Temperatures this morning are near record lows with readings in the teens , skies are clear but winds have diminished from yesterday. It should not be this cold again till at least next November.
Today will feel much more bearable than yesterday as the monster low pressure moved further away into the Canadian Maritimes and high pressure builds into the area. Winds will further diminish and temperatures will rise into the upper 40s, still below normal for this time of year. We will have a sunny start to the day but increasing clouds later in the day.
Early morning temperatures on Friday will be around 15 degrees warmer than this morning. During the day showers will likely develop before noon and last through the afternoon, temperatures will become mild reaching close to the 60 degree mark.
Saturday will be a cloudy day with rain developing in the afternoon and continuing at night, we may receive over an inch of rain, temperatures will not be as mild as Friday but should still reach close to 50 degrees.
Questions on how fast the system moves through, the European model keeps rain in the area most of Sunday and Sunday night while the American model moves the system offshore keeping our area dry on Sunday. I will side with the American model this time and only forecast a chance of showers early on Sunday.
Clearing and mild for Monday with a chance of showers and mild on Tuesday, clearing and continued seasonably mild on Wednesday.
