Friday's Weather Discussion
After a developing area of low pressure brought some minor accumulating snowfall to coastal sections of the Mid-Atlantic and extreme southeast New England overnight, conditions will be turning much quieter for Friday. Any early morning clouds are expected to give way to partly to mostly sunny skies region-wide. It will however be very cold…with highs mainly in the 20’s and 30’s across most locations. Some spots across interior New England may even be stuck in the teens all day! Despite this, don’t expect things to be much colder than last night. After early evening lows, temperatures will actually begin to rise overnight, as strong southwesterly winds develop ahead of an approaching warm front. Readings will actually be running 5 – 10 degrees above average during the day on Saturday, before an arctic front crosses the region Sunday afternoon. Some of the coldest air in the past several years is expected behind this frontal passage. Make sure to dig out your winter coats and hats, as you will surely need them by the beginning of next week.
