There’s a Chill in the Air…With No Snow.

The temperature dropped to 28° last night in Draffenville. This, combined with light northwest winds will keep temperatures quite chilly today. According to the HRRR model shown below, the high temperature will occur around 2 PM and be around 37°.

Temperatures could be very cold tonight. Given clear skies and northwest flow throughout the day today, I wouldn’t be surprised to see lows dip to around 20°.

The cold conditions will continue into Friday. High pressure will begin to settle into the region, producing fair conditions. However, light northwest flow will once again keep temperatures in the 30s.

Lows on Friday night will likely end up in the mid 20s. Cold, but not quite as cold as tonight. The NAM Model below depicts this perfectly.

Our snow chances for Saturday continue to dwindle. The system is expected to be too far to the northeast of the region. At this point, we’ll be lucky to see occasional flurries. Highs on Saturday will top out right around 40°, so any snow that does fall shouldn’t stick.

Saturday night lows will drop back to the low 20s thanks to the clipper system moving a weak cold front through the region.

That should wrap up this forecast. Be sure to follow along on Facebook and Twitter. Have a great day!
