Wet to Dry in the Northeast

April 8, 2014; 7:08 AM ET

Tuesday morning

The storm that brought substantial rainfall to the Northeast will depart through eastern Canada today, and a high pressure area will take its place. Ahead of the high, tomorrow will be a cool day with northwesterly breezes in New England and the Middle Atlantic states. However, with the high pressure area offshore and another cold front approaching, there will be an increasing southwesterly flow of much warmer air on Thursday. This video shows that sequence of events then proceeds through the coming weekend.

A cold front will approach the I-95 corridor on Thursday night, but computer models show differing ideas on whether it moves right through or instead stalls and prolongs a shower threat into Saturday. It appears the weekend will start on the cool side, but that much warmer air will sweep into the Northeast on Sunday.

However, after the warmup, another cold front will move through the Great Lakes and Northeast with at least some rain. This map contains the forecast for Sunday evening, and includes precipitation predicted for 2 p.m. through 8 p.m. ET.
