Today’s Weather Synopsis…
After a frigid cold start to the day, fair and dry weather with unseasonably cold conditions will persist to begin the weekend with plenty of sunshine as a large area of high pressure builds south of the region. Another very cold night is expected into tonight with temperatures dropping below zero before clouds increase toward daybreak.
An area of low pressure and associated warm front will begin to approach on Sunday with some light snow arriving late in the day. A light to potentially moderate accumulating snowfall is then expected Sunday night into early Monday, with gradually improving conditions into Monday afternoon as a cold front tracks through and snow showers taper off. Another area of high pressure will quickly move across the region into Monday night and early Tuesday, before a storm system approaches for mid-week that could bring a bout of wintry mix.
