We’ve been watching the models closely, and they have been hinting at the potential development of a coastal storm. They now do develop one and bring it close enough to bring some impacts to the Northeast coast Tuesday night into Wednesday. Since it won’t be cold enough for snow, however, it will be another rain event.
The Mid-Atlantic coast will start the day Wednesday with a light rain as the outer edges of the offshore storm just clips the region. That rain will end by noon, then the sunshine will gradually return.
In New England, especially eastern New England, it’s going to be a washout of a day. A light to moderate rain is forecast for Wednesday. That rain will then come to an end during the evening as a cold front from the west clears the rain to the east and off the coast. Unfortunately, this falls on the day just before Thanksgiving, so travel may be a mess. Airports, especially Boston Logan Airport, will likely feature delays due to low ceilings.
Also along that cold front coming in from the west, it will drop a general one to three inches of snow to western Pennsylvania and New York and Upstate New York tonight into Wednesday morning.
