The snow squalls that pulsated southeast through the region this morning have moved off the coast. We could see a few flurries through the day but the threat of snow is over. These snow streamers were caught up in the northwest flow that we are experiencing. We will continue to see these gusty northwest winds through the day today possibly gusting up to 45 mph in spots. This will bring wind chills down considerable, feeling more like the teens to the 20s as opposed to our actually air temperature that will top out around 40 degrees. High pressure continues to build in from the west (and the interaction between that and the exiting area of low pressure off the New England coast is making for the windy conditions). Sunshine will remain today and clear skies will follow tonight. Winds will calm this evening making our overnight low even colder, in a range from the upper teens to mid 20s. Tomorrow, high pressure will move offshore bringing winds back from the south. This will bring our daytime high into the lower 50s/upper 40s. Clouds increasing through your Thursday but on the dry side. By Friday, temperatures will move into the lower 60 as a cold front approaches. That cold front will trigger some rain showers in the region during Friday afternoon and evening. An area of low pressure will track to the region along that cold front on Saturday bring us even more rain showers on Saturday. Saturday should still be a mild day. Clearing will take place through the day on Sunday as temperatures slip back into the upper 50s for daytime highs.
