Wednesday January 29 2020

Temps have been chilly, but not cold. As some colder air does arrive, it will help to clear out the stubborn skin. So the trade off for sunshine will be a return to ‘normal’ temperatures. The outlook this weekend still has a coastal storm, just a little closer.  The upper level energy from the Great Lakes is the piece that keeps this system in question. If it arrives sooner, the near miss could end up with some wintry impact. See more below.

Looking Ahead:

The Jet Stream this weekend will bring the needed cold air aloft and trough to support a storm. But the timing is the key.

Here is a snapshot for Saturday night of the jet stream height anomaly at 500mb. That is around 18,000 Ft above the ground.  The Cold Core of the trough is projected to be just west of Cleveland, OH.  The coastal cold air is lagging behind the surface storm.

  • ‘IF’ the Cold Core arrives sooner (and this type of pattern often does), then it will help to pull the coastal storm closer to the coast. That would allow some phasing, and introduce the wintry mix and snow into our region.
  • ‘IF’ that does not time out, then there will be a mix with showers Saturday night as that cold core would arrive by itself.

This is the European ECMWF Model. The coastal Low is trending a little closer to our region. That is the element to watch with each run.

It is all about timing the upper level energy with the coastal Low. Don’t change your plans yet, but keep them under consideration.
