Winds will begin to shift into the north tonight, behind a southward moving cold front. Those northerly winds will draw in colder and drier air, which will set the stage for a quiet weather weekend in CNY.
That drier air will be in the lower and middle atmosphere. We will continue to have cloud cover through Saturday with a small chance for light snow Sunday morning. During the afternoon Sunday, high pressure will put an end to any snow and even provide for some peeks of sun. However, temperatures won’t recover much as a cold northwest flow persists over New York, which will keep this weekend’s high temperatures in the mid 30s. Normally for this time of year, the highs should be in the low 40s.
The next system that we are keeping an eye on is another area of low pressure that will trek across the northern United States towards us for the start of next week. This means we could see another mix of rain and snow Monday and Tuesday with high temperatures nearing 40. Unfortunately, once the system passes we should remain cold for the rest of the week. However, it is still early and the details may change, so check back as we approach next week.
