The weather for the next few days will be dominated by the convergence of two weather systems. A very large and powerful storm developing off the coast of the Carolinas will head out to sea before impacting on us too much. The glancing blow will however bring strengthening winds towards evening and a likelihood of an overnight flurry or spinkle along the coast. In the wake of the departing storm temperatures will fall a little as the colder air is drawn southward, and an Alberta clipper-like storm will move in from the west bringing some flurries Thursday night and Friday morning. The skies do not look like clearing much before the weekend.

Today: Mostly cloudy. Winds out of the east becoming blustery during the afternoon. High 38F (3C).

Tonight: Windy. Chance of a flurry or a sprinkle in the evening. Low 30F (-1C).

Thursday: Continued mostly cloudy. Winds out of the north. Chance of an overnight flurry. High 39F (4C). Low 28F (-2C).

Friday: Chance of a flurry early. Then clearing. High around 35. Low around 25F (-4C).
