High pressure will remain in control of the region’s weather through the midweek period, bringing mostly sunny days, and mostly clear and frigid nights. As the high pressure crests over the region on Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning, temperatures will be at their lowest. Wednesday morning could start out below zero across the north country and rural areas.

A coastal storm looks to develop across the southeastern United States on Wednesday. The ultimate track of this storm is still quite unclear. In addition, an Arctic clipper system looks to be descending from the Canadian prairies into the upper Midwest and upper Great Lakes through this time. The clipper system may act to divert the coastal storm further east, thus creating more of a ‘glancing blow’ to our region, as opposed to a full out winter storm. More details on this situation will be made available in later forecasts.
