COLD WIND: We’re cold again today as temperatures rise from the 20s this morning into the middle 30s today. A weak clipper will swing through, keeping clouds in the forecast through the afternoon. It may even spark a few snow squalls around midday. Otherwise we’ll see some flurries as wind chills sit in the 20s.
CELEBRATIONS: Plans for this evening will feature some clearing skies, relaxing winds, and cold air. Temps will drop into the upper 20s with wind chills still in the teens early. By midnight, the breeze relaxes more and temps will be in the middle 20s. Dress warm!
New Year’s Day will feature more chill and mostly cloudy skies. Highs hit the middle 30s again with little breeze. Snow showers will develop, but the bulk of them look to stay along and north of I-80 at this time. We can’t rule out a few flakes.
SNOW TO COLD: We’re watching a coastal storm system set to develop and move over the Atlantic for Thursday into Friday. The models today have come into much better agreement that this thing will not develop into a major snowstorm. However, we do expect to see some accumulating snow for Thursday afternoon into Friday morning. We’re talking a few inches here and we’ll hammer out the timing and the numbers for you tomorrow. It should all end by Friday.
Once the snow ends early Friday, the door to arctic air blasts open. Friday morning, we’ll start in the teens as winds ramp up. By Friday afternoon, we’ll only manage to budge a few degrees. Wind chills will easily be in the single digits all day with winds 15-25mph and skies remaining mostly to partly cloudy. Stay warm!
WEEKEND: Saturday starts very chilly with lows in the single digits. However, sunshine and the core of colder air exiting will allow temperatures to rebound into the upper 20s. We’re mostly cloudy Sunday with high back to the upper 30s. Monday is a tough call, but we could see another shot at some rain or snow. We’ll watch it.
Here’s to a spectacular 2014! Celebrate safely tonight!
