Forecast for Sunday, February 24, 2013

A damp and dreary night for sure as periods of rain and drizzle along with areas of fog will impact the region. Some freezing on contact of the water droplets remains possible in the Poconos. The rain should begin to end around Midnight with lingering fog and drizzle into early on Sunday. Cloud cover should gradually decrease later on Sunday as it becomes blustery with wind gusts up to 35 MPH. There could be some areas of black ice on Sunday Morning for points North and West of Philadelphia.

The new week, about to begin, looks quite unsettled. An area of low pressure will move into the Ohio Valley on Tuesday, followed by the development of a secondary low at the coast. These areas of low pressure will move northward and spread rain across our region Tuesday into Tuesday Night. It will become breezy as the coastal low strengthens. Rainfall totals of one half inch to two inches look reasonable which could lead to some areas of localized flooding. Some showers are possible Wednesday through Friday with some weak systems moving on through.
