7:00 AM | *More rain arrives tonight and dampens most of Saturday...sunshine returns on Sunday*

Paul Dorian

Rain will overspread the area tonight as the next storm system arrives from the southern states and the threat for rain will continue well into the day on Saturday. High pressure will build into the area late tomorrow and the weekend promises to close on a pretty sunny note on Sunday, but it will be windy and chilly. Very cold air will push into southeastern Canada and New England on Monday at the same time a strong cold front slowly advances eastward across the Great Lakes. More rain is likely here by late Monday or Monday night, but with the cold air so close by, it wouldn’t be surprising to see some frozen precipitation at the onset; especially, across some of the northern suburbs. A cold shot arrives from the northwest at mid-week.

7:00 AM | *More rain on the way for tomorrow night/Saturday*

Paul Dorian

Weak low pressure will push away from the east coast this morning, but a second and stronger system will follow close behind. Skies should clear this afternoon as high pressure builds eastward and it should remain dry for much of the day on Friday. Later tomorrow night, rain will overspread the area as the next storm system arrives and the threat for rain will continue into Saturday. High pressure returns for the second half of the weekend, but the weather goes downhill on Monday. Very cold air will push into southeastern Canada and New England on Monday at the same time a strong cold front advances eastward across the Great Lakes. More rain is likely here by late Monday or Monday night and it looks like it will continue into Tuesday.

1:10 PM | *2019 to start off much like 2018...on the wet side*

Paul Dorian

2018 turned out to be one of the wettest years ever in many spots across the central and eastern US and, in some areas, it turned out to be the wettest on record.  For example, Washington, D.C. experienced its wettest year ever in 2018 and Philadelphia wound up in 2nd place just a few inches behind 2011.  The first few hours of the 2019 began with some rain in the I-95 corridor and the next few days will feature more rain as tow low pressure systems pull out of the southern states and heads towards the Mid-Atlantic.

7:00 AM | *One low pressure system skirts us late tonight, early Thursday...a second system brigs rain here Friday night, early Saturday*

Paul Dorian

A couple of low pressure systems will come out of the southern states and head our way over the next few days. The first system will skirt the Philly metro region late tonight and early Thursday with some rainfall before it pulls away from the east coast later Thursday. The second and stronger system will impact the Mid-Atlantic with periods of rain on Friday night and early Saturday before it then pulls away from the east seaboard. High pressure dominates the scene later this weekend and early next week before a strong cold front likely arrives on Tuesday with showers.

7:00 AM | *Another rain event on the way that'll dampen New Year's Eve...a mild New Year's Day*

Paul Dorian

The active weather pattern of late will continue for much of this week with a couple of systems that are likely to impact the Mid-Atlantic region. One low pressure area will slide up to our west over the next 12-24 hours and it will generate more rain for the already-waterlogged Mid-Atlantic region. Temperatures today should reach into the upper 40’s as slightly milder air will surge northward on the warm, eastern side of this storm system. High pressure returns into the Mid-Atlantic region for the bulk of Tuesday and Wednesday and temperatures will trend downward. Another low pressure area will intensify over the south-central US later this week and likely head towards the eastern seaboard with more rain or perhaps even some snow.

2:15 PM | *Active weather pattern continues into the new year with two systems to monitor for next week*

Paul Dorian

As the eastern US suffers through yet another soaking rain event to close out this shortened work week, seeds are already being sown for another rain event early next week as this active weather pattern looks like it will continue right into the new year.  Today’s system plunged into the Southwest US earlier this week and is now headed towards the Great Lakes region and well to the west of the I-95 corridor.  Given this well inland track, warmer air has surged northward along the eastern seaboard resulting in plain rain around here and it looks like there may be a repeat performance by the atmosphere early next week. 

On Monday, strong energy in the upper atmosphere will pull out of the Southwest US and head towards the eastern Great Lakes - once again keeping the east coast in the warm sector with plain rain likely from later Monday into early Tuesday.  Colder air will then filter into the Mid-Atlantic region at mid-week at the same time another strong wave of energy drops into the Southwest US.  It is still unclear and many days away, but there is a chance that this system may end up taking more of a southern track late next week which would make it a bit trickier in terms of rain versus snow in the Mid-Atlantic region; however, cold air will likely only be marginal.

7:00 AM | *Turns milder today with periods of rain to close out the week...turns colder this weekend*

Paul Dorian

Low pressure will slide to our west today and head towards the Great Lakes region and the result here will be breezy and milder conditions with periods of rain to close out the work week. Some of the rain can be heavy at times this morning and early afternoon and then it should wind down early tonight as colder, drier air arrives from the northwest. The weekend will turn progressively colder and the next low pressure system in this on-going active weather pattern is likely to stay to our south on Sunday. Yet another storm, however, will likely impact the Mid-Atlantic region from later Monday into early Tuesday with more rain as it too slides up to the west of here. Yet another disturbance will have to be watched later next week as it gathers strength in the Southeast US at the same time colder air heads our way from the Upper Midwest. It is too early to say yet if this mid-week low pressure system will stay to our south or if it can indeed have an impact on the Mid-Atlantic region.

1:55 PM | *Active weather pattern continues right into the new year*

Paul Dorian

Another rain event will get underway later tonight in the Mid-Atlantic region as a strong storm begins to lift northeast from the central Plains towards the Great Lakes.  As the storm moves to the west of here on Friday, warmer air will surge up the Atlantic seaboard and temperatures may reach the 60 degree mark in parts of the I-95 corridor. Another low pressure system threatens for Sunday, but it is likely to stay just to the south of here as we close out the weekend.  Yet another low pressure system will likely impact the Mid-Atlantic region on Monday and Monday night and with an expected track again to the west of here, it is most likely going to result in plain rain.  Finally, by the middle of next week, there will be cold air nudging its way southeastward across the Upper Midwest and Ohio Valley at the same time there will be plenty of moisture in the southeastern US.  It is too early to say if the cold from the northwest and the moisture from the southeast will meet up over the Mid-Atlantic region, but it’ll be something to monitor in coming days as this active pattern continues right into 2019.

7:00 AM | *Another late week rain event...colder this weekend after Friday's warm up*

Paul Dorian

Another late week rain event is on the way for the Mid-Atlantic region. High pressure will push off the coast later today and clouds will increase by early tonight as low pressure pulls out of the central Plains. That low pressure will stay west of here on Friday as it heads for the Great Lakes and the result here will be milder, breezy conditions with periods of rain as we close out the work week. Some of the rain can fall heavily at times late tonight and during Friday morning. It'll gradually turn colder this weekend and another low pressure system is likely to stay to our south on Sunday. However, yet another low pressure system is likely to have an impact here and bring us rain later New Year's Eve (Monday) into early New Year's Day (Tuesday).

7:00 AM | *Spring-like today as major storm continues to impact the region...localized flooding a serious concern*

Paul Dorian

Heavy rain fell in the overnight hours and there will be more significant rainfall today into tonight resulting in the potential for some serious localized flooding issues across eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. Strong low pressure will pull up to our west today and warmer air has surged northward along the eastern seaboard with spring-like temperatures near the 60 degree mark as we begin the day. The threat for rain will continue into the overnight hours as a strong cold front works its way through the region. Colder and drier air will arrive by early Saturday riding in on strong NW winds and Sunday will feature some sunshine to along with cold conditions, but the winds will be far less noticeable. An upper-level disturbance will arrive in the Mid-Atlantic region on Sunday night sparking some snow shower activity and there can be minor accumulations by Monday morning.
