Today's Weather: Arctic Cold Will Lose Its Grip For Nicer Weekend; Sunday Brings Snow And Rain
The unseasonably cold air across the region will hang on for one more day.
Although thermometer readings will be just as cold today as Wednesday, the winds will be much lighter. High pressure is generally in control of the Northeast, but a weak front will bring a period of cloudiness this afternoon.
Friday and Saturday will feature mainly clear skies and light winds. But the return to sunshine will be short-lived.
A fast-moving storm will head into the Great Lakes region on Sunday. With marginally cold and dry air in place, the precipitation may start as a period snow before changing to rain in the afternoon.
Sunday night the rain will taper to drizzle and fog with partial clearing for the first part of the work week.
