I have good news this week!  Finally, the Mid Atlantic and Northeast will get a break from weather impacts this week, after the cold front moves through on Tuesday. 

The system that brought active showers and T-storms to the central part of the country and snow to much of the mountainous regions, is still moving eastward.  Expect showers ahead of the cold front, with a little wintry mix or snow behind the front in some places in the Great Lakes on Monday.  Showers will begin to move into the Mid-Atlantic and  Northeast regions late on Monday and stick around throughout the day on Tuesday.  After Tuesday, the rest of the week looks relatively quiet, giving a break to those affected by Sandy and last week’s Nor’easter.  The next system will begin to move ashore in the West by this weekend, bringing rain showers up and down the West Coast.  

Here are this week’s weather highlights for various regions:

  • Patchy fog, low ceilings, and rain is likely to  impact the Northeast until the cold front passes through Tuesday.  Then, the rest of the week is looking great, with mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the 50s. 
  • For the Southeast & Florida, showers associated with the passing cold front are expected Monday, then periods of showers Wednesday and again Friday night into Saturday.
  • A mix of rain and snow is possible in parts of the Great Lakes area Monday and Monday night.  After Monday, the Midwest & Great Lakes both dry out, and it stays dry throughout the week with high temperatures around 50 degrees.
  • Texas remains dry through the week until about Sunday evening, when a chance for showers returns.
  • Out West, another system will bring showers from the Bay Area northward starting Thursday night into next weekend. Ceilings and patchy fog return to parts of S. California Tuesday night and Wednesday, with isolated showers Thursday.
