WEEKEND WEATHER OUTLOOK – THURSDAY EDITION

The GFS, FV3-GFS,  NBM and NAM models have all come to a consensus that this will be a rainy weekend in Philadelphia.

All models have rain for both Saturday and Sunday! (Sunday afternoon is expected to have the least amount of rain. )   The GFS from earlier this week seems to have had the best continuity with the forecast and seems to have been more accurate than the new, still unofficial, FV3-GFS.

Saturday: Cloudy with rain. High 50-55

Sunday: Cloudy with rain in the morning, intermittent showers in the afternoon.   Breezy. High near 50.

The models have been consistent over the past week in predicting a large storm for Dec 24th, Christmas eve. It looks like rain for our area, but there’s a reasonable chance of light snow or flurries early Christmas morning as very cold air moves in behind the low pressure system.
