The video explores how the weather should unfold this weekend and early next week. While longer-range models show cold air building in Canada and moving south later next week, no snow or freezing weather is in the forecast for the Northeast for the next 10 days.
Nadine has been a fixture over various parts of the open Atlantic for weeks now, and it is likely to still be on the map at the start of October.
Note how the satellite coverage ends over the eastern Atlantic. The satellite that had monitored much of the U.S. and Atlantic Ocean malfunctioned earlier this week. The geostationary satellite that had been monitoring the western U.S. and the Pacific was moved east to make up for some of the lost coverage, but you can see the eastern edge of its picture taking ability from its newest location.
The cold front that will cut off the heat will generate strong gusty thunderstorms as it moves southeastward today. The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center highlights the most likely area for these severe thunderstorms today and tonight.
As the high pressure area in the Northeast moves away, the the southwesterly flow pattern will shift eastward. This means Wednesday could be the hottest day of the week from D.C. to Boston. A cold front will follow.
This is a satellite picture showing rather tame conditions off the South Atlantic coast at 7:45 AM ET today. The area is being watched for any signs of storm development.
When looked at this way, you can see two distinct flows in the East: one from the south with moisture, and one from the west that is dry. There is a problem, however: the model solutions evolve over time, and as we get closer to next Monday afternoon (the time the forecast maps are using), the lines and orientations will probably change.
July is national blueberry month, but why not talk about other fruits or even vegetables? In the weather business, every month represents a time when we have to break through any salad bars to understanding the weather. Kumkwat may, we want your visits to the garden of AccuWeather.com to be fruitful.
This map shows the scenario of hot air spreading across the northern Plains and north of the Great Lakes, while a pocket of cool air aloft gets stranded over the Middle Atlantic region.
