Overnight, with a clear sky and lighter wind, temperatures should drop to near freezing for many areas, with the upper 20s in the typically cooler outlying areas. Wednesday will start off dry and mainly sunny, but as the afternoon unfolds a fast-moving disturbance and cold front will drop in from the north, bringing clouds and rain showers to the region under a milder west wind. The main story, on Thursday, will be the strong winds behind the front. Wind speeds will increase to around 30 mph with gusts approaching 50 to 60 mph along and between the Allegheny Front and Interstate 81. Breezy conditions will likely continue into Friday as slightly cooler air arrives. Currently, the weekend is looking nice for early December, as it will be dry and partly cloudy. Late Sunday night and into Monday, attention turns to the system that may be impacting the eastern third of the country early next week. It is still too early to get the specifics down, but we could have a storm along our coast, or the potential for no storm if a few weather components are displaced far enough away from each other. Regardless of any moisture heading this way early next week, it looks like we are headed back into the deep freeze as temperatures are forecast to drop drastically next Tuesday. Stay tuned to the WDVM Weather team throughout the period, as we track next week’s system.
