Wednesday Sunshine and Very Cold

The bombardment of storms has relented for a few days, now the cold seems like it is going to be relentless.

The Christmas Day storm continued to intensify as it moved into Labrador where it is now stalled, and is actually backing a little bit toward the south.

Very little changes on the weather map over the next few days. High-pressure over southern Canada, combined with that low-pressure system over Labrador will maintain mostly dry and very cold weather into Friday. High temperatures in the single numbers and teens through the rest of the week, with sub-zero night time low temperatures.

The next shot at some more significant weather is with a clipper that comes through on Friday, increasing clouds with a chance of a dusting of snow late.

The weekend forecast is not so easy. First low pressure system is moving away on Saturday with increasing sunshine and temperatures remaining very cold.

On Sunday will be watching a storm system come across the southeastern United States with snow possibly as far south as Mississippi and Alabama. That storm will go off the middle Atlantic coast on Sunday, and may clip New England with a potential nor'easter on New Year's Eve.

Temperatures change very little with highs in the teens, and low temperatures near 0° Saturday and Sunday.

It's still too early really to say, but regardless of how much snow, if any, falls for New Year's eve and early New Year's Day, we will have another round of cold to record cold air arriving for the first few days of 2018. Many of the salt water harbors are probably going to freeze up, the most widespread ice since winter of 2014-15.

We will keep an eye out for any warming trend, and let you know the latest on the possible New Year's nor'easter, as the time approaches.
