EVENING: Mostly cloudy, not as cold. Temps in the 30s.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, not as cold. Low 28.
THURSDAY: More clouds than sun, milder. High 44.
Tonight will bring mostly cloudy skies and lows in the upper 20s, so not as cold as the previous few nights.
The next trough swings through tomorrow, bringing a few flurries to the western mountains. Most places will stay dry with some clouds. It will likely be our warmest day of the next 7 with highs in the mid to upper 40s.
Cold air quickly returns for Friday with winds increasing out of the northwest between 10-20mph. Highs for Friday will warm into the 30s and we plummet into the teens Friday night.
Saturday will certainly be cold. Despite the sunny skies our temperatures will struggle to warm into the 20s on Saturday. The establishment of the cold air plays an important role in the developing Nor’Easter for late Sunday.
Our region will be impacted by the Nor’Easter that is forecast to develop on Sunday. If this system was all snow, our team would be ready to start providing snow amounts. But it’s not going to be that easy. Warm air could play a large role in determining snow amounts Sunday night as the storm intensifies along the coast and changes the snow to rain in some areas . At this time, I prefer to focus on the parts of this storm that we do know. See bullet points in image below:
This storm could wrap up before lunchtime Monday with windy and colder conditions to follow. As always, we will be updating this page more frequently to give you the latest information on the storm. I would feel more confident in determining the snow amounts by Thursday or Friday morning at the latest.
