Weekend Update: Better Than Last

Good morning. The weekend has finally arrived so what will the weather bring? 

We will start off today with cloudy skies but then the sun will start to break through as we get into the afternoon....

It will be a warmer day with highs in the upper 70's.

Saturday looks to be a decent day, although it should be mostly cloudy as a weak cold backdoor front flirts with moving into the area. A stray shower is not out of the question as this moves in. Conditions will stay warm (70's) then temperatures should drop as we head into Sunday morning. Highs on Sunday will be in the 60's with party cloudy skies.

Thats really all there is to talk about. As we enter may Thunderstorm season should start cranking up so we may (ha no pun intended) have some excitement to track.

Monday Weekly Weather Summary: Rough Start, Smooth Finish

Good morning. Well the weekend turned out the opposite as expected. Sunday was the nice day and Saturday was quite dreary. The models did not handle disturbances along the frontal boundaries well at all.

This week starts rocky then really brings in some late spring like warmer weather.

A low pressure system will track up and along the coast tomorrow and part of Wednesday...

This will cause peroids of rain for Tuesday into midday Wednesday. Today will also be mostly cloudy as this system approaches.

Things then clear out nicely for Thursday and Friday with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in high 70s...

I will take a closer look at the weekend later this week, but right now things are looking good.

Friday Weekend Update: Ok is The Word

Good morning. The weekend has finally arrived so the natural question is what will the weather bring? We just had some rain move though the area last night and today will feature clearing with partly cloudy skies. Highs will not get much past the low 60's.

A cold front then sags south across the area tonight..

 This will keep things on the cooler side tomorrow as well with temperatures in the low 60's for highs. I do expect sun to break though tomorrow however.

By Sunday a wave of low pressure rides along the frontal boundary...

This means cloudy skies with showers to the south as seen above.

Overall the best day is Saturday. Sunday will be a hit or miss for many areas.

Enjoy the weekend.

Monday Weekly Weather Summary: Back to Seasonable

Good morning. Well it could not be a nicer Easter weekend than we just had. Temperatures in the 80's yesterday made things feel more like mid June rather than mid April. Temperatures today will also stay more on the warm side with highs in low 70s, but a cold front drops temps for the core of the week.

By tonight you can see the colder air moving in...

This means a cool down for Tuesday and Wednesday with temperatures in the high 50's to low 60's for many spots.

Mostly cloudy skies should be expected Wednesday into Thursday as frontal boundaries bring unsettled weather. By Thursday, showers should move into the area as a low pressure system passes to our north as seen below..

I think the sun then starts to come out again as the day gets underway Friday which should pave the way for a nice seasonable weekend. At this time Saturday and Sunday look to feature mostly sunny skies with temperatures in the low 60's. 

Thats all for now, I will update again as the weekend gets closer.

Easter Weekend Update: Nice Weather Stays Put

Not much to talk about these days weather wise which means excellent conditions prevail. 

Today is a beautiful day with temperatures in the mid 60's. High pressure will be in control which will make for sunny skies.

A warm front then moves into the region tomorrow afternoon. This can cause a few showers to form mainly more to the north as seen below..

Overall nothing to ruin the weekend. The better news is this warm front spikes the temperatures for Easter Sunday. Expect highs in the low 80s for many spots!

Thats all for now, enjoy the weekend!

Monday Morning Weekly Weather Summary: Smooth Sailing

Good morning. Well, there is not much to say for this week other than spring will be in full swing! Temperatures today through Wednesday will range from the high 70's today to low 80's tomorrow.  Things will then moderate a little Wednesday through Friday with temperatures dropping into the 60's for highs. Regardless, it will be a gorgeous week with plenty of sunshine. 

The holiday weekend also looks to be in the clear. Mostly clear skies with temperatures in the mid to high 60's. Can't rule out a stray shower but at this time I wouldn't worry about it.

This is all due to high pressure being in control all week. Notice the placement of the high pressure off shore bringing with it warms winds from the south...

This also will help shield out any rain that tries to move towards the area. A cold front does move in Wednesday, which brings temps down for 2nd half of week but models indicate it will not cause much in the way of rain...

So I think you get the point. We have the nicest week of the year on tap. Enjoy it!

Thursday Update: Here Comes the Rain

Good morning. It will be a soaker today as rounds of showers and storms move through the area...

This will mostly clear out by later tonight but cloudy and unstable conditions will prevail through Friday...

Notice the snow near the Great Lakes and Mountains of NY. This is due to a big cold pool of cold air aloft thanks to an impressive upper level low pressure system..

Things are clear for the weekend but on the chilly side. Highs on Sat will only be in low to mid 50's with warmer air returning for Sunday and especially Monday were we can hit 70!

Enjoy the weekend.

Monday Morning Weekly Weather Summary: Rounds of Rain

Good morning. As we all can see early spring is in full swing and that means a lot of up and down weather. This weekend was a good example of that where we saw heavy rain for most areas but a mountain snowstorm up in New England. Most ski areas got between 10-12 inches, not bad for early April.

Moving on to this week, it will be more ups and downs. 

Today will be nice with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the high 50's to low 60's.

Rain moves in late tonight however...

A low pressure center will pass to our west tomorrow bringing with it rain that is heavy at times. Tuesday is a total washout.

Things will then clear for Wednesday with sunny skies and temperatures in the low 60's. 

This does not last long however as more rain moves into the region Thursday. The Thursday could be quite impressive dropping another 1-2 inches of rain...

We have a low pressure system that will close off in the upper atmosphere. This means the storm is slow moving and the rain lingers keeping things cloudy with showers for Friday. You can see below the closed circulation at 18000 feet in the atmosphere with this system..

You can see even by Friday it is still lingering with showers...

This should clear out by the weekend allowing the skies to break up. Temperatures will be on the chilly side however. I expect this weekend to feature temperatures in the low to mid 50's due to this big low pressure system bringing in winds from the northwest on its departure.  You can see below temperatures at 5000 ft will be below freezing this weekend over the region...

Since we now have a strong spring sun it is much warmer at the surface. Like I said, temperatures will hit the low to mid 50's with cold mornings. 

Thats all for now, we will keep an eye on these storm systems as the week goes on.
