Cold Departs Then Roars Back

December 27, 2013; 7:30 AM ET

Friday Morning

Note: I will be out of the office after today until Jan. 2, 2014, so let me take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year. HAPPY NEW YEAR

This video explains how the weather will change during the next week or so... and why those changes area expected.

Winds aloft will become southwesterly over the Eastern states this weekend, causing mild moist air to spread from the Gulf states right up along the East Coast. This means rain on Sunday along the I-95 corridor from Virginia to southern New England. The storm responsible for organizing the rain will then leave, and a major change to colder weather will reach the Northeast Tuesday and Wednesday. This map shows the forecast of the upper air steering currents next Tuesday. If you trace the origin of air that winds up in New York state, you can see it starts out in northern Canada.
