We have partly cloudy skies early on this Friday morning and early morning temperatures are a bit above normal ranging from the mid 30s in the Clifton area to the upper 20s further inland, winds are from the west averaging around 10 mph. Some areas do have some black ice due to yesterday’s rain so be careful heading out early this morning.
A strong low pressure system that gave us the rain here yesterday and the heavy snow in parts of inland New England has moved into Quebec, a strong westerly flow of seasonably cold air will be with us, some gusts may reach 35 mph, also there is a chance of some snow squalls especially further inland where a quick coating may occur.
High pressure will be in control of our weather tomorrow and on New Year’s Day and now looks like it will remain dry throughout this period, temperatures will be near normal on Saturday and above normal on New Year’s Day.
A complex low pressure system is expected to give our area rain Monday into Tuesday that may begin as snow Monday morning, tempertures will be on the mild side.
Still mild on Wednesday with a possible lingering shower followed by dry and colder weather for the end of next week.
The storm that I mentioned yesterday for next weekend may be too far out to sea to give us any significant snow but this system still bears watching.
