System out west will head east and produce wet weather in center nation midweek...then to the East Coast late week.
A small low moving across the Great Lakes will bring some light rain a/o wet snow to Northeast later today and tonight.
System out west will head east and produce wet weather in center nation midweek...then to the East Coast late week.
Map above is for this evening. Small low along mid Atlantic coast with rain and snow there. Rain splattered across the So. Plains and Gulf States. System in Northwest is the next weather maker as described above.
Map for Easter Sunday. Mainly fair and dry for much of The Nation. Showers and storms in lower Mississippi Valley, rain in the Pacific Northwest.
These are the afternoon temperatures expected for Easter Sunday. Later this week...we will show the morning temperatures for those attending religious services. BE safe.
A front moving across the Northeast will produce some light rain and snowshowers today. Another system now in the Northern Rockies will speed east and bring the Great Lakes and Northeast some rain and snow Tuesday nite.
Map is for this evening...showing one front moving off the northeast coast. Another one over the Gt. Lks will bring some rain and snowshowers there and to the Northeast Tuesday. System off the west coast will bring widespread rain and storms to center nation Thursday...east coast Friday and Saturday.
Map above is for Friday evening. Front extends down thruu the Northeast into Gulf States. It should clear the coast on Saturday.
Above...what map should look like come Easter Sunday.
With the exception of the Northwest...where rain and some snow is likely....much of the nation will be fair. Showers are possible in so. Florida.
Above...map showing what afternoon temperatures should be like on Easter Sunday afternoon. Of course..the coolest temperatures still found in Gt. Lakes and Northeast...hope this pattern holds in July and August. Be safe.
Jet Stream is seen dropping down the Rockies and then turning up the east coast. Cold dry air Midwest...moving east and even some of it reaching Florida. Record setting warmth out west.
Map above is for Saturday. High over Ohio Valley means dry and chilly for The East.....with some snowshowers across the Northeast. Rain with a front over Northern Plains and Rockies.
This map shows how daytime temperatures will average over the next 3- 7 days. Blue is below the average normal...red is above. You can see that much of the nation is finally getting warmer.
Below...you will find 3 models depicting what they think the weather map will look like for next Easter weekend. The first map is the GFS Model who wants to bring a big storm to the northeast. Next model is the Canadian...who brings a storm to Northeast but not as big. Lastly...The Euro Model who doesn't bring a storm but a front with some rain and wind. Have no idea who will be right....so we will track it and keep you posted. Have a nice weekend.
Cold front moving through Ohio Valley with rain and thunderstorms. Hot and dry west coast.
There is a slight risk of some gusty storms today from coastal N.Carolina to coastal New Jersey.
Early morning radar showing rain and thunder in Ohio Valley moving northeast.
Tonight's map showing cold front along the East Coast.
Another cold high north of The Dakotas....while fair and warm weather coats the west. Don't see this pattern changing much thru the weekend. Stay safe.
Satellite shows a swath of moisture - rain - moving through the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes and into Northeast tomorrow. Colder air with some snow in Dakotas. Fair and warm in the south.
Today's outlook for severe weather....mainly Oklahoma and into Arkansas.
These are projected highs for this Saturday. Now look below for next Wednesday...notice the warm up.
Below...upper air map for next Wednesday. The ridge out west means warm there....the trof in the East...mean cool there....and this is for the last day of MARCH. So where is the Lamb....out west,,,,where is the Lion ...(cub) East.
Satellite shows areas of moisture from west coast to the Plains. This will head east and bring mainly rain to the East.
There is also the threat of severe thunderstorms.....in mid section of the nation.
Map is for late today...and you can see all of the unsettled weather out west....heading eastbound. The South and East for now is quiet.
Above - amounts of rain Thursday and Thursday nite.
Northeast sees 1/2" to 1.00" of rain...likely to cause flooding in New England with snow melt.
Severe weather threat for Wednesday. Strongest threat is over Oklahoma.
Here is where we put the Euro model to the test. Map above is for next Thursday.....just before Good Friday. Model forms an intense storm in southeast which would have to work up the coast . Let's see how accurate this model can be 10 days out ? (Personally...don't think it will be there....but maybe offshore ). Be safe.
After a little light snow in Chicago...much of the Eastern half of the Nation will be fiar but chilly. Showers are likely over Florida. Storminess will continue from West Coast to Northern Rockies. Southwest and south - fair and warm.
Areas of moisture will plague the nation. Showers over Florida....some snow Midwest. Widespread rain and snow in Pacific Northwest.
Amounts of rain mid week. Some of this could fall as snow...but most if not all will be rain.
Warmest day of the week this week for a good part of the Nation - Thursday.
Expected daytime temperatures late March thru April 5, 2015. Blue - below the norm......Red above the norm......so Easter Bunny needs to wear a coat in the East. Be safe..
Stream of moisture seen from Texas to The Northeast. This will produce several inches of snow in Northeast today including NYC.
Map above for Friday afternoon showing a low off the N.Carolina coast. This system will bring the snow to the Northeast and parts of Mid Atlantic....2"-4" on average....while rain continues across the south. Cold front in upper Midwest will reenforce cold air for Norther-tier this weekend into early next week.
This map shows where the best probability of snow is today across the Nation.
This is an upper air map for mid part of next week. The ridge along the west coast will bring unseasonably warm weather there...parts of so. California could go to 90. The trof over the Great Lakes will bring some brief milding to the east before cooling off late next week. Spring arrives in the east at 6:45 tonight....hope it bring warmth to color to all and have a safe one.
Strong jet and disturbance moving across Tennessee Valley will cause a swath of snow from Central Appalachians to So. New England Friday. It could drop 2"-4"....from Philadelphia to NYC. Less amounts to the north...and a chilly rain to the south.
Map above is for Friday morning. Low in Ohio Valley moves east with the snow as mentioned above. The wave train in the south stays south. Cold front in the North drops south to keep the Eastern half of the Nation submerged in cold air as Spring comes in Friday evening.
GFS Model above for Friday evening which look similar to The Euro Model. The storm is just far enough south and east to give NYC and southern most New England marginally heavy snow of 4" or even a bit more. Should a burst of heavy snow take place...would not be surprised to see some 5"- or 6" amounts. So much for Spring. All good things come to people who wait...and wait. Be safe.
You need not be a scientist to see a storm swirling in Texas. This system will make it to mid Atlantic coast Friday and likely bring snow a/o wintry mix to Mid Atlantic and Northeast. Several inches are likely especially in the higher elevations but even the coast will likely get white. All of this as Spring arrives at 6:45pm Friday.
Morning temperatures show how things have cooled down...and that's where trouble comes in with the above mentioned storm.
This is The Euro's prediction for Friday evening. You can see the red "L" off Virginia. Moderate precipitation falling to the north and to the north of the pink line it is snow.
This is the Japan Model for same time as Euro...and it's placement for the low..almost exactly the same.
Above 2 maps show how temperatures will average from March 23 to March 31st......looks just like this past winter.
Above...GFS - for beginning of April....far out...but it has been good on trends and this trend is scary. Notice the
"H" in Northwest Canada. That's arctic air. To most of you the dashed blue lines mean nothing...but they are called "thickness lines" and represent the temperature of the air.
The closer these lines the more significant cold or hot....in this case...it's cold. It only seems likely that this air mass will find it's way into The U.S. early April. For now...stay safe .
If you follow the moisture from the northeast west across the Great Lakes to Rockies....that's a cold front which will return winter to Northern-tier. Moisture coming out of Mexico could be a key player in Northeast this Friday for possible snow.
Early a.m. temperatures show the colder air over The Plains - all headed eastbound.
This map is for Wednesday. Notice the storms from The Rockies to Texas. If they separate...the south will get most of the moisture...if they team up....wintry weather could come to Mid Atlantic and Northeast on Friday.
Above...Japan model showing a storm south of Nova Scotia with snow over the Northeast....reason....look at map below.
Again...Japan model 500 Mb upper flow shows northern trof digging negatively and resulting in coastal low being closer to the coast. Euro is getting close to this while The Canadian wants to bring mainly rain. Anyhow...below...chart showing how daytime temperatures will average over the next 7 days. Blue- below normal...red - above.....look familiar - of course...just like this winter. Be safe and have a happy St. Patrick's Day.
Boston , Mass., breaks all time season snow record with over 108"....old record 107" in 1852. Congratulations.
Look off Maine...that's the storm that brought over 40 mph winds yesterday to the NE. Moisture belt from Pacific moving across the Northern Plains. Moisture over southern Plains.
Map above for Tuesday a.m. - Shamrocks will be wet across The Northeast...windy as well. Wet weather from the Northwest to Northern Rockies and parts of Texas.
Map above is for the next 11 days. Upper air....showing how the pressure pattern will align. Green dashes indicate below normal heights or pressure...indicating cooler than normal....(Gt.lks and East)......while red lines above normal...warmer than normal West. So pattern is snapping back to what it was like this winter. Enjoy your Monday and be safe.
Satellite shows moisture streaming out of Gulf to bring mainly rain to the east this weekend: exception Northern-most New England....where locally heavy snow will fall.
Early morning radar showing rain moving out of Gulf and into Ohio Valley.
Map above is valid for Saturday evening. Storm moving through the Northeast...rain and snow move out. Rain in Pacific Northwest otherwise windy and mild for Plains and Rockies.
Map above is for Tuesday...St. Patrick's Day. Snowshowers over the Northeast...windy and chilly. Some rain over western Texas. Elsewhere...basically dry. Have a nice and safe weekend.
Weather map above is for Thursday evening. High pressure over New York is bringing dry but chilly air to Northeast. Low is Gulf States will head north and bring rain to much of the Eastern third of the Nation Friday/Saturday. It will then team up with low in Dakotas to bring some chilly air to Northeast by late weekend.
Satellite shows some heavy convection in the Gulf ( yellow and oranges). That heavy rain will affect the south today and then the East this weekend.
Above... amounts of rain for this weekend. Blue = 1" and that extends from Ohio Valley to Southern New England.
More heavy rain for the Pacific Northwest.
The stream of moisture coming out of the Gulf will plague the southeast but return to much of the Eastern third of the Nation this weekend with more rain...some wintry mix far north. System along the west coast will weaken and move east next week.
Map is valid for this evening. Unsettled weather in the southeast....and out west.
Amount of rain expected this weekend. Heaviest - Northeast and Northwest and southern most Texas.
Above...Canadian and Euro models both showing colder air for Northeast late next week. Euro indicating more in the way of "blocking" and this could result in a set back to spring weather especially in the Northeast. For now...enjoy the mild weather. Be safe.
A wavy front from Gulf States to Mid Atlantic will result in wet weather as far north as Southern New England tonight.
Another front over the Great Lakes will gradually bring in colder air for late week across the East.
Satellite picture shows that rain pushing north across Ohio Valley....otherwise that's it for now.
Map above is for this Saturday. Complex low in The East will bring more wet weather there...with wintry mix across New England.
Amount of liquid with weekend system in the east. Blue = 1.00"....melting snow and some flooding....while northern half of New England could see several inches of snow.
Canadian model for next Tuesday/Wednesday (St. Patrick's Day) shows a shot of cold windy weather in Northeast. Unfortunately...(below) so does The Euro. Be safe.
Satellite picture shows upper low over Baja California sending a plume of moisture thru Texas to Mid Atlantic in form of rain. Chill air over the north will continue to moderate most of the week.
Disturbance over Texas will send some rain toward NYC late Tuesday and Wednesday...but any heavy rain stays south over The SE. Rest of the nation...quiet and almost springlike.
Above...Japan Model for this Saturday. One low in Ohio...another off the Virginia coast. The 2 combine to produce a swath of rain for The East....with snow confined to Northern New England.
Map above shows amounts of moisture with the next weekend storm...and that's only for starters.
This is the upper flow for this coming weekend. It's a split flow....ridge over the Upper Midwest which will keep enough cold air over New England to raise the snow possibility. Trof over Southern Plains which will bring moisture up from the Gulf Of Mexico.
These are high temperatures expected 1 week from now. Notice almost all of the nation above freezing....tans and browns are 50's.....a sign of spring. Until then...be safe.
Satellite shows front offshore but hanging back over Florida and The Gulf. It will cause wet weather there in the next few days. Weak fronts moving across The Gt Lakes will produce clouds from time to time otherwise - quiet.
Map above is for Saturday evening. Notice...not much precip. Anything outlined in green is simply scattered and chance of....so take advantage and enjoy while you can.
Above...Japan Model for next Tuesday. Rain from Carolinas to Gulf. Rain approaching West Coast. Most other places...quiet. We do see the return to colder air over The East late next week and by mid month expect wintry weather to return to The East. Until then...consider this the January Thaw. Be safe.
The plume of moisture from Texas to New England will run up over cold air on the ground and produce heavy snow today from NYC to Washington DC & Baltimore. Quiet weather is back of this system for a while.
Early morning radar coinciding with satellite picture above.
Early morning temperatures showing cold wave moving into The East.
Daytime high temperatures expected next Wednesday....finally looking more like spring.....even summer in the south.
Upper air flow and jet stream for next Thursday. The presence of a strong ridge is absent....so cold air will not be as notable or prevalent. This should lead for more seasonable weather next week. Until then...be safe.
Satellite shows a band of moisture from Texas to Northeast. That will translate to heavy snow from southern New England to Mid Atlantic tonight and Thursday which will total anywhere from 4" to 10".
This radar coincides with the satellite...showing the moisture which is falling with this front.
Now when you add the surface weather map features you can see how clear the pattern is. Once the front moves south...it turns colder by Friday but dry. Moderating temps are expected this weekend.
These are expected high temperatures for 1 week from today......next Wednesday. Nice to see the absence of cold air.....perhaps a sign of more springlike conditions. We can only hope. Be safe.
Satellite shows low off So. California spinning moisture northeast. That combined with colder air flowing south out of Canada will bring more wintry woes from Midwest to East. Many places from Mid Atlantic and Southern New England will see 6-10" of snow by Thursday.
Above...map for this evening....large area of wintry mix from
Northeast to Mid Atlantic. Cold air over the plains. Below...radar from early morning.
Map for Thursday showing cold front slowly sinking south..with a band of moderate to heavy snow for Southern New England thru the MidAtlantic. Below...high temperatures expected for next Monday.....could that be a sign of this pattern breaking up. Let's hope. Be safe.
Satellite shows the latest winter storm moving out of the Northeast. Powerful upper trough over the west coast will send a belt of moisture eastward as conveyed by the blues in the southwest. This system will first bring snow changing to sleet and rain across The Nation Tuesday into Wednesday....followed by more snow from Ohio Valley to Northeast Thursday.
Map above is valid for early Tuesday evening. Western third of the nation...quiet. Rockies and Plains...fair - cold. Warm front over Ohio brings snow/ sleet then rain to East. Cold front over the Midwest will bring snow...to Ohio Valley on east by Thursday and it could be quite heavy.
Click on image to enlarge....as above map shows temps at 4am this a.m.
Above map is The Euro Models' forecast of snowfall from Wed. nite into Thursday. Anywhere from 1/2 to 1 foot from
Ohio Valley to Southern New England. Think it's a bit high...but this front is loaded with Gulf moisture...so it could easily wind up as a big snow.....stay tuned. Be safe.
We'll have daily weather discussions, talking about major systems on the horizon along with anything noteworthy that pops up on our radar.
