Yesterday’s storm may leave a few slick spots this morning… be careful. Today brings a new concern: very gusty winds! The combination of the strengthening storm off the New England Coast and high pressure to our west will create sustained winds of 15-30 mph with gusts to near 50 mph. Despite sunshine, we will only reach the middle 30s but wind chills will be in the teens and 20s. (It will feel milder this morning… wind chills by afternoon will be in the teens.)

There could even be some flurries this afternoon.Thankfully, the storm off the New England Coast will push farther away while high pressure slides into the Mid-Atlantic Saturday, allowing the winds to subside. It will still be a cold day as temperatures struggle to reach 30 degrees, despite the efforts of sunshine. By Sunday, a new low pressure center in the Plains States marches toward the area. Clouds will increase and thicken with precipitation expected by late afternoon. With a fresh source of cold air in place thanks to high pressure over southeastern Canada, this storm has potential, but latest models show a more northwesterly track which bring back the potential for the wintry mix and possible more just rain southeast. Be sure to tune in for the latest updates as the Stormwatch 7 team tracks our next storm. Have a great finish to the new work week.
