Thank You December
Evening snow showers will eventually taper to flurries and shut down overnight. Skies clear by first thing tomorrow morning leading to a sunny and less cold Wednesday. We will then take another step warmer Thursday but introduce more clouds.

Intense low pressure is moving into southern Quebec this evening heading north. The backwash of cold and moist air doesn't let up until tonight. Snow showers have already begun to taper to flurries this evening, and they will shutdown overnight yielding to clearing skies.
High pressure builds overhead Wednesday and moves off the coast Thursday afternoon. After a cold and windy start tomorrow morning the afternoon finishes less cold and windy. Thursday is another big step less cold as a milder southwest wind develops on the backside of the transitioning high.
Then it gets complicated. Low pressure develops in the northwestern Gulf tomorrow and slowly moves east eventually jumping to the Carolinas coast Saturday. Light rain develops Friday morning and continues through the day before mixing with and changing to snow in the wee hours of Saturday morning. Computer guidance is in disagreement regarding the speed of a trailing upper level feature moving east from the Mississippi Valley Saturday. We have cautiously excluded that slow option from the forecast cycle today. However, if it proves true Friday's rain will be delayed and continue into Saturday before changing over to snow late Saturday and continuing into Sunday. That would mean the weekend is a lot different than advertised. Stay tuned...
Either way, a clipper-type feature visits us from the north Sunday night dragging down colder air and brief snow showers or flurries Monday morning.
