Tuesday: Sunny and quite cold. High 31-33° Wind: N 1-7 mph.

FORECAST DISCUSSION: Another bitterly cold night is on the way as an Arctic airmass settles over the entire NE third of the U.S. Lows will drop into the mid teens across the area by sunrise Tuesday with gusty winds keeping wind chills around zero. Sunshine will continue Tuesday with highs only near freezing across the area. Clouds will increase Tuesday night and a dramatic warm-up will begin Wednesday as a strong south wind develops ahead of another cold front. Rain is likely Wednesday night and on Thursday with a good soaking likely. Most spots will see an inch or more of rain with wind gusts to over 27 mph. Temperatures will plunge again Thursday afternoon as the cold front passes.
In the long-range, Thursday night will turn much colder again behind a strong cold front, and highs Friday will not reach 40 degrees. Even colder air will arrive over the weekend with clouds increasing and perhaps some snow showers. The long-range forecast is very uncertain today because the numerical weather guidance is unable to pinpoint the exact position of the storm track beyond 5-7 days.
