Coldest Behind Us
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Well we made it. To Friday, to the weekend, to the other side...
...of the cold. I'm not ready to back off completely on the arctic air, but the coldest days are behind us. (I'm almost ready to say for the entire winter too - climatologically, we're passing the coldest part of winter.) The weekend will still be cold - esp. in the mornings with temps in the teens - but it won't be as numbing as the past few days.
We also are watching a weak storm system rounding Long Island and Nantucket en route to the open Atlantic. Not much to fuss about as the cold, dry air squashes the snow into the Mid-Atlantic:
Not a lot of wind tomorrow in the wake of this system, but it won't exactly be calm either. Expect a nagging, persistent wind most of the day with a blend of sun and clouds. Sunday is the pick of the weekend! Highs near 30 (what's that like?) and sun dominates.
After all this bitter air it's hard to believe we'll be tracking a mild, wet storm early next week. Before we turn to raindrops, however, we may get a couple of inches of snow in some spots Monday night. The warmup will last through Wednesday before Old Man Winter sends in the cold reinforcements late next week.
Make it a good weekend!
