Good Tuesday, everyone. It’s an absolutely frigid day across the Commonwealth and it’s one you would associate more with January than November. This cold pattern then eases later this week as a lot of rain and wind heads back into town.
Any snow showers and flurries today will be more prominent across the east. Coatings of snow means black ice will be a big issue to start the day. Additional travel issues may develop in any heavier snow shower later on:
Highs today stay in the upper 20s with a wind chill in the teens. Ouch!
The next system moves in on Thursday as the cold air starts to pull out of town. The leading edge of light rain may very well be in the form of sleet for a few hours.
From there, rounds of heavy rain and high winds target our region from Friday through the weekend:
Rainfall numbers of 1″-2″ are likely during this time. Winds will also be a major player and may cause issues. Those gusts may reach 40-50mph once again:
After that system rolls through, we start to make the transition into a very wintry look for next week. Arctic cold dives into our region and may bring an increase in snow chances:
This is a heck of a pattern we are in for so early in the winter season. Lots of action with frequent shots of arctic air will make for an interesting winter.
Make it a great Tuesday and take care.
