So long 2013 and hello, 2014!

The weather is going to be seasonably cool as fireworks fill the skyline and party hats stroll through town. Here is what you can expect for midnight Wednesday, January 1.

A surface low pressure center will be moving east from Quebec's Eastern Townships and an attached cold front parallel to the Canadian border will spread light snow showers north of NY Rt. 3 and VT/NH Rt. 2. There it will be cloudiest, but south of those boundaries it will be clearer as brief high pressure attempts to build in.

This will be a strong cold front in and around the area New Years Eve Night, so temperatures will quickly drop after midnight. However until midnight we'll find temperatures remaining steady in the teens, but then the temp will drop to around zero degrees by dawn on New Years Day.

Any snow accumulation will be light New Years Eve, however just enough to coat area surfaces and make them slippery. Thus please be careful driving around! Winds will be breezy too, up to 15 mph and ranging from 5-10 mph at most times from the west-northwest. This will make it feel colder, generally -5 degrees to +5 degrees through the evening.

It will then give way to a cold New Years Day as projected temperatures only climb to around ten degrees at best!
