The low pressure area responsible for the fresh blanket of snow over the region this morning was well out into the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean early this morning. This will allow high pressure from the Canadian prairies to begin sliding southeastward, into the northern tier of the United States today. This high pressure area will remain in control of our weather through the end of the work week and into at least the beginning of the weekend. Generally fair, dry, and cold conditions are expected through this period, with temperatures below normal.
