February 25th, 2012 Forecast

A strong cold front is currently moving through the area, bringing with it wind, rain and stress to forecasters everywhere.  As of 5PM, a Wind Advisory will take effect for the entire area, until 7PM Saturday.  Winds are forecasted to be very strong overnight as that cold front moves off to our east.

Tonight, those showers move off, although I wouldn't be surprised if some places around the Lehigh Valley see a snowflake or two squeaked out as the winds pick up and temperatures drop tonight and into tomorrow.  The strong pressure gradient set up by this low will keep winds breezy tomorrow, but after the morning hours, winds will start to calm down a bit.  Temperatures Saturday will be in the mid- to upper-40s although places south and east could hit 50F.

For Sunday, winds finally relax and the latter half of the weekend will be very seasonable, which seems to be noteworthy in itself.  The start of the workweek is definitely the best day of the seven-day forecast.  Warm with temps in the mid-50's with sun and clouds.  Our next storm system will come in mid week.  Skies will start to cloud up Tuesday, however the precipitation won't move in until later in the day.  Tuesday will not be a complete washout.  Wednesday, showers will be scattered, but persistent for a majority of the day, otherwise it'll be mostly cloudy.  As the storm system exits, breezy conditions will prevail with decreasing clouds.  Right now, Friday looks to be cooler and mostly sunny.
