Colder Weather Arrives To Start New Week
We are going to enjoy a rather nice day of weather overall on this Sunday however we do have cold air that is about to arrive and we are seeing some clouds around to the northwest of the coast. Yesterday’s round of mostly 1 to 3 inch accumulating snows are long done and we have what appears to be a dry cold week ahead of us. We are already close to the highs of the day temperature wise in the upper 30s and lower 40s and will likely hold there into this afternoon.
Regional radar is picking up on some lake effect snows that are going on in Upstate NY & Western Pennsylvania. Other than that weather conditions are going to be rather quiet today.

Skies will clear out tonight and we will see temperatures drop to the teens and lower 20s by morning as a cold high begins to build in from the northwest. Monday will be a sunny breezy but cold day with highs just in the upper 20s and lower 30s. We will be back down in the teens and lower 20s Tuesday morning.
Tuesday will be another cold day but with sunshine as highs reach the upper 20s and lower 30s. The cold high will be moving overhead on Wednesday so that will be another day of sunshine and highs mostly in the 30s. There are no major issues until the weekend. There is a bit of a split flow that develops across North America with a flow across Canada controlling colder air and a flow across the Southern half of the US controlling storm track.
I still haven’t quite figured out how this all plays as the split flow, if it remains separate, will mean a colder look for next weekend with low pressure heading to our south and a cold high building to the north. Armchair meteorologists I’m sure have this already all figured out but for now we have an open mind as to whether the flow stays split or not. Either way there are no major weather issues to speak of other than occasional passing clouds through the rest of this week.
