Weather: Quiet, but colder (1/1/2019)

Planner for Wednesday January 2 2019

I hope you’re off to a splendid start to 2019. Tuesday morning, it did not feel like January. Tuesday night, any lingering snow showers will end and it will feel a lot like January! Strong northwest winds have been pulling in cold air all day and that’ll continue while most of us are sleeping. Expect lows around 5-10° with wind chills around/below 0°. 

Wednesday, the wind will be lighter and it’ll be a beautifully sunny day. However, highs will struggle to hit 20°. In case you forgot, normal is about 28°. If you’re looking for our next shot at snow, it arrives Wednesday night. Light snow will move in after dark and continue through the first part of Thursday. It’ll be light and fluffy but won’t add up to much. Aside from some slippery spots, I don’t see big problems with the Thursday morning drive. Most end up with around an inch or less, some of the highest mountains may get a little more. Friday, we’re between systems but you may find a few showers along/north of the border. Otherwise, expect a mix of sun and clouds with highs well into the 30s.

Saturday & Sunday, we’ll have a weak disturbance moving across southern Canada while a storm rides up the coast, into southern New England. At this point, the two look to stay away from each other. That means only a small chance at rain/snow showers for us with little impact. I hate to write this for snow lovers but remember it’s a long season. There won’t be any big storms through early next week but we’re looking at a daily shot of light snow showers that don’t add up to much. Highs each day will be in the 30s with lows in the teens & 20s. 

Happy New Year!
