Local DVM -
Good Tuesday evening, everyone! Today started with a few showers, but rain has slowly built eastward over the course of the afternoon and evening. We’ll continue to see showers as we head towards the first half of the night. Once we get beyond , we should be able to at least dry out and partially clear out with our cold front slowly pushing eastward. From there, we get a big taste of what winter is capable of…with regard to temperatures, at least. Highs on Wednesday will struggle to get out of the mid 40’s in many areas, but that’ll be mild compared to what we’re watching later this week. A reinforcing shot of cold air moves into the Northeast on Friday, sending temperatures even further down the thermometer. Daytime highs from Friday through Sunday might not get out of the 30’s.
At the same time, a quick moving clipper system will dive into the region. This is expected to come along on the first half of the weekend, and while the models are still in disagreement on just what kind of organization we may/may not get out of this low, there is at least the chance for some snow flurries in the area. We’ll continue to keep an eye on this as we head closer to the weekend.
Chilly weather will continue to hold in place through the start of next week.
Here’s a look at your extended forecast:
Tonight: Mostly cloudy with early rain showers, then gradual clearing after . Lows: 35-40. South winds turn to the northwest at 10 to 15 mph.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny and cooler. Highs: 43-48. West-northwest winds at 5 to 15 mph.

Friday: Partly sunny. Highs in the upper 30’s.
Saturday: Partly to mostly cloudy with a chance of snow showers. Highs in the mid to upper 30’s.
Sunday: Mostly sunny. Highs in the low to mid 30’s.
Monday: Mostly sunny. Highs around 40 degrees.

Have a great evening!
