited sunshine. Over the weekend, low pressure will pull out of the southern states and head towards the Mid-Atlantic coastline. It appears that intensification of this system at the coastline will be quite limited and that its precipitation field will generally stay southeast of the I-95 corridor.

The overall weather pattern looks very active next week as the atmosphere over North America undergoes some significant changes. One storm could ride up the east coast on Monday bringing a soaking rain event to the I-95 corridor and then another and even stronger storm is likely to affect the Northeast US and Upper Midwest by Christmas Eve (Wednesday). Odds favor rain in the I-95 corridor with the second storm and it could be another soaking rain event possibly even including some thunderstorm activity. On the back side of that mid-week storm, winds could howl next Wednesday night and again on Christmas Day and there will likely be a significant temperature plunge. The overall pattern looks to get progressively colder as we move from Christmas Day to New Year's Day.
