Another in the series of fast moving cold fronts will sweep through the region today bringing increased clouds, breezes. There is also a chance for showers of rain and/or wet snow to the north and west of the Capital Region. High pressure builds into the region through the afternoon hours, behind the frontal system.
A very chilly airmass will be ushered into the region beginning today, and will be reinforced by a secondary cold front scheduled to pass through the region by Monday afternoon. Behind this system, a larger ridge of high pressure looks to build in for the midweek period, with very chilly conditions expected.
Temperatures will slowly begin to moderate by the end of the week, and going into the next weekend. Unfortunately, this warm up looks to come with a chance of showers as a more potent system approaches the region.
