Arctic high pressure will remain in control through tomorrow morning with scattered cloud cover and frigid conditions. Winds will be from the northwest at 10 to 20 mph through tomorrow morning. With temperatures ranging from the upper 10's to mid 20's for highs and single digits to lower 10's for lows, wind chill temperatures will range from negative single digits to lower 10's.
An area of low pressure will pass to the south of the New York City and Philadelphia metropolitan tomorrow evening through early Saturday morning with scattered snow showers and periods of light snow along the coast. While most locations can expect a coating to an inch of snow throughout the region. However, closer to the coast there will be a greater potential for a few snow bursts and steady light snow leading to accumulations as much as 3 inches or more. Snowfall amounts over 3" will be very rare and unlikely but still a threat. Winds will back from the northeast to northwest at 5 to 15 mph. Temperatures will fall into the mid to upper 10's for lows throughout the region.
High pressure will shift from the Great Lakes to the Mid Atlantic coast Saturday afternoon through Tuesday with slowly moderating conditions. Scattered cloud cover can be expected but areas of fog in the morning hours, especially on Monday morning. Temperatures on Saturday and Sunday will range from the single digits to lower 10's over the interior and mid to upper 10's along the coast for lows and lower to mid 20's over the interior upper 20's to lower 30's along the coast for highs. On Monday, temperatures will moderate into the upper 10's to lower 20's for lows and upper 30's to lower 40's for highs. On Tuesday, temperatures will continue to moderate into mid to upper 30's for lows and mid to upper 40's for highs.
Periods of rain can be expected on Wednesday as an area of low pressure lifts through the Great Lakes. Temperatures will rise well above normal with lows in the mid to upper 30's for lows and lower to mid 50's for highs.
