Active Weather Continues in the Northeast

March 25, 2020 // Article by: Mike Mihalik

Well the pattern as of late has certainly been active with system after system quickly rolling through the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. It seems that we've only had a day or two of dry time between each rain event. Wednesday was no different as a storm system tracked from Cape Hatteras to well south of Cape Cod. This brought rain to the mid-Atlantic with some rain showers as far north as southern New England. There was even a few wet snowflakes for portions of central PA and the elevations of New England.

Thursday will be much nicer as high pressure slides in, with more sunshine and dry weather. However, it won't last long as a quick moving disturbance brings another shot of light rain Friday morning from PA through NJ and portions of southern New England. This brief shot of rain will exit Friday afternoon as things dry out, but (you guessed it), more rain will arrive on Saturday. There could be enough cold air for a bit of wet snow in the mountains of VT and NH, but that too will change to all rain.

Sunday, the cold front slides through, but it wouldn't be surprising if temperatures surge into the 60s (possibly 70s in MD?) ahead of it. Temperatures will cool back into the 50s for Monday with breezy conditions, but the day looks mainly dry. Tuesday of next week also looks dry, but guess what? That's right, another storm will be gathering to the south.

This storm, however, is not a guarantee just yet as the Euro brings the low north and the GFS supresses the storm south. If the GFS is right, the Northeast may not see much precipitation at all, but if the Euro verifies, a steady rain will push in later Wednesday into Thursday (which would even feature some interior snow). With still a week to go before this system, changes in track are bound to happen. We'll keep you updated right here in our blog and on Facebook/Youtube/Instagram. In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy!
