There could be some sleet or snow this morning just before the full commute is underway between 5AM and 7AM. After this time I expect skies to clear and plenty of sunshine along with temperatures in the 30s.


A chilly night Friday night will be dry as temperatures fall into the 20s. This will set the stage for another round of snow Saturday. There will be a big ocean storm passing to our east Saturday afternoon and evening. The storm looks to be far enough away so the heaviest precipitation will remain over the ocean. However, we could see enough snow on the western side of the storm to give a coating up to 3 inches of snow depending on how close to the area the storm comes.

I want to get a look at the trend of the computer models tonight and Friday to determine if I lean for a coating or a few inches. If the storm comes closer, some areas could see 3 to 6 inches of snow. This is still a fluid forecast so check back again tomorrow.

On Sunday, behind the storm, colder air works into the region. Highs will only be in the 20s with brilliant sunshine and some wind. Next week finally turns milder with highs moving through the 30 and into the 40s by Thursday. Along the way to the milder air I do expect some light rain or snow, but present indications are for no significant storms next week. The good news is the sun is now as strong as it is in late October and will melt some of the snowpack each passing day. I have 20 inches on the level as of 4PM and that isn’t going anywhere right away.
