TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy. Lo 32.

TUESDAY: Partly Sunny, Chilly. Hi 37.

WEDNESDAY: AM Flurries, Cool & Breezy. Hi 37.

What an afternoon we had ahead of a cold front! Temperatures soared into the low to mid 50s, making it yet another well above average January day. The front bears down on the region tonight, dropping temperatures into the low 30s by Tuesday morning. A few light showers are possible this evening with some flurries or light snow showers by morning but mainly south of Route 30.

Drier and colder air settles in Tuesday, as temperatures will actually feel like winter. Perhaps the final day of January will actually feel like it? Highs will be in the 30s with overnight lows in the 20s tomorrow and Wednesday. A fast-moving wave could bring us a quick skiff of snow showers late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning but it won’t be much. The rest of the week looks dry.

Models are honing in on a brief shot of Arctic air as we head toward the start of next weekend. Highs by Friday and Saturday will only be in the 20s with morning lows in the teens before temperatures bounce back by Sunday. Wind chills by Saturday morning will be below zero, but the cold air won’t stick around, as has been the case most of the winter thus far. Highs will be right back in the 40s by Sunday.
