Colder temperatures and light snow showers
OVERVIEW: Northwesterly flow keeping things very cold this evening. There will be two disturbances that roll through, one tomorrow morning, the other, Wednesday morning. Both could bring some light snow. A deepening trough settles in over the northeast and will reinforce the colder than average temperatures for the rest of the week into the weekend.
TONIGHT: Winds ease up a bit but will still be breezy. Mostly clear for a few hours then clouds return overnight as upper level energy dives in from the northwest. Lows will be very cold in the upper teens and low 20s. Light snow will be possible heading towards the late morning hours.
COLD AIR RETURNS: After a weekend in the 50s, a cold front last night brought a few rain showers last night and much colder air for today. A series of upper level systems will reinforce colder air for the upcoming week while an upper level trough digs and deepens over the east coast. With those clipper type systems, it looks like a couple of chances for snow showers early morning tomorrow and Wednesday. Snow looks to be light maybe a coating in some places at most. Highs tomorrow will hover around 30°. Wednesday, lows will be in the lower 20s and with another shot of colder air and clouds hanging around as the next system moves through late morning bringing light snow showers, highs will struggle to get out of the 20’s.
LAST FEW DAYS OF FEBRUARY: The coldest air of the week invades late Wednesday night into Thursday and Friday as temperatures plummet to 10° both mornings, and despite sunshine, highs Thursday will only reach the upper 20s, we do a bit better Friday with highs near 30°.
MARCH IN LIKE A LION OR LAMB: Well no major storms for the first day of March and it looks like temperatures will warm to the low to mid 30s but a few snow showers are possible as a clipper type system rotates in. Sunday will be quiet but colder with lows around 20 and highs in the low 30s. Best chance as of now for seeing accumulating snows will be Monday. We’ll have to watch the development of a storm that could bring snow to the area.
Bundle up and stay warm this week!
