Take A Dive

Forget the fiscal cliff...our temps just jumped off the meteorological cliff. Yowza---when you factor in the wind chill this morning, it feels nearly 40 degrees colder right now compared to yesterday at this time (5am).
The good thing about all the new-found cold air is the fact that it is dry so you have sunshine for the day. Despite all that sunshine, temps will crawl to 40 by afternoon. A fiesty northwest wind this morning will fade by afternoon--all in all, a nice early winter day. Skies remain mostly clear this evening before more clouds arrive after midnight. Evening temps into the 20s.
Friday offers more seasonable temps with afternoon highs reaching the mid & upper 40s. The reason for the milder day is our next storm approaching as it will push slightly warmer air into New England. This storm will also push clouds into our skies throughout the day and eventually some rain showers late in the day.
The weekend....everybody works for it and hopes for sunshine too. Outta luck here kids as a slow moving storm lolly-gags through the northeast both weekend days. That means each day offers clouds and a few showers each day---Saturday's chance of rain is a little higher than Sunday's (70% versus 40%). Sorry snow-lovers, no cold air for this weekend storm so just raindrops...no snowflakes. Hang in there.
