The triangles and squares and stars represent all the models tracks... The black line is HPC's track. They basically just take an average of all the models. If that Low goes north of us obviously its going to be rain...if it stays south its going to be all snow.. Rain doesnt affect anyone, its the snows we all need to know about because it affects school, work and travel. Notice the pluses south of that L near us... gotta keep an eye on it still. Nothing is locked.

According to the National Weather Service…we did not break any heat records today in the Tri-State area. The overcast broke a little late to get temps really high. Here are the highs at 3:00 PM obs:

Newark hit 70 F….
Central Park hit 67 F…
Trenton hit 71 F…
Atlantic City hit 70 F…
Hartford hit 63 F.

Looks to turn windy this weekend as the storm to our north pulls through. Sat and Sun should be much cooler (in the 30’s ) but the sun should be out. We’ll have to see how close the rain/snow gets on Sunday night/Monday.

This is interesting... For Hartford County they have snow for Sunday night at 70% then sleet and rain for Monday and back to 30% snow Mon night.

For Tolland County they have Snow for Sunday night at 60%, snow for Monday at 70% and snow for Monday night at 30%..

While not a big storm at all its interesting to see the dynamics of this.. Neighboring countys yet one can stay all snow and one can be mix stuff.

Monday-Tuesday Storm Update:

NWS should be updating their info in the morning...

The models still have the 2 storm idea but they are starting to trend south on the 1st one and North on the second one. That means colder air filters slightly south more for the first and the precip enters the area for the second. The air will be cold enough on the second where any precip that falls will be snow. Models starting to show plowable snows for CT now.

I'll edit with images in a little bit..

edit: Here's the first storm.. Starting at hr54 ending at hr66. Notice the rain stays south of CT on this model run... instead of flooding the thread with images just ask me for the other models which are starting to show similar senarios.

The second storm starts 12 hours after this one.
