BRIEF COLD WEATHER OUTLOOK…MAR. 25, 2013…ISSUED 11:50 A.M. EDT…PHFC

Good day everyone!

The Storm Prediction Center does not indicate nay severe weather over the next 3-5 days.

The current system off the NE U.S. coast will continue to bring gusty winds onshore, with possible minor coastal flooding at high tide.  This low is forecast to move off toward the NE. Residents along the area should see conditions begin to improve within the next 24 hours.

Colder air will continue to push southward for the next couple of days, before retreating northward, with temperatures moderating nicely beginning around the 28th.

The long range GFS is showing still another round of very cold air pushing southward around the time of April 05.  This could be the last extremely cold blast for the season, but I will know more once the models get further out in the forecast period.

Have a blessed day!

About palmharborforecastcenter

I am a Tropical Forecast meteorologist, providing hurricane forecasts during the Atlantic Hurricane Season. I retired from the U.S. Coast Guard in July of 2001. Meteorology became my passion in high school, and I have continued my educational background in meteorology since 1996, when I undertook the study of Tropical Meteorology. While working toward my degree, I had to unexpectedly withdraw from college due to my oldest sons medical reasons. I do however, meet the educational criteria of the AMS to be recognized as a meteorologist. Studies include, but are not limited to the Navy Aerographers Mate course, Naval METOC meteorology course, Meteorology 2010 Sophomore level course while attending St. Petersburg College, Clearwater, FL., Basic Forecasting course for operational meteorologists from Rapid WX, meteorology institute, a four month meteorological internship, and extensive research on numerous meteorological topics such as the MJO, NAO, satellite imagery interpretation, etc. I have been forecasting Tropical Weather (Tropical Storms and Hurricanes) since 1996, with my main client being three different Coast Guard Commands.

    Hi Storm and thanks again. So far nothing here in SW CT. Been in VIRGA for hours now. My temp. is 42F, after an earlier high of 46F. Wind is NE at 10-15mph. Barometer down to 29.49″. We still are forecast to get some light precipitation as the day and evening go on. The heavier precip. is SW of us over NJ.. Seems to be trying to come Northward as the coastal storm gets going and starts taking over from the inland system dying out over Ohio. I’ll report in if we get anything at all. LT
