Wednesday, October 26, 2016 - Evening Weather Discussion

A bit of wintry weather in northern locations tomorrow morning...

A disturbance will pass through our area tomorrow, bringing some rain to southern sections and a mixture of precipitation to Northeastern PA, Northwestern NJ, Southeastern NY State, and in Fairfield County, CT tomorrow morning as a disturbance passes through our area, changing to rain.

The only areas I am really at all concerned about right now is Northeastern PA, Northern Orange and Putnam Counties in NY, and in Northern Fairfield County, CT, as temperatures could be close to freezing there tomorrow morning, especially in the highest elevations of the Poconos, where it is possible freezing rain could hold on until early afternoon in the coldest locations.

In the areas that see any wintry precipitation, it should be mostly freezing rain and rain, with very little, if any snow. There could be up to an tenth of an inch of sleet and ice accumulation, mainly in the areas that get below freezing, in the higher elevations of Northeastern PA.

Rain will be what most people will be looking at tomorrow, ending in the evening.  Rainfall amounts should be mainly in the half-inch to inch range. Highs will be mainly in the 40's north of roughly Rt. 80, and in the low to mid 50's roughly south of Rt. 80.

Friday and Saturday should then be nice with just a slight chance of a shower Saturday. Highs will be in the mid 40's to mid 50's Friday and the upper 50's to mid 60's Saturday.

Sunday there will be a good chance of a shower or two with highs in the upper 50's to mid 60's.

Monday through next Thursday should then be nice, with highs in the low to mid 50's Monday, the mid to upper 50's Tuesday, the mid to upper 60's next Wednesday, then the mid to upper 50's next Thursday.

Next Friday will be variably cloudy with a chance of a shower and highs in the 40's.

Next Saturday through Tuesday then look nice at the moment, but there is a chance that a storm could form near the Middle Atlantic Coast at this time and there could be cold air in place, so we will need to keep a close eye on this situation. Highs should be in the 40's, unless a storm develops nearby, then highs could be in the 30's.

Have a wonderful evening and check back in the morning for the latest on the potential for some ice in northern parts of our region tomorrow.
