It appears that the extreme cold that was expecteded to spawn low pressure directly over us will to stay over the Appalachians and our area will be indirectly affected by that initial upper air impulse. The secondary coastal low is now expected to form offshore, and both will be too far south and then too far east to directly affect us. There continues to be differences in the models regarding the amount of showers/snow flurries, but the trend has been that much, if not all, will miss us.
It will get colder and WINDY, but the chance of light snow showers here is looking slimmer and slimmer.
An unsettled weather pattern develops over the weekend, as a deep upper air trough in the middle of the country closes off over the Great Lakes and a cyclonic flow affects our area Saturday through the early part of next week.
The cold front associated with this upper trough moves through Saturday morning with some rain, ending about noon. The unstable cold flow aloft will bring windy conditions and instability cloudiness on Sunday.
