Skies will clear as high pressure builds in from the west. With the departing frontal system and the approaching high, the pressure gradient will be tight resulting in breezy conditions. Colder air filters in making it feel more like winter again as we will be dealing with wind chill readings in the teens. Temperatures will fall to the mid 30s tonight then dive to the low to mid 20s tomorrow morning.
It should be a chilly day in the 40s, with a breeze out of the northwest, under mostly sunny skies as high pressure brings quiet weather. Clear and cold once again into Thursday morning with morning lows back to the 20’s again. Thursday temperatures remain in the 40’s and below average. While we start with sunshine, clouds stream back in ahead of our next system.
Low pressure streams in from the southwest bringing a swath of moisture to the area. With high pressure to the northeast providing colder air flow, we could see light snow initially very early Friday morning. It tracks to our south and off the coast and late in the day. Any wintry precipitation should transition to rain showers as temperatures climb to the 40s. Still looking at a deep trough to set up over the area over the weekend keeping temperatures colder than average. Strong cold front still looks to push through Saturday. So a bump in temps for the start of the weekend near 50 but back to the low 40’s Sunday and Monday with dry conditions. There will be areas that stay in the 30’s. While the calendar will say spring, mild temperatures will be hard to find across the northeast as a trough, colder air and high pressure dominates through Tuesday. The combination will also help to suppress storm systems from moving in until midweek.
