    Northeaster Next Week?

    Friday 10 a.m.

    A chilly northwesterly flow of basically dry weather will affect the I95 corridor this weekend. As a high pressure area settles over New York and New England on Monday and Tuesday, it will still be chilly, but probably less windy with more sunshine. The ECMWF model is leading the way on predicting a northeaster at midweek with snow in the mountains and rain in the big cities. See it here:

    The European model has a northeaster on the East Coast Wednesday night. The GFS model has the storm offshore. This map shows the European version.


    A personal note: meteorologists are always interested in big storms. However, I never want to root for one or cheer it on. The immense human toll of suffering and disruption of the most basic need to live in safety with enough food and water.. in New York City and surrounding areas... reinforces this.
