Good Wednesday evening NWS Mount Holly FB followers and visitors to NJ DE e Pa e MD. Thank you very-very much for your expressions and well wishes!! We should move forward and look ahead.
We have a tussle between very warm air and cool air over area the next 36 hours, which will result in areas of rain, fog. It all clears out for a beautiful Saturday and probably a good Sunday.
There's not much we can say or do about the first half of April. Like it or not, odds favor a mostly cold period between April 5 and 12 as graphically displayed in the ensemble below. The darker the shade of blue the more likely it will be cold at times, for April. Also, those ensembles are favoring a storm track from the lower Mississippi Valley into the northeast USA with above normal amounts precipitation. The second graphic, while not overwhelming in its expression of confidence for Days 6 ,7 (Monday-Tuesday), does hint that several inches of snow are "possible" in parts of eastern PA and nw NJ. Its tough to say when something sizable in the way of a wintry weather system will affect our area, but there is a "chance" for one more large scale, winter weather event (elevations) here in our area, between the 2nd and 12th. Maybe it wont occur, but the pattern will permit it. It certainly confidently implies that persistent springlike ABOVE NORMAL warmth is delayed, probably beyond the first half of April. The latter we're pretty sure of.
