Stormtracker 16 Meteorologist John Hickey

Amazing how much nicer it feels when it’s not raining!  Finally just a generally cloudy sky for your Wednesday night.  There’s likely to be some patchy mist and drizzle.  With temperatures flirting with freezing, especially in the higher elevations, there could be a couple of slick spots.  Outside of that, you should be OK if you’re headed out.

Thursday brings some brighter changes!  High pressure nosing in from the south should help to break the cloud cover up a bit.  It won’t be a completely sunny day, but we’ll take any sunny breaks we can get given that pattern we’ve found ourselves in of late.  Friday starts off with some filtered sun before clouds thicken up in the afternoon.  A warm front lifts through with some showers in time for the Friday evening drive.

Your weekend looks rather pleasant.  We’ll find some sun with temperatures near 50 on Saturday.  Can you believe that it’s January?  It’s another warm one on Sunday but that’s when we head into a wet couple of days.

A slow moving low pressure system will meander its way off the Mid-Atlantic coast Sunday night.  At the onset, we may find a brief period of freezing rain in the Poconos.  Everyone goes over to a plain rain on Monday and the rain may become heavy at times Monday night.  An Easterly wind will pick up as well.  Rain continues into Tuesday morning before tapering off in the afternoon.  Rainfall totals between this two day event may create flooding issues in low lying areas.  The Stormtracker 16 weather team will keep an eye on this risk for you through the week and weekend.
