New Year’s Day will be partly sunny, brisk and seasonably chilly despite some sun. The high will be 42, and the low will be 28.
By Thursday night, some light snow will start to break out. The timing/phasing of two pieces of energy (one from the north and one from the south) are happening too late for big time blizzard-type snow over the I-95 corridor.
The coastal storm really bombs out Thursday night and if it hasn’t already started snowing by nightfall Thursday along I-95, it will shortly thereafter.
Snow is likely to continue at varying rates Thursday night, but by Friday morning the center of the storm is somewhere to the east of Nova Scotia.
If snow isn’t done by sunrise Friday, it is probably nothing more than a few flurries at that point. Behind the storm comes some of the coldest air we’ve seen in many years.
Friday will likely not get out of the teens during the day, even if there is some sunshine.
Wind shuts off later Friday night and Saturday won’t be as harsh, but it will still be cold.
