It’s another cold morning out there! The mesonet site in Draffenville dropped to 3° this morning, but thanks to southerly winds around 10 mph, we’ve already jumped up to 12° as of 8:30 AM.
We should continue to warm today due to those southerly winds. We should top out right around freezing today. This, combined with sunshine should help to melt away some of the snowpack.
Southerly winds tonight will help keep temperatures from bottoming out considering we’ll have clear skies. Instead of dropping into the single digits again, we should drop into the upper teens.
We should continue to melt away that snowpack on Friday as highs top out in the low 40s under sunny skies. Man, it will feel great out there! Clouds will be on the increase Friday night which will help lows only drop to around freezing.
The warmth will really begin to show up on Saturday as highs make it into the mid 40s under mostly cloudy skies. A few isolated showers may be possible Saturday afternoon and into the overnight hours. I’ll take the warmth, even if it brings a little rain!
That should wrap up this forecast. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
