An area of low pressure has formed in the Northern Gulf of Mexico and that will help to bring us scattered showers today. Most of the rain will be south of the lake during the day. Then a cold front will move in from the north this evening. This will spread scattered showers across the Northshore and then the Southshore. All of the rain looks to come to an end by 10 PM. Then we will become partly cloudy, breezy and much cooler tonight. Lows north of the lake will be in the lower 40s and south of the lake in the upper 40s.
The Gulf Low and cold front will both move to the East Coast on Tuesday. This will pull down cold air from the north, and then SIGNIFICANT snow will form over parts of the Mid-Atlantic to the Northeast. Snow totals will be around 10-14" around NYC to Boston. Inland areas west of there could see 18-24"! If you are planning on traveling to the Northeast Tuesday through Wednesday...FORGET IT!
High pressure will build over us on Tuesday through Thursday with plenty of sunshine. We will have MUCH cooler air in the wake of the cold front too. It will feel like January vs March!! Highs will be in the mid 60s on Tuesday, upper 50s on Wednesday and mid 60s on Thursday. Lows will be colder too as they fall to the 30s north and 40s south Tuesday and Wednesday Nights. Then the 40s north and 50s south Thursday Night.
The area of high pressure moves east of us on Friday, St. Patrick's Day. This will shift the winds from the north to the south, and we will see a warm-up. It will be partly cloudy with highs in the lower 70s.
