Wait for it....

33. That's 19 degrees below average! It was all thanks to Arctic high pressure on top of the region, but the thing that everyone will remember from today were the strong northwesterly winds gusting over 45mph(which made for a wind chill in the single digits most of the day!).

Overnight it will be mostly clear with lows around 20, but the wind will still be out of the northwest between 15-20mph. Friday we'll have a warm front push north and we'll get into a southwesterly flow. This will allow highs to reach the middle and upper 40s.

Overnight Friday into Saturday we will have a weak front pushing through to provide some light rain with lows in the upper 30s and highs in the middle 50s with sunshine by the afternoon. Come Sunday we'll be around 50 with increasing clouds as a system will ride up the coast from the south. This should mostly skirt by to our south and east, but provide some snow/rain mix in the early morning hours into the day Monday. Temperatures at Midnight shall be in the upper 30s, but fall throughout the day; my issue with the model guidance today was although the operational runs put out a few inches of snow the ensembles were about 50/50. Also, the precip would fall mostly during the day and the sun angle is higher than it would be in January; now that will be null and void if precip fell heavily, but also if high pressure is holding to the north it ca suppress the system further south as dry air wins out. It's almost reminiscent of the March 3rd event.
