Been a tough stretch to forecast: being on the edge of a very large storm, two small weak systems have made it challenging to say the least. And even today ... more clouds than expected as well.
Looking ahead, this weekend should be much easier. And early next week as well. It may get challenging at the end of next week (13/14). But there is lots to go through before then.
Friday: Mostly cloudy as a small compact system moves along NY/PA border bringing light snows to NY and then central New England. Another small system will remain well south of us. Maybe a brief rain shower.
Sat: Cold. Breezy. Sun and clouds.
Sun: Clouds increase. Chilly yet. But warming begins as nighttime temps don't drop much the afternoon highs.
Mon: Chilly air remains stubborn, as warm moist air flows NE from the deep south. Lots of moisture moving north so some light rain/drizzle is likely. Steady rain begin Mon night.
Tue: Heavy rains in the first half of the day. Then cold front races through. Much colder Tue night into Wed.
Wed: Arctic air invades. Cold. Windy. Flurries.
Beyond: Storm signal around the 13/14 of this month. With some deep cold air in place, we might be looking at wintry snow/ice. But will cold hold or will it flee away? We'll see.
