One more quiet day today before Alert Weather on Friday. This time around it won’t bring much snow, but heavy rain and strong wind gusts with the possibility for flooding and outages.
This afternoon will feature highs in the 30’s to near 40 south with thickening clouds ahead of this next system.
While there may be some pockets of snow or a wintry mix initially very late Thursday night or early Friday morning (especially north and west), rain, gusty southerly winds, and mild air is expected for most of the day Friday. Temperatures will climb into the 40s and 50s during the afternoon Friday.
Rainfall may amount to 1-2″ in southern areas, but in the mountains 3+” is possible. That heavy rain coupled with rapid snowmelt could mean localized flooding. Also at the coast, high tide flooding is possible as this storm will bring a surge. We are at a higher astronomical tide time, so there could be minor-moderate flooding at the Friday morning high tide time.
Winds will be very strong throughout the day Friday. There could be some gusts to 45-55 mph, especially at the coast and in the higher terrain in the afternoon as the sharp cold front approaches.
After a mild Friday, temperatures fall fast into the teens and 20s Friday night. That means any remaining standing water could freeze, creating slick spots.
Bottom line, holiday travel impacts are likely Friday and Friday night.
What follows this storm is a blast of cold air just in time for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Highs will likely only be in the 20s for both days over the weekend.
