An upper level trough will linger over the region today with chilly temperatures and a mix of sun and clouds as a coastal storm passes well off the New England coast. Some lake effect snow will flare up again late tonight into Friday in areas to the north and west of the Capital Region, with a few snow showers or flurries possible elsewhere as the upper level trough swings east. Temperatures will begin to slowly moderate into the upcoming weekend, with a possible storm threat by early next week that will need to be watched closely.
