The strong low pressure center, known as a nor’easter’ is located southeast of the New Jersey coast. As it continues to move to the north and eventually northeast, it will take its nasty combination of rain, snow, high winds and rough surf along with it. But in the process it is delivering another blow to residents still trying to recover from the horrific effects of Sandy. In our area, we expect a cloudy and cold night with a few flurries or patches of light rain mainly east of Washington. But you won’t have to go very far east and northeast of here to find more snow and stronger winds. By tomorrow, the next area of high pressure will start building into the region. This high will interact with the storm to create very breezy conditions and very chilly temperatures. It will also deliver some drier air that will start clearing the skies. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday the high will move overhead and eventually to our east. This will give us a nice stretch of sunny and milder days.
