A moderating trend for Friday into the weekend. There will be plenty of clouds on the last day of January and first day of February, but temperatures should manage to reach the upper 40s with relative ease. That’ll provide us with a nice break from the firm grip that Arctic air has been holding us under much of the week.
The surface weather maps this weekend will have two primary features: a wave of low pressure that will be located in the Great Lakes region on Saturday morning and a ridge of high pressure which will be located in the western Atlantic. Therefore, the front that will be getting hung up over New York State on Friday night will begin to lift to the north on Saturday as a warm front, and with that body of low pressure expected to move through Quebec late Saturday night and Sunday, will be dragging a cool front through the Eastern Region on Sunday afternoon and evening.
What does this mean for us besides some “milder weather” for the upcoming weekend? Most of the time it should be dry.
