Interesting day today, I’m going to have to tighten my weather predicting pants:
A strong cold front is blowing through the NE today, with drastically cooler temps and wind behind it. The front itself hasn’t had much moisture to work with, so the rain is light in NY state and PA, down through the Carolinas and GA. It’s about to get some help in that department though, with Tropical Storm Sean pumping in the juice from the south. Rain totals will start picking up over Eastern New England today. I’m looking at about 1-2” over the next 24 hours.
The dense fog is back ahead of the front from the Carolinas to the NE. I’ve already seen delays of over an hour in the NYC metro airports and more will see that around the area. I’ll have those updates for you.
The cold air is swinging to the NW around the Great Lakes producing much cooler temps and lake effect snow for the "U.P.ers." The wind will be felt down to the SE and S too.
Heavy rain is moving away from TX this morning, and you’ll begin to dry out. A new storm is off the coast of CA right now, and that should spray some rain into the Bay Area tomorrow.
That Alaska storm from yesterday may get into the record books. The pressure was as low as a Cat 3 hurricane, something the Bering Sea hasn’t seen since 1974. It produced a 10’ storm surge and had gusts to around 100 mph. Blizzard conditions have ebbed, but the damage has been done. Check out video from the storm below:
