The low pressure that gave us the stormy weather yesterday has moved north of Maine and high pressure is building from the southeast states. A brisk northwest flow of seasonably cold air will be with us today along with mostly sunny skies.
Wednesday will be milder but there will be lots of clouds around as a cold front approaches from the west. Some light rain at night will change to light snow Thursday morning which may cause a coating of snow.
Much colder air will filter into our area on Thursday with temperatures falling into the 20s by sunset along with brisk winds.
Very cold weather will continue Friday through the weekend and we will be tracking a possible storm that may give us snow Friday night into Saturday. Plenty of time to watch the possible strength and track of the storm but at the present time the GFS model has the storm well offshore while the European model has the storm closes to us which would give our area significant snowfall.
Dry and cold weather is expected Sunday into early next week.
