More rain is on the way!
Another cold front will move through Pennsylvania tomorrow. It will then stall out resulting in thunderstorms for us. A stronger and more widespread storm will then come up tomorrow night and drop heavy rain on the area. The rain should dry out by late Sunday. Below are my estimated rainfall amounts.
Judging from the rain totals this storm doesn't look too bad. Just a normal Fall rain storm right? Nope this storm has got a trick up its sleeve that looks very interesting.
It doesn't look like this weekends storm will turn into a coastal storm as of right now but it could. The rain maker that will definitely happen will track through the Appalachian mountains not in the the ocean. However, right behind that rain maker there is a very moist, windy and fast moving storm that will be out to sea. It looks like this storm will pass harmlessly to the east of us but that could change.
The worst case scenario is that the ocean storm gets close enough to the Appalachian storm and then the two of them merge . If this were to happen they would probably merge somewhere near us resulting in a full blown nor'easter starting Sunday and not ending until Monday.
No model is showing this yet but some models are hinting at it. Just look at the latest canadian.
The main storm that is located in Canada in the picture isn't causing much moisture at all but the ocean storm has lots of moisture and a good amount of wind with it. The two storms have a good amount of distance and the model doesn't show a full merge but it does show some interaction.
Right now a nor'easter looks very unlikely but it is something to watch out for.
