    Northeast: Mild and Showery Tomorrow, Then a Fine Weekend

    Thursday morning

    This video shows how the developing Midwest storm will move and when rain and thunderstorms should affect various places. As of late morning, showers and thunderstorms were common from Ohio westward. They are generally moving toward the Northeast. A blizzard will rage across the upper Great Lakes, and gales will whip around the south side of the low pressure center that will be over Lake Superior tomorrow morning. In the I95 corridor, the weekend will feature the finest weather in many weeks.

    Weather systems continue their quick pace. On this map from early this morning, there was a fresh northwesterly flow across New England caused by the storm that went through that area yesterday. Meanwhile, the next storm center was already approaching the western edge of the map. This storm will track well west and north of recent storms, causing the blizzard in the Upper Midwest while sending warmer air up the East Coast.
