Frazzled Friday

By Gerard Roe
STAFF METEOROLOGIST

A near miss from a big storm churning offshore on Tuesday brought only a sprinkling of snow, but we are in that time of the year where these big storms rattle on toward us every few days, and on Friday we look to be set for another hit. At this early stage it seems there will strong warm advection ahead of the storm which will keep things as rain, but it is a tough call from this far away. It bears keeping an eye on though. For today and tomorrow however, clear skies and chilly nights will be the rule due to a high pressure settling over the region. Only skies clouding up late on Thursday will herald the potential trouble ahead.

Today: A cold start, then mostly clear skies and pleasant. Brisk winds from the north west. High 38F(4C)

Tonight: Clear and cold. Low 23F(-6C)

Thursday: Partly cloudy and less windy. High 35F(2C). Low 24 (-5C)

Friday: Precipitation likely. High around 35F (2C). Low around 20 (-7C)
