How quiet can it get?
We are on a roll with day after day of sunshine, light wind, and comfortable temperatures.
The high pressure that brought the nice weather in, is moving out. But another, colder High Pressure, barges in Sunday night, for most of next week.
We are still on the quiet side Saturday, sun and clouds with highs in the 20s.
The transition day is Sunday, when an arctic front passes south with a coating of snow showers, and new colder wind during the afternoon.
Temperatures on Sunday will fall through the teens, and into the single numbers Sunday afternoon, and wind may become a factor.
A powerful storm with snow in Portland, Maine is a just miss for us this weekend, but it helps deliver that Sunday wind and chill. A few fluffy inches possible here with the arctic front early Sunday.
Arctic air is here Monday, the temperatures likely holds near zero Fahrenheit. The wind should diminish to tolerable, lift functioning, levels.
Another storm will miss us to the south Monday, but with 13 feet of snow so far this season and no recent warmth, we are in a good place for this coldest time of the year.
Late next week warms a bit, and starts to snow again.
