Models continue to be tricky with the coastal storm into Friday, though one certainty is that we’re expecting everyone to remain dry. Skies will be more on the partly cloudy side tomorrow, with increased cloud cover likely east of I-81, especially into the afternoon. This will give us a range of high temperatures, with lower and middle 60’s west, and upper 50’s to the east. By Friday night, the massive low to our west finally begins to knock on the door, with skies becoming mostly cloudy. We aren’t going to see much from this storm, as the main center stays well to the north. Even still, a cold front will be passing by on Saturday, with just enough lift to give us isolated afternoon showers Saturday.
This front heads out quickly, with another area of weak high pressure setting up into the new week. Both Sunday and Monday will have mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies, with highs in the upper 50’s to lower 60’s and lows in the lower 40’s. A new storm system begins rotating around the overall atmospheric flow on Tuesday, as winds pick up from the southwest for us. This should warm us up a bit, with highs into the middle and upper 60’s before rainfall arrives Tuesday night.
Speaking of that rain, we are looking at our next shot of it on Wednesday. It’s still too far out to be certain, but models are indicating this could be a washout type of day, with fairly persistent rain. However for now, until more consistency shows up, we’ll keep scattered showers for Wednesday, but it’s definitely something to watch. Drying out and becoming much cooler behind this rain next Thursday.
