Snow showers associated with a weak clipper system will pass through the area today. Many people could see some light snow fall by the evening, a taste of a much-anticipated winter. The snow should not stick, even on grassy surfaces. Another clipper will pass to the north of us New Years Eve, giving us a similar scenario as today. Arctic air will invade the region on the 2nd after a weak cold front passes through the area (with more snow showers).
Tuesday and Wednesday will be very very cold. Low temperatures could go into the single digits in some places with highs not even getting out of the 20s. This will be our first real arctic freeze of the season. By Friday, a storm system will head out to sea and bring back some warmer air. The temperatures should remain in the low 40s and upper 30s into next weekend and beyond.
