WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Continued Cold with Some Flurries Possible For Saturday Afternoon into Sunday AM.

Discussion:
Saturday AM
1/26/08

A storm system now developing along the SE US Coast, will round the bend, then move NNE, and begin deepening off the M/A and New England Coast's, for both Saturday Night and Sunday. During the same time frame, a weak area of low pressure will also be moving across the Great Lakes Region and the Ohio Valley. This weaker system will eventually merge with the Coastal System, during Saturday Night.

The combination of both these systems, and High Pressure situated off the Northern New England Coast, will allow for a NE flow of cold and moist air, to filter into the region, later this weekend. Skies will become Cloudy on Saturday, due to this NE Fetch, and continue mainly Cloudy into much of Sunday. If enough moisture is induced with this NE flow, or the storm tracks closer to the coast, many areas especially East of PHL, could be looking at few periods of Light Snow and flurries during Saturday Afternoon into early Sunday morning. Temperatures over the Weekend will remain Chilly. At this time I don't see this being a big snow event or threat. At best, a few areas could see a light coating of snow, mainly during Saturday Night.

My Forecast:
SE PA, Southern/Central NJ, and DE.
