WEATHER BLOG: Warming Up!
Clouds streaming into the area this afternoon and they will remain overhead tonight leading to mostly cloudy skies. Temps will be seasonable through tomorrow as these clouds hang around through the morning before giving way to some sunshine. The trend of milder temps will prevail for much of the week as a southwest flow prevails much of the time from Tuesday through Friday. Along with this southwest flow there will be clouds streaming through the region, which keep skies partly to mostly cloudy during this stretch.
A more detailed look shows that an area of low pressure will lift northward along the mid-Atlantic coastline on Monday producing a weak easterly flow. The low is expected to remain offshore with rainfall expected along the coast from the Delmarva through New Jersey during the day and then from Long Island through eastern New England Monday night into Tuesday. This will lead to limited sunshine on Monday and then Tuesday clouds will give way to more sunshine.
High pressure will briefly build overhead on Wednesday bringing the sunniest day of the stretch and also bringing temps above normal. A weak warm front will move through Wednesday night, bringing more clouds and perhaps a shower. These clouds will linger around for Thursday as a fast moving low pressure system approaches from the southwest and brings rain by Thursday afternoon and night. Thursday will be the warmest day of the next five with highs in the upper 50s!
