Coastal Storm Cranking Farther East

Satellite images this  morning show the low pressure system that developed over the coastal Carolinas Thursday night is really getting wound up tight, but this time it is too far east to play a major role in Baltimore’s weather.  At 7:00am Friday the central pressure was estimated to be around 994 millibars, which is about what the computer models were forecasting yesterday.  The models this morning are forecasting more intensification, down to under 984 millibars by 7:00pm, as the system pulls farther away from the coast.  Meanwhile, the next Pacific storm is headed this way and should emerge east of the Rockies Saturday morning.  This one is forecast to track toward the Great Lakes, drawing warmer air and possibly some heavy rain into the eastern U.S. Sunday and early Monday.  However, winter weather lovers should not despair…a cold front is expected to push off the eastern seaboard Monday afternoon opening the door to much colder air next week.  Perhaps the foundation for a snowy start to February?  Stay tuned.
