WHEN WILL WE SEE THE SUN AGAIN?… NOT ONE BUT TWO STORMS BRING SNOW TO PARTS OF THE NORTHEASTERN STATES

The weather over the past several days seems more like late November as a deepening trough spawns low pressure systems that have brought a cold rain to the Mid-Atlantic States and snow to the higher elevations of the Northeastern states. This is the earliest significant snowfall ever in some communities of Pa. The coastal areas have been dealing with coastal flooding. Winds haven’t been especially strong here locally, but up north the winds have been stronger. The cool and damp weather should continue most of the weekend, but the models differ in solutions. One model has the a new low developing offshore and it has the low moving very slowly up the coast keeping us socked in with wet weather most of the weekend. Another model clears us out Saturday night. Forecasters are taking a middle of the road approach and forecasting only slow improvement on Sunday. The first round of rain brought my neighborhood 1.25 inches of rain and then another half inch fell on Friday. Next week looks nice once this system departs with temperatures in the lower 70’s and mostly sunny skies. I’ll have an update on Sunday.
