Good morning! Happy Friday!
It’s a frosty and frigid end to the work week with subzero wind chills Friday. Actual air temps ranging from the upper single digits to the low and mid teens this afternoon combine with northwesterly winds of 10-20 mph, gusts to 30 mph, allow wind chill values of 10 to 30 degrees below zero. At least, it’s a beautiful day, albeit a very cold one. Skies will be mostly to partly sunny!
Tonight through Saturday, a weak Clipper system moves through bringing widespread, light snow. 1-3″ piles up by Saturday afternoon as snow becomes more showery and hit-or-miss in nature after lunchtime. Temps climb from near zero Friday night to the upper 20s and around 30 Saturday afternoon. Light southeast wind.
Sunday into Monday, a strong low pressure system will rapidly develop near Cape Cod. Widespread snow is expected to pick up around midday Sunday and persist through the afternoon on Monday. Snow starts out fairly light on Sunday, about 1-3″ through the evening, then the better atmospheric forcing arrives. The window of time for heaviest snow is Sunday night into Monday morning. By the time we wrap up Monday, most will see 6+” of snow.
Have a wonderful day!
