Weekend Warm-Up on the Way

April 10, 2020 // Article by: Mike Priante

Well, after a rather active second half to the week...with severe weather and damaging wind gusts, the upcoming weekend is looking much quieter. We also had Old Man winter return with mixed snow/graupel showers across PA/NJ/NY and much of New England on Friday. Temperatures are expected to rise again toward the end of the weekend. Speaking of temperatures, here is a look at the normal high and low temperatures for this time of the year.  

  Average High Average Low
Boston 54 39
Hartford 59 37
New York 60 43
Philadelphia 62 43
Baltimore 63 41
Washington, D.C 65 46


High pressure will be sliding across the northeast this Saturday and Sunday, bringing lots of sunshine and temperatures reaching closer to what it should be for this time of the year. Mostly highs in the 50s on Saturday, but rising well into the 60s for most of the I-95 Corridor on Sunday. Take a look at modeled temperatures from the GFS for Sunday at 2PM:

Even with temperatures in the 60s on Sunday, that may not be the warmest day yet. In fact, it may rise well into the 70s for many places from D.C to Philly. Unfortunately, this also coincides with our next rain maker. A rather potent storm system will bring periods of rain thunderstorms to the northeast overnight Sunday and into a good portion of the day on Monday. Heavy downpours and rainfall amounts of 1-2" will be possible with this system, along with another threat for damaging wind gusts.
