High pressure is in control of our weather today and is responsible for the chilly start this morning. However, bright sunny skies will help boost our temperatures into the low 20s by this afternoon. Winds should generally be fairly light, so there is not much concern about wind chill today. Temperatures will drop quickly this evening before leveling off overnight as clouds move in and winds turn more southerly. These changes will be in response to an approaching 'clipper' system that will be racing southeast out of Canada. The timing of this system is a little uncertain, but most likely, snow will hold off until Thursday afternoon.
Like our snow earlier this week, I think this clipper system could be a little surprising. Generally, 2-5" of new snow should be expected, mostly Thursday night and early Friday. A few spots could see a bit more, especially if some lake effect lingers well into Friday southeast of Lake Ontario. Friday morning's commute will probably be rather sloppy. Cold air will settle in behind this system, with Saturday kicking off a stretch of high temperatures in the teens that will run well into next week. Additional snow is likely Sunday night through Monday, but exactly how much is still uncertain.
