We peeled a few degrees from yesterday's high temperatures today. And we'll shave off a few more in the days ahead.
Overall, the pattern remains on the quiet side, with frequent cool downs and rapid warmups as we sit in what we call "northwest flow" in the upper atmosphere. This setup keeps the cold coming from the (currently) snowless tundra of Central Canada. That's important because at this point in the season, cold reserves are wimpy; and although below normal, our temperatures are not expected to be record-setting or sub-freezing.
Over the weekend, a few random snow showers could visit us early on Saturday. As it goes with this quick-moving system, the greatest chance for flakes will be in the North Country. That said, there's a chance some spots may see flurries as far south as Massachusetts too.
Sunday is a cooler day with some Cape clouds that could grow into flurries or sprinkles. The winds turn more northeast late in the day, and our old friend the
"ocean-effect" should take hold. I'm not thinking any accumulation is possible, but I'm certain the clouds will likely swarm in the afternoon/evening.
