WEATHER BLOG: Iffy Saturday
Current surface map shows a low pressure over western Pennsylvania with the back door cold front stretching through central VA down into northwest NC. There is a stationary boundary through the Ohio Valley back into the Central Plains.
A low pressure system moving through the northern plains will bring snow to the mountains in the mountains in MT and temperatures 20-30 degrees below normal! For our region the back door cold front will keep pressing southward as easterly flow will take control of our area. This is going to keep most of NY/PA/MD fairly cloudy with showers mainly this morning west of I-95 and drizzle in the mountains. There could be a few breaks in the clouds this afternoon east of I-95, especially in Northeast NJ and eastern NY. Temperatures are going to run 4-8 degrees below normal. By tonight the dry
air from the high pressure over new England will push into the region allowing for precip to be only in the evening but we will still see a mostly cloudy sky. Tomorrow will be a nicer day in the region as high pressure continues to press to the south over VT/NH. This will allow for a sunny to partly cloudy day with comfortable dew points in the middle 50s.
High temperatures will be several degrees warmer tomorrow than today with the increase in amount of sunshine.
