Tropical Storm Colin Over Atlantic, Local Showers And Much Cooler

Tropical Storm Colin Over Atlantic, Local Showers And Much Cooler

Screen Shot2016-06-07 05_59_08Tuesday June 7 – Tropical Storm Colin barreled across northern Florida overnight and is already over the Atlantic Ocean. This was a storm in a strengthening phase so the max potential hit the sunshine state. Now rain, wind, and high surf is hitting the southeast coastline. This thing is racing now at a forward speed of 31 mph. So while it is less than 90 miles way from Charleston, SC it will speed away. This will stay over the water but will have an indirect impact on our weather.  Top wind speeds are 50 mph, but the forward speed it what I believe is impacting the east more as it is allowing the northern system affecting us to speed up and pull in colder air behind it. So as school ends this week in southern PA, it won’t feel much like summer weather.

Here a look at showers developing across central Maryland today that some models have had trouble seeing. Should this line form, it will reach Washington, Baltimore, and Annapolis early afternoon.

Back To Colin and our next cold front

The forward speed of TS Colin moves it into the north central Atlantic over the next 5 days. But this allows for the Canadian chilly air mass to push farther south behind it.

Chilly Days Ahead (By June Standards)

The upper level pattern will bring in well below average temperatures as highs stay in the 70s and low temps will drop into the 40s inland and lower 50s near the cities and the Bay.
