We reported on "cold air damming" yesterday, the wedge of high pressure pressing up against the lee side of the Appalachians with persist low clouds, stronger NE winds, passing showers or drizzle and cooler temperatures.
That set-up stays in place through the weekend with a couple of shower chances. And it will stay "ugly" until next week when the wedge breaks down, finally.
Coastal flooding should not be a problem after this morning. New moon tides are relaxing from this point, and the NE winds shift more northerly for the next 24 hours. So the salt water threat is reduced.
A major storm is approaching the west coast tracking toward the Great Lakes into the weekend. Plus a new developing low offshore from South Carolina Sunday will head up the eastern seaboard.
These systems will be impacting some holiday travel plans for next week. Although we will see warmer temperatures to start next week, your destinations may have some delays. We will be watching.
