Coastal Storm Develops Friday
After a rainy start, we are finishing this day with clearing skies and a celestial event! If you look to the western sky above the horizon at 6:58 pm, you will catch the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter. It will be visible with the naked eye so you won’t need any special equipment.
Skies will be clear overnight and sunshine will start off Friday. As an area of low pressure moves through the Great Lakes region tomorrow, we will see an increase in clouds through the day. This low will transfer energy into the development of a coastal storm. While there is a slight chance of a rain shower in the late afternoon, precipitation is expected after the late commute. Friday night we will see the development of rain and show with the addition of sleet around midnight. We have the chance of minor accumulations of snow and sleet by Saturday morning with nothing along the coast as there we will be pretty much all rain. Saturday will see rain and snow showers with no additional accumulations. It will also become quite windy as this storm system comes through. Gusts could top out at 35-40 mph and higher along the Cape. Sunday will be a blend of sun and clouds with seasonable temperatures. Sunny and dry days will take us through the first half of next week.
