A low pressure system that was located yesterday in the Carolinas will move up the Atlantic coast today, bringing with it rain, high winds, and plunging temperatures. While temperatures will be in the high 50s (°F) this morning, the passage of the cold front associated with this storm will cause temperatures to drop sharply throughout the day, eventually falling into the lower 40s (°F) by early evening. Combined with rain and gusty winds, deteriorating conditions will make for rather miserable weather this afternoon and evening.
For tomorrow, sunshine will return in part, with temperatures rising back into the 50s (°F). However, blustery winds will stick around, as the storm moves slowly out to sea. This type of storm, known as a nor’easter, will become more common as winter approaches, and could be responsible for heavy snowfalls later in the year.
