The major league baseball season is scheduled to get underway on Thursday and the weather will not exactly cooperate in the northeastern quadrant of the nation. Not only is a much colder-than-normal air mass going to arrive on Thursday (Opening Day), winds will become quite strong from a northwesterly direction and accumulating snow can actually fall; especially, across interior sections of the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast US.
The cold blast will be preceded by a soaking rain event from later tomorrow into tomorrow night with multiple ingredients coming together in the Mid-Atlantic region. First, there will be a strong cold front pushing in this direction from the northwest and it will be “slowing down” in its forward motion. Second, a vigorous wave of energy in the upper atmosphere will parallel the front increasing the chance for the “training” of thunderstorms. And finally, low pressure will intensify as it pushes northeast along the frontal boundary zone. Rain, possibly heavy at times, will develop by Wednesday afternoon in the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast US and continue into tomorrow night and there can be a strong thunderstorm or two mixed into the picture.
