A weak disturbance will pass to our south today as it tracks from the mid-Mississippi Valley towards New England. This system will only slightly interact with a stronger storm moving off the Mid-Atlantic coast to produce a few more flurries than it would otherwise.

Our weather could have been a lot more active today if these two systems had linked up into one storm, but the variables didn’t match up this time.

A coating of snow will be possible from these flurries, but nothing much more. Temperatures will be cold, with highs struggling into the mid teens.

High pressure will work in overnight, gradually eroding the cloud cover away. The clouds should help keep temperatures from falling much past zero.

Friday will be increasingly sunny, but no warmer, with highs again in the mid teens. Clear skies and calm winds Friday night will let the temperatures drop below zero, but sunshine Saturday should quickly warm things up for the weekend.
