Another cold front from Canada crossed New England Thursday night. This morning we have a clearing sky with temperatures starting in the 20s to low 30s.
Wind will be increasing from the northwest under mostly sunny skies Friday, high temperatures will occur in the morning to about lunchtime. Only in the 20s north close to 40 at the south coast and then dropping during the afternoon. Wind from the northwest will gust past 25 mph adding an extra chill to the air.
Mostly clear and very cold Friday night, low temperature 0 to 10 degrees in the far north, 10 to 20 degrees south, wind remains rather gusty. We’re looking forward to a sunny Saturday, but cold with a high temperature only in the 20s south, and 10s north.
The wind will ease a bit late in the day. With a clear sky and light wind at night, we have radiational cooling, allowing us to get down below zero in far northern New England Sunday morning, to the teens and low 20s toward the south coast.
A weak front comes in from the north Sunday with a few clouds and a snow shower north, otherwise sunshine and a little less cold with a high temperature in the low 30s south, 20s north.
In the big picture, there’s a major winter storm developing from Texas to North Carolina, the mountains well to our south may see a couple of feet of snow in western North Carolina.
That storm tracks to our east early next week, keeping our flow from the north and the air remaining rather cold and dry into at least the middle of the week. There are signs that a warmer storm may bring a wintry mix and rain by Friday, we'll keep an eye on that one.
