Skies are cloudy early this morning and temperatures range from the freezing mark in Clifton down to the mid 20s further inland, winds are light northerly. After yesterday’s snow and freezing rain untreated roads and sidewalks may be icy early this morning. Yesterday I recorded 2 inches of snow and ice accumulation.
The low pressure responsible for yesterday’s mess is moving away and a westerly flow of drier air will move into our area, temperatures will rise into the 50s, melting much of the snow and ice we received yesterday. It will become mostly sunny and winds will be brisk. Note – last year on this date the temperature rose to a record breaking 80 degrees.
Dry weather with slightly above normal temperatures Friday into the day on Saturday.
A low pressure area will give us rain Saturday night into Sunday morning, the rain may be heavy at times.
Sunday afternoon and Monday will be dry but with strong winds on the back side of the low pressure that will be moving into the Canadian maritime region.
After a dry Tuesday some rain or snow showers are possible on Wednesday.
