Stuck In A Moment
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
I touched on this subject last week, storms that can get stuck in one spot for several days (to be fair, high pressure can also get stuck for several days) during the early spring months.....see where I'm going with this? Yup, yet another day with a bunch of clouds, blustery wind and seasonably cool temperatures. It's the same storm that was here much of last week! It's much much weaker but it will be here one last day.
By tomorrow high pressure finally starts to move the storm out of here----only problem is that high pressure actually pushes more clouds into New England---OMG! Indeed, Tuesday will offer another cloudy day, blustery & chilly conditions. Don't curse that high pressure too much....it helps us out by Wednesday-Thursday.
In that time-frame, a powerful storm will be moving through the mid-Atlantic with heavy snow & rain as well as high winds. Normally, these storm like to take a left turn up the east coast but with that high pressure in northern New England not willing to move, the brunt of that midweek storm will get shoved to the south of us. Yay high pressure. We will see some effects though:
*Coastal wind Wednesday-Thursday. Wind gusts 35-45mph likely
*This wind (combined with the ocean) will hammer our beaches for a couple of days---minor coastal flooding is possible at the high tides on Thursday & again on Friday
*Cloudy skies with scattered rain & snow showers on both Wednesday & again on Thursday. At this time, I'm not worried about any accumulating snow from this storm. Stay tuned though!
