Last Call on 50 Deg. Weather
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Well that about wraps our lil' stint in the 50s. Sun gave us another boost today, despite the fact the colder air was moving in overhead all afternoon.
We'll feel that in the days to come with a gusty wind and limited sun. I'm only expecting highs to bump 40 degrees each afternoon - just a tad below normal for this time of year.
Next storm up is on Saturday. I'm seeing a glancing shot of some very light snow by Saturday afternoon. The trend has been to scoot this farther and farther away over the last day and a half, and I would be surprised to see it keep slip-sliding away even more by tomorrow or Friday. The cold air is just too much for the storm to heave around, so instead it just goes around it.
Longer range, it's still unsettled. And with cold air locking down across the Northeast, our concerns revolve around the potential for snow. After Saturday, the next threat is Monday night and Tuesday. Already this storm has the markers for a changeover from snow to rain - with a caveat. The cold may be deep and stubborn, so before the changeover we might see ice. It's an ugly setup, but to the trained eye, a familiar one.
Over and out.
