Time to retire the shorts?
With near 70 degree weather the past two days, it seems like the above-average warm temperatures are gone till the spring. There’s even a small chance of a Nor’easter after this weekend! Read more after the pic.
An area of low pressure set to develop along a stalled frontal boundary currently draped over central Florida is being closely monitored for what weather it will bring the Northeast as the workweek gets underway. The low will form offshore of the Southeast on Sunday, spreading some rain over the Coastal Plain of the Carolinas with just some showers extending into northern Florida. As the low tracks northeastward, rain will move farther up the coast Sunday night, wetting much of the mid-Atlantic shore with a mixture of snow and rain near New York City and southern New England. The low will continue to intensify through Monday; snow, with rain also right at the coast, looks to brush eastern New England as a cold wind howls.
The current forecasted track keeps the brunt of the storm offshore with Cape Cod feeling the worst of the storm with a few inches of snow and gusty winds. Keep checking back with AccuWeather.com for the latest on this storm as the slightest shift in its track will drastically change the forecasts for the “Big Cities” of the Northeast. Presently, Philadelphia and New York City only look to receive a bit of rain and snow from this storm; however, if the system steers closer to the coast, the storm could turn into a classic nor’easter with higher snowfall amounts farther inland. On the other hand, a more eastward track could keep these cities dry.
