Thursday was beautifully cold. We had ample sunshine from start to finish but the wind hurt a bit. Highs were able to get into the teens & low 20s but for most of the day, it didn’t feel anywhere near that ‘warm’. Thursday night, the wind is light, skies are clear and the air is bone dry; lows will be around -5 to 5°. Friday, we get a sunny day with highs in the low 20s.
At this point, most of Saturday looks good but it will be warmer and breezy. South winds will kick in during the afternoon, gusting near 30mph. That will help highs will get into the upper 30s & low 40s. Light rain and snow showers will arrive by mid to late afternoon in northern New York, they certainly won’t be washout material. They’ll move east into Vermont & New Hampshire during the late evening. Saturday is your day to get outside. Saturday night, rain and snow showers continue, roads will be wet and perhaps a little icy in spots. The mix turns to spotty plain rain during the day Sunday before switching to snow Sunday night & the first part of Monday. Travel overnight Sunday into Monday may be slippery too. Precipitation amounts look light but even a little bit of water or ice on roads can be enough to cause slow downs.
Ice jams remain in place all over New York, Vermont & New Hampshire. These are the known ice jams in the North Country.
