Enjoy the milder weather through New Year’s Day as another shot of arctic air will be slamming into the Eastern U.S. beginning this weekend. An unusually intense upper level low pressure area will develop near the Canadian Maritimes into early next week, giving the cold air a big southward push.
This pattern evolution will also tend to supress southern stream moisture well south of here through the end of next week, meaning a long stretch of dry weather should accompany the chill.
Hints of a coastal storm around the weekend of the 10th, so will be fun to watch the computers on this.
