CALMER, COLDER NIGHT
Skies remain mostly cloudy and there could be a few snow flurries but most of them will remain north and west of the turnpike. Winds will ease up a bit heading further into the evening. Overnight lows expected to drop into the 20s by morning.
A brisk northwest flow continues keeping temperatures below average and the winds breezy. Clouds will mix with some sunshine and disturbances rotating through an upper level low may produce spotty light snow showers for tomorrow. Highs will be noticeably colder, remaining in the 30s.
Northwest flow and gusty winds end our week for Friday. Highs will be a bit warmer, as a little more sunshine peaks through and the upper level trof flattens a bit. Temperatures should get into the low 40s but still falling well short of the average of 52 degrees.
High pressure at the surface and a ridge building in slightly in the upper levels will allow for the best day of the weekend. Sunshine and temperatures in the upper 40s will be welcomed after a string of chilly, brisk weather. But it won’t last long.
Clouds will be increasing on Sunday as the next storm system brews to our southwest. Questions still remain on timing, track and of course temperatures. Right now the moisture looks to hold off until evening Sunday. As it arrives, it falls in the form of snow. Heading into Monday, it looks like a period of snow but some models are indicating warmer temperatures which would mean a mix of rain or a change to rain. We’ll be monitoring data the next couple of days so we can iron out the details for you.
Bundle up and enjoy your evening!
