It’s a clear and cold day outside, with temperatures generally within a few degrees on either side of the 40 degree mark across the state, and except for a few lingering clouds in the northern tier of the state, we’ve got clear skies and sunshine as the theme of the day. While it may warm a few more degrees over the course of the afternoon, the theme for the rest of the day will be below normal temperatures.
Thankfully, that changes tomorrow, as warmer air moves in and sends temperatures into the low to mid 50s across the state, which when combined with a mix of clouds and sun will feel positively spring like! There is a slim chance of a passing shower or sprinkle, especially in the afternoon and in northern areas, but for the most part, we should remain dry until after dark.
Every cloud has a silver lining, and the silver lining here is that this system will bring with it much warmer temperatures, with highs on Friday pushing into the 60s! However, it will be short-lived as colder air comes in on the backside of the system, crashing our temperatures back down to around the freezing mark by Saturday evening. There is a slim chance of a bit of snow on the backside of the system, but as of now not expecting any meaningful accumulations outside of perhaps a dusting to a coating in the higher elevations.
In the long range, generally below normal temperatures and unsettled weather continues to be the theme, with several possible chances for precipitation on the models from early next week on. We’ll get into that in more detail as we draw closer, but until then, have a great rest of your day and thank you for reading SCW!
