Discussion

As yesterday’s storm pulls farther away into southeastern Canada, high pressure will build into our region from the Midwest and today will feature plenty of sunshine; however, temperatures will be way below normal for this time of year struggling to rise above the freezing mark. Winds will stay on the strong side out of the northwest throughout much of the day, but as high pressure builds in overhead, the winds should drop off quickly this evening. Colder-than-normal weather will continue on Friday and Saturday with sunshine each day and light winds. Meanwhile, Comet ISON will make its closest approach to the sun today and we’ll have a much better idea on Friday as to whether it will still be able to put on a great viewing show for us during the month of December.
