Stormteam Forecast

More of the same Wednesday for the Southern Tier and Northeast Pennsylvania. There will be more clouds, areas of rain and the continuation of the cool weather. This unpleasant pattern will last through the end of the week.

Here are the weather headlines:

• Occasional rain will plague us through the end of the week
• You won’t need the sunglasses the next couple of days.
• A storm system stalled off the East Coast is responsible for our cloudy, damp weather.
• The coastal system departs Friday night but a new system brings additional showers over the weekend.

A developing storm (low pressure down at the ground and aloft) has reached the East Coast Wednesday morning and is becoming ‘cut-off’ from the rest of the jet stream flow. This storm will begin to strengthen through the middle of the week, turning into an early season Nor’easter. It will continue to slowly track north and strengthen through Friday. As it does so, it will send waves of rain westward from off the Atlantic Ocean into the Southern Tier.

The stagnant weather pattern won’t break down until the very end of the week. When that happens, systems will finally be on the move. Low pressure along the coast will be ‘kicked out’ into the Atlantic Ocean.

Unfortunately, as this coastal system heads away from us a brand new system will dive southeast out of Canada toward the Northeast. This system is moving farther south than we were thinking earlier in the week. That’s why we’ve added a few afternoon showers for Saturday. Behind Saturday’s system there is a brief reinforcing shot of cool air that will drop over us Sunday. That cooler air should spark a few additional showers, partly due to Lake Ontario.

Sunday’s cool air won’t last long. There are strong signs from our computer models that milder air is headed our way early next week.
