A STORMY PATTERN INTO THE NEW YEAR !

Discussion:

An Active and Stormy Pattern will continue to bring bouts of rain and possibly some snow as we head into the New Year. Tonight into much of tomorrow will remain dry, as High Pressure settles into the NE and M/A States. This will be short lives as low pressure will begin to develop over the Southern Plains and Mississippi Valley, later tonight and tomorrow morning. This Low will gather plenty of GOM Moisture and track NNE into the Midwest Later Friday, and into The St Lawrence River Valley on Saturday.

Ahead of this system a South to SW flow, of Milder and moist air, will develop and Cloudiness will increase Friday Afternoon. Rain will overspread the region Friday Evening and continue into Saturday morning. A cold front associated with this storm will move through later Saturday morning and push the clouds and Precipitation out of the area. Some Sunshine will return during the afternoon, as the front clears the Coast, and High Pressure builds in.

Colder and Drier air will return for Saturday Night and Sunday, as this High Pressure moves to New England. During Sunday another storm will begin to take shape along the SE Coast, and move Northeastward. The Delaware Valley will be on the NW fringe of this system and temperatures are expected to be marginal for Rain and or Snow, as the storm approaches Sunday afternoon and Sunday Night. This system will gather quite a bit of moisture, and It's exact track is uncertain at this time. This storm will be of the most interest, as we could get some frozen Precip, especially from PHL North and West. Southern NJ and Northern DE will be a close call, but precip amounts are likely to be greatest in these areas. I'll have more on this threat during Saturday, for any potential Snow, and more on the storm's track, as we near Sunday Night and Monday.

Take Care
