Discussion

Single digits are widespread this morning in the Northeast US and temperatures will struggle around here today to reach the upper teens despite plenty of sunshine. This air mass is comparable to some of winter’s worst from last winter with dozens of record or near record lows this morning (map courtesy coolwx.com). A repeat performance is in store for the next couple of days with yet another “clipper” system bringing snow showers into the Northeast US on Friday along with gusty winds and then bitter cold air will follow for the beginning of the weekend. Temperatures ease somewhat on Sunday and then moisture pulling out of the southern states could affect us with some snow, ice and/or rain during the early part of next week.
