The passage of a cold front over night caused drastic cooling in temperatures over night as well precipitation. This will leave temperatures lower for the weekend and no precipitation as high pressure enters the region. The cold front will continue to push eastward over the time period, with it causing precipitation ahead of thermal gradient.
Cold temperatures aloft will also persist for the weekend, with 850 mb temperatures at or below 0 degrees C for the weekend.
Relatively low vorticity over the region will also make for inactive weather in our area. However, the large vorticity max associated with Sandy is important to note off the coast. It will likely make landfall on the East Coast in the middle of next week. This will be important to watch in our area as well if the track begins to progress westward after landfall.
