Cold Front Slowly ApproachingJune 12th, 2012 at 11:29 am by Michelle Muscatello under General Talk, Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
A cold front will slowly make it’s way across Pennsylvania and New York today, with some clouds streaming into our area ahead of it. While there are showers associated with the front… they’ll be very slow to march into Eastern New England. In fact, our computer models don’t bring in much, if any rainfall before midnight. Our best chance of seeing widespread rain will be the 1st half of the day on Wednesday.
As for today… clouds and hazy sun will mix with temperatures climbing into the low 70s. The beaches will be a bit cooler with south winds bringing in cooler ocean air, leading to highs in the upper 60s.
In terms of how much rainfall we will get from tonight/tomorrow’s front–probably under 1/2″ in most areas… though some heavier downpours cant be ruled out. It looks like rain totals will be less the further east that you are as developing low pressure to the south cuts off the moisture flow with the cold front. In the map below, the latest model run for the NAM (12z) shows about 1/4-1/2″ of rain through 8am Thursday for most of our area… with up to an 1″ possible in NW RI and less than 1/4″ on the Cape.
