Northeast US warned of Hurricane Dorian impact at weeks end

While the northeastern United States will deal with a couple of non-tropical storm systems through midweek, many residents will be pondering on what Dorian may bring by weeks end. The weather pattern will be quite as active across the Northeast this week as two separate, non-tropical storm systems sweep through the region, prior to Dorian‘s arrival.

The week will consist of a back-and-forth pattern of wet versus dry weather. Monday will be cloudy and wet for most across the Northeast as the first system delivers showers and a few thunderstorms.

With Labor Day typically marking the end of the summer season across the northern tier of the country, those heading outdoors to partake in any last-minute activities will need to bring along the rain gear. Know exactly when rain will begin by using AccuWeather MinuteCast®. From Baltimore to New York City and Boston, the majority of the activity will wait until the afternoon and evening. It is also along this corridor that a few thunderstorms can be heavy and gusty.

As most people head back to work on Tuesday, high pressure will overspread the area and bring mostly sunny, pleasant and dry conditions. Highs on Tuesday will generally range from the lower 80s along the major cities to the 70s across the interior.  AccuWeather RealFeel(R) Temperatures in major cities, such as New York and Philadelphia, could reach as high as 90 degrees.

Showers and thunderstorms will be quick to return as another storm swings through the region on Wednesday.

With the main energy of this storm up in Canada, activity will be on a more isolated level when compared to Monday.

As the end of the week approaches, all eyes will be focused on Dorian, which strengthened into a powerful Category 5 hurricane on Sunday as it passed over the northernmost islands in the Bahamas, Abaco and Grand Bahama. The projected track of Dorian will keep it just off the Southeast coast through Thursday.

It is not expected to be nearly this strong when it nears the Northeast, but the storm could still pack a punch.

“As Dorian interacts with the non-tropical storm that will cross the Northeast Wednesday into Thursday, it should aid in the storm moving on a northeasterly path off the Northeast coast,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Rob Miller said.

Dorian could take a similar track to that of Tropical Rainstorm Erin from last week.
