Low pressure off the New England coast will drift slowly eastward today. A disturbance in the upper levels of the atmosphere will drop southward around the back side of the departing coastal storm, passing through the eastern Great Lakes today. This system will have very limited moisture to work with, however some light snow or flurries will be possible across the entire area today. Lake Erie is only partially ice covered so some lake enhancement will be possible across the snow belt, but amounts will remain quite light.
High temperatures this afternoon will rise to the mid to upper 30s.
Snow flurries will end tonight as high pressure builds across the area from the west. Lows will dip into the upper teens.
On Friday, sunshine is expected as the high drifts overhead. It will still be on the cool side for this time of year with highs near 40 degrees.
The high will shift to our east on Saturday. A southwesterly flow of milder air on the backside of the high will overspread the area during the day. Under partly sunny skies, high temperatures Saturday afternoon will rise to around 50 degrees.
Clouds will begin to increase on Sunday ahead of our next weather maker. It will remain mild however with highs on Sunday reaching the mid 50s.
