Colder to end January, watching storm for late weekend

Forecast

Storm potential again early next week...

EVENING: Mostly Cloudy, Breezy. Hi 40. Winds: NW 5-15 mph. Gusts to 25 mph.

TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Breezy. Lo 25. Winds: N 10-15 mph. Gusts to 30 mph.

THURSDAY: AM Clouds, PM Sun, Windy. Hi 30. Winds: NW 10-20 mph. Gusts to 30 mph.

Mostly cloudy skies will persist into this evening as a storm develops and passes to our south. Winds will continue to stay elevated with gusts to 30 mph possible through the overnight. Temperatures will drop into the mid 20s by morning, with wind chills dropping into the teens.

High pressure from Canada will drop the coldest air of the season (so far) into the Northeast U.S. by Thursday. Blustery northwest winds of 10-20 mph with afternoon temperatures near 30° will produce wind chills in the single digits and teens for both Thursday and Friday. Expect a mix of clouds and sun both days, but bundle up!

The cold air will set the stage for a possible winter storm early next week as an area of low pressure emerges out of the Rockies. With the event still four days away, plenty of uncertainty remains, but it appears snow will develop south to north by Sunday afternoon ahead of a warm front. Enough warm air may move northward for an eventual transition to a mix late Sunday/early Monday but at this point, the track doesn’t appear to favor that. A secondary wave of precipitation may develop Monday as a new coastal low develops just offshore of New Jersey. If the track of that low stays close enough, snow could persist into much of Monday, or if the storm travels further east, then we may get dry slotted for a time. Either way, while it’s still too early for specifics, plan for some travel disruptions late Sunday and Monday. Some warmer air will try to move in for the end of next week, but overall expect plenty of chilly air over the next seven days.
