SATURDAY DAWNS BITTER COLD… A SHIFT IN THE WIND WILL BRING IN MILDER AIR ON SUNDAY… THERE MAY BE SOME PRECIPITATION LATE ON SUNDAY

The large high pressure area that is responsible for bringing the bone-chilling arctic air into the Eastern States is centered overhead at the time of this writing. This means 1) that winds will be on the light side 2) has caused a large drop in temperatures on Friday night due to the clear skies and light winds 3) here’s the good news… the high is moving offshore which will cause our winds to eventually swing around to the south… and you know what that means… milder weather. No heat wave by any means… but a return to temperatures that are closer to seasonal norms. Now, attention turns to a clipper system moving across the northern tier of states and the expected development of a coastal low off the SC coastline. All this should cause an increase in cloudiness on Sunday with some light rain late in the day or at night. Temperatures should be too warm for snow as the southerly wind component brings in milder air. (Sorry, snow lovers!) Precipitation amounts should be on the light side into Monday morning. There is a slight chance of a snow shower in some spots on Monday morning. I’ll have more on that in my Sunday morning post.
