EVENING: Patchy Drizzle. Hi 35. Winds: E 5-10 mph.
TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy. Lo 32.
WEDNESDAY: Partly Cloudy, Breezy. Hi 40. Winds: NW 5-15 mph.
Many places are just above freezing this evening with a steady mist and fog. A few places are still at 32 degrees, so there remains a concern for ice on untreated roads, driveways and sidewalks. A northwesterly breeze develops later tonight to gradually clear the mist, drizzle and clouds by Wednesday morning.
A northwesterly breeze of 5 to 15mph will push drier air into the state throughout Wednesday with highs nearing 40 degrees. High pressure from Canada will drop the coldest air of the season (so far) into the northeast US by Thursday. Blustery northwest winds of 10-20mph with afternoon temperatures near 30 will produce winds chills in the teens for Thursday. These conditions will continue for Friday.
The weekend starts cold! We’ll drop in the mid teens Saturday morning as we stay dry and cold throughout the day. We are watching another system that could bring a wintry mix into the state for Sunday into Monday. There has been very little consistency in model guidance, but there is some confidence of at least some wintry mix as we begin next week. Stay tuned for more updates.
