A chilly, windy day can be expected with scattered clouds and generally dry conditions through this evening. While high pressure will be in control, keeping the snow showers at bay for today, winds will be from the northwest at 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph at times. Meanwhile, temperatures will struggle in the mid 20′s to lower 30′s for highs. The combination of these cold temperatures with windy conditions will lead to wind chills in the teens through the day.
A series of clippers will move through the Philadelphia and New York City metropolitan areas tomorrow morning and again on Wednesday morning with scattered snow showers and periods of light snow. At this time, only a coating to two inches of snow is expected with each passing clipper. There is potential for one of these clippers to produce a period of moderate snow that could push snowfall totals higher, however at this time the low pressure systems are expected to be progressive enough to not have this be an issue. High temperatures through the period will range from the mid 30′s to lower 40′s on Tuesday and upper 30′s to mid 40′s on Wednesday. Low temperatures will range from the upper 10′s to mid 20′s.
High pressure will briefly remain in control Wednesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon with scattered clouds and moderating temperatures. An area of low pressure will lift from the Gulf Coast up through the Philadelphia and New York City metropolitan areas on Thursday evening through Friday with periods of snow, sleet, and rain. Over the interior the snow will mix over to ice and finally ending as rain. However, along the coast the snow will rapidly change over to rain. Low temperatures will range from the mid 20′s to lower 30′s on Wednesday, upper 10′s to mid 20′s on Thursday, and upper 20′s to lower 30′s on Friday. High temperatures will range from the upper 30′s to mid 40′s throughout the region.
High pressure will be in control for Saturday and Sunday with excellent weather conditions for the weekend. Temperatures will be near normal with lows in the mid 20′s to lower 30′s and highs in the upper 30′s to lower 40′s.
