My Weekend Outlook and some thoughts for next week !

Friday: 1/15/10
6:00 PM Discussion
For The Delaware Valley.

Over the weekend, a storm system now gathering moisture in the GOM, will move NE up the coast on Sunday and into Monday AM. This storm will bring moderate rainfall throughout the Delaware Valley region, from Sunday morning into early Monday morning.

Temperature will be mild on Saturday with partly to mostly sunny skies. High will be in the mid and upper 40's. Saturday night clouds will increase and thicken as our southern storm approaches, but conditions should remain dry for Saturday night. Lows will be in the mid to upper 30's.

Sunday will be a raw & chilly day with rain moving in during the mid morning hours. This rain will become moderate and steady during the afternoon hours. Highs will only reach the upper 30's to lower 40's.

Rain will continue into much of Sunday night and could be moderate to heavy at times. Lows will be in the low to mid 30's. Some sleet, freezing rain, and wet snow could mix in later at night towards RDG and ABE.

For the Pocono's and NW NJ mountains, 1" to 3" of sleet and snow accumulation can be expected Sunday night.

Rain and mixed precip will end during Monday AM, and skies will remain M.Cloudy throughout the day. Highs in the low to mid 40's. Total rainfall amounts of .50" to 1.25" can be expected throughout the Delaware Valley.

Some thoughts for next week: Tuesday: 1/19 through Saturday: 1/23

It looks like near seasonable to slightly above normal temps are on tap for much of the week. Highs will mainly be 40-45, but trending colder towards next weekend. Lows for much of the week will be in the mid 20's to low 30's.

We should ramain dry during the early and middle of the week, but later in the week another storm system will approach from the South and SW. Strong high pressure will setup over the G/L and SE Canada, which will supply some colder air near and just to our north for Thurday through Saturday.

This will make for some interesting weather later in the week, as our storm system approaches during Thursday and Friday. It's too early to say what type of precip will effect our region, but rain/some ice/and some snow are looking like a good bet. As things unfold, I'll have a better idea during the early and middle part of next week, to say where we're going with this event. Until then have a great weekend.
