Thursday 11:15 a.m.
Here is today's video. In addition to showing today's cold front, there is an emphasis on the storm threat for the Northeast Sunday night and Monday. Since that storm is not coming for at least three days, there are many things that can change. In a north to south distance of about 125 miles, storm can cause anything from a foot of snow with temperatures in the 20s to an inch of rain with readings in the 40s. There will be dangerous ice in the transition zone.
This map shows the pressure pattern at 10 a.m. A cold front can be identified by the change in curvature of the isobars. This change is easiest to see nearest the northern and southern ends of the front.
On this radar picture, you can see a line of snow squalls. These are possible from eastern Pennsylvania through New England this afternoon. They don't last long, but historically, this is the kind of setup that causes serious multiple vehicle accidents.
