Wet Weather In Store For Tomorrow
A high pressure system will move away from the area tomorrow allowing a weakening low pressure system to ride up the coast and bring us rain showers on and off throughout the day. Models are indicating some cold air damming tomorrow that might keep temperatures cold enough to support snow or freezing rain. Another low pressure system over Wisconsin will move our way for Wednesday which will keep the rain with us. High temperatures tomorrow will be in the 30s to around 40 along the coast.
Big Travel Day For Tomorrow
Tomorrow is a big travel day for a lot of people. The forecast is calling for showers throughout the day for us. Across the nation we will see bad travel for the northeast and the mid-north states with bad travel also down into the southeast. Good travel weather is expected out on the west coast with some bad spots up in Washington state.
Wednesday is looking to be a messy day with rain throughout the day as a low pressure system moves northeast out of Kentucky. Since this low pressure system is to the east of us it will be a mainly rain event. This will help melt the snow which isn’t good for you folks who want a white Christmas. This low pressure system will slide northeast so by Christmas Day we will be left with some scattered snow showers.
Will This Effect My Travel Plans on Wednesday?
Most of the east coast will see poor travel conditions on Christmas Eve. Most of the southwest into the plain states will see good travel conditions. The northwest will see poor travel conditions with another storm system moving into their area.
Christmas Day: Flurries Possible
Christmas day is looking to be a mostly cloudy day as the low pressure system departs to the northeast leaving us with scattered snow flurries. A Northeast wind will be likely that day.
White Christmas Forecast
Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? If you are in the mountains and far north then your dream will be a reality. Not much has changed from Saturday’s posting of this map. We are still expecting the farther north you go the more likely you’re going to have a white Christmas. People along the coast who want a white Christmas, I’m sorry to say that the odds are just not on your side. With a >25% chance of having at least an inch on the ground, this Christmas will be brown.
Next Disturbance On Monday?
Models right now are indicating the threat of seeing a storm Sunday into Monday. It is too far out to give exact timing and event details. Stay tuned to Western Maine Weather For Details on this storm in the coming days.
