We have mostly cloudy skies early on this Thursday morning and temperatures range from around 30 in the Clifton area to the low 20s further inland, winds are brisk out of the west-northwest.
A storm just off Nova Scotia combined to a high pressure to our east will give us a strong northwest flow of cold air, some gusts may approach 35 mph, considerable cloudiness will prevail most of the day along with a chance of some snow flurries.
Less wind and more sunshine on Friday will help high temperatures to rise a couple of degrees higher than today after a cold night.
Unseasonably mild and dry weather is in store for the weekend, we should see plenty of sunshine both days with high temperatures well up into the 50s and possible above 60 degrees both days.
Dry weather is expected early next week, temperatures will be cooler than the weekend but still well above normal for the third week of February.
