Sun To Clouds, Prelude To Cold Shot
Computer guidance last night shifted a bit milder and faster with the onset of precipitation for this upcoming event...which isn't good news for those of you south and east of Philadelphia who wanted snow from this system. Projections in modeling suggest that we could see rain showers arriving after 7 PM in the fastest of guidance, with after 9 PM the consensus among all three models regarding when precipitation will start. Given the timing and warmer look, precipitation will start as rain for many before changing to snow north and west of the city as the evening progresses. The city may hold onto rain a while longer before changing to and ending as a period of snow early Saturday morning. For those of you south of Atlantic City, it's looking a lot less likely that you'll see much more than a few flakes at the end of the event as the faster arrival of the system and the milder trends will mitigate snow chances. More forthcoming along with a snowfall projection map.
In terms of temperatures, expect mid and upper 40's across the region today with sun giving way to clouds. It will be a touch breezy at times with west-southwest breezes around ten miles per hour.
