The Week Ahead:

The pressure gradient responsible for the gusty winds will relax on Tuesday. As high pressure passes to our east on Wednesday a moderating trend in temperatures is on tap for the Mid-Atlantic with highs approaching 60 degrees on New Years Day.  New Years Eve looks dry at this time for festivities. Colder weather will return the first full week of January. Happy New Year!

      The GFS and Euro do suggest that an upper level low pressure system moving through the Midwest may spawn a coastal storm off of NJ. Where this system forms would determine who gets the snow in the Northeast Megalopolis. Could be one of those situations where DC and Baltimore are on the southern fringe of the accumulating snow and northern DE, NJ and eastern PA, NYC towards coastal New England get raked. I will blog about it as more model data comes in early week.
