Arctic blast later Monday into Tuesday
The rain pushes away from the I-95 corridor early Monday, but a powerful upper-level wave of low pressure will bowl its way southeastward across the Great Lakes and into the Northeast US. This system will push an Arctic front through the NE US/Mid-Atlantic later Monday and this system will not go through unnoticed. The winds will kick up noticeably later Monday and continue on the strong side during Monday night as a tight pressure gradient forms between departing low pressure and an approaching strong high pressure system to our northwest. Much colder air will pour into the northeastern quadrant of the nation by Monday night and the sharply colder conditions will continue on Tuesday as well. However, while this Arctic blast will be rather intense, it will also be rather short-lived with calmer conditions and modification in temperatures by the time we get to Tuesday night/Wednesday.
Looking ahead, there is a chance that a storm forms somewhere near the east coast by the middle of next week and there will be some lingering chilly air around in the Northeast US – albeit not as cold as early in the week. This is a threat that will have to be monitored in coming days.
