It’s a busy weekend in the plains, but that doesn’t mean we will ignore what’s going on elsewhere in the country.
At 1254PM, ET, Philadelphia was reporting mostly cloudy skies with a temperature of 80 degrees. A thermal ridge across the east coast promised that the warmth already seen in Philadelphia would continue through the day. The upper level ridge is expected to be a permanent fixture through the weekend.
A handful of systems will conspire to bring Philadelphia some showers on Mother’s Day. Subtropical Storm Ana is working towards the Carolina coast, and will contribute an easterly flow to the mid-Atlantic that will potentially lead to an isolated shower or storm tomorrow afternoon. A system moving towards Labrador is extending a cold front towards New England. It will struggle to bring enough moisture to climb over the mountains, but Sunday does look significantly cloudier than Saturday. It will also work to suppress Ana’s northerly progression, so despite being surrounded, by precipitation, Philadelphia should stay dry on Mother’s Day.
