WEATHER BLOG: Warm Week Ahead
On the weather map, low pressure continues to sit and spin over southeast Canada circulating cool air across the Northeast early Sunday morning. Moisture associated with the low is bringing plenty of cloud cover and spotty showers of rain (and a bit of wet snow to the mountains of New England) to areas north of I-80. All the showers and clouds are well north of the region.
There will be plentiful sunshine as the low moves into Quebec and high pressure reaches the Middle Atlantic Coast. Winds will be a tad gusty from the northwest into early Sunday afternoon as temps peak near 65. The high will retreat off the coast Monday night and Monday while at the same time a jet stream disturbance and accompanying low pressure center moves from the central Gulf Coast to off the Carolina coast on Monday. Although the low should be too far south to bring the area steady rain, it will bring ample clouds and a spotty shower or two. Onshore winds from off the chilly Atlantic will keep conditions cool on Monday for those traveling to the Atlantic Coast. Milder air should arrive on Tuesday as winds turn more southwesterly ahead of an approaching cold front. The aforementioned cold front will wash out near the region on Wednesday. Despite the proximity of the front, a large high pressure system building in the upper atmosphere over the East Coast will probably keep conditions dry and partly cloudy on Wednesday, though we can’t rule out a shower.
