An active pattern, discussed for several weeks, has finally arrived over the past several days. Its impacts will continue to be felt late this week into parts of the weekend. Despite some drier and more pleasant weather on Wednesday and Thursday, another significant storm system is already organizing over the Central United States. This storm system is currently producing severe weather in the Mississippi River Valley and its moisture will continue to shift towards the Northeast States.
The first sign of its arrival will be increasingly thick clouds which will lower as the evening goes on. Precipitation will then develop northeastwards from the Mid Atlantic and Ohio Valley into the Northeast states from late Thursday Night into Friday. For much of the Mid Atlantic and Coastal Southern New England, precipitation will begin as rain — although some ice pellets are possible as the atmosphere begins to moisten up over Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey.
