5:44 am
and that's what typically takes over. in addition to that, with cold fronts, you tends to get more after rising air effect out of this. that can lead to stronger bouts of severe weather, as well as heavier rain, that kind of thing. meanwhile, when you are talking about warmfronts, you're also going to be dealing with some wet weather. however, again, cold sinking air behind the front, clearing, cool breezy conditions in its wakes, when talking warmfronts, that's where you see these red fronts roll on through. you're dealing with warm air basically taking over. and it is pushing into the cooler air. so that typically would lead to portrait i form precipitation, in other words, sort of just a light rain that throughout the day. and it is feeling kind of warm, muggy, that a lot of times comes from a warmfront. so it is clear, mild, humid conditions, in advance of it, but a lot of times you do end up with some steady but light rain or drizzle in advance of it. behind it, cool, retreating air, and clouds and showers as well as cooler temps to go along with it, we do have cold
5:45 am
front we're tracking right now, it is well off to the north and west, currently, pent up across central canada, and the prairies, and yes, if you look closely, there is snow out there. this will be the next front that actually rolls through our area, but no snow. i promise. no snow. not for us anyway. but it will pack a punch across the us, brinking in pretty significant drop in the thermometer for quite a few locations as far as texas. here is a area of low pressure also going to be affecting us here today. it is basically clipping our region, but bringing with it some steady rain, through our south and east most counties. so, what that means is higher rip countries being it, also means coastal flood advisories, up and down the jersey shore points, through all of the bay areas, and again, through cape may county, sussex county, delaware, i think you have pretty decent shot here toned up with soaking rain. let's look at the seven day forecast, tomorrow we actually catch a break in the wake that far system, thursday marks the arrival of our next cold front, the one i just showed you up in canada, before it gets here, though, we heat up.
