(Wednesday, May 6th 2020) We’re in for a showery and cool second half of the week. A few showers develop Wednesday.
Although it’s a slightly warmer day, the unseasonably chilly pattern is not breaking anytime soon.
An area of low pressure is forecast to track up the Mid-Atlantic seaboard Wednesday.
This will be close enough to the Southern Tier to produce some scattered rain showers Wednesday.
At least temperatures should be a touch better with highs in the mid to upper 50s.
Another weak system moves in from the Great Lakes Thursday to give us another chance of rain showers.
But it’s the storm that evolves Friday into Saturday is what is drawing all the attention.
Believe it or not, but the Polar Vortex will be paying the Northeast a visit Mother’s Day weekend.
It will turn even colder with some rain and/or snow developing Friday into Mother’s Day weekend!
At least a minor accumulation of snow is possible Mother’s Day weekend, especially across the higher terrain.
Hopefully we will see some sun anyways for mom Sunday.
Wednesday: Clouds increase with a few mainly rain showers possibly developing later Wednesday afternoon. Highs ranging from the upper 40s to mid 50s.
