Weekend Thaw

Recent sounds of winter include winds rattling the windows, ice pelting the ground, and even thunder!  But Saturday the only weather related sound you will hear is the ‘drip, drip, drip’ of snow and ice melting from rooftops everywhere. Temperatures will soar through the 40s with plenty of sunshine. Some towns may even flirt with the 50 degree mark! Sunday will remain mild with increasing clouds and the chance for a late day shower. But this warm up doesn’t last long, cold returns next week in phases.  30s are back as early as Monday. But “polar vortex cold” is in the forecast for late next week with temperatures diving back into the 20s.  That’s about 20 degrees below average for this time of year!  Winter isn’t over yet.

Tonight: Early shower. Clearing. Low: 25-30.

Tomorrow: Becoming mostly sunny. Mild, lots of melting. High temperatures in the upper 40s to around around 50 degrees.

Sunday: Partly to mostly cloudy. Chance for a late shower. High temperatures in the middle to upper 40s. Chance for flurries at night.

Monday: A mix of sun and clouds, cooler. High temperatures in the lower to middle 30s.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, chance for a snow shower. High temperatures in the upper 20s and lower 30s.

Wednesday: Watching the potential for yet another snow storm. Snow showers would develop in the morning and taper off around/after the evening commute.
