Cooler Weather For Next Few Days
The recent warm weather has retreated south where it will stay for the weekend. Temperatures will be 10-20 degrees below average the next few days. A cold rain will overspread New England tomorrow afternoon and last into the evening. Conditions slowly improve Saturday and by Sunday the sun will be out and temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50's.
The stationary boundary has moved south of New England but temperatures have not responded yet Waves of low pressure continue to move along the front.
The radar is quiet for Southern New England but there is action to the west in PA (weakening) and Western NY
While I cannot rule out a pop up shower or isolated thunder this afternoon, the best chance for precipitation is after 8 PM tonight. Temperatures will only be in the low 50's this afternoon
Meanwhile down in the DC area it will be 90. That is a significant temperature gradient along the east coast. By 8 PM tonight the surface chart is expected to look like this
The stationary boundary will drop even further down the coast. The temperature at midnight is the likely the high temperature for the day tomorrow.
A storm that has produced record snow in SD and tornadoes in MO, AR will be moving into New England tomorrow. Here is the storm on satellite this morning
By tomorrow morning this is what the surface should look like
Here is what the EURO thinks for tomorrow afternoon
Temperatures tomorrow afternoon will be in the mid to upper 30's. The 3 day precipitation forecast
