Hey everyone. Hope you all had a very relaxing Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
Our pattern is starting to transition toward winter. We are starting to see larger coastal storms (last Tuesday and Wednesday) affecting the Northeast and our high temperatures are starting to stabilize in the 40s. Our weather for the upcoming week is a little odd. Forecast models have been showing a weak low pressure out in the Atlantic, which has the possibility of spinning some precipitation into our area. Any precip that falls will likely be in the form of rain, as the storm will not have enough dynamics to bring in abundant cold air.
On Friday, temperatures will warm up into the upper 50s or low 60s in front of a cold front. After this front moves through, expect temperatures to drop back into the 30s with a few flurries possible next Sunday and Monday.
Long Range Analysis:
In the long-range, I am currently watching a possible coastal storm with snow implications on December 11th-14th. Many of the forecast models have been hinting at a strong low moving near or along the coast around this time frame. Right now, details are unclear including if temperatures will be low enough to support snowfall in the region. Mid-December historically tends to be the beginning of the large snowstorms in the Philadelphia area. As a result, I will be keeping a very keen eye on this system this week and next.
