Simple weather as we start the week leading up to the Labor Day holiday weekend. In a word: nice! No wait, in two words, VERY NICE!
Well we lucked out Monday as high pressure over East Canada kept rain down to our south.
The weather will be pleasant for the next couple of days, with several places in the East getting a much needed opportunity to dry out.
For many locations in the Northeast, its looking more and more like Wednesday will be the last day we can say (with a high level of confidence) that no rain will fall in the big cities and most communities located near the coast.
It’s going to be beautiful before not too long. Even as I write this the winds have shifted out of the northwest. That will be a big dome of high pressure filtering into the mid-Atlantic.
High pressure will slowly drift east over the next 24+ hours and as it moves, we will be on the lookout for a few isolated thunderstorms through Tuesday (mainly north and west of the the metropolitan).
Don’t over think this forecast. It is getting nice. It will stay nice. And that’s nice.
It’s a stalled front, just down to our south, that is the pain in our barometer.
High pressure is moving off the coast into the Atlantic Ocean. Southwest wind will help boost our temperatures up a couple degrees as our temperatures climb.
Friday should be even nicer than Thursday was as a high-pressure system builds into the Eastern region during the next 24 hours.
After a virtually cloudless day Monday, the ridge of high pressure in control of our weather will shift off of the coast Monday night allowing our flow to turn southwesterly by Tuesday.
A cold front over the Great Lakes region will move into our area this afternoon. High pressure will settle in along the eastern seaboard this weekend. A cold front will move through the Mid-Atlantic Monday into Tuesday.
