Forecast for Sunday, December 30, 2012

Any leftover snow or rain showers will end this evening. There will be some patchy drizzle or even freezing drizzle along with areas of fog for at least part of the night before drier air comes in. As the area of low pressure rapidly deepens to our northeast and an area of high pressure begins to build in, the pressure gradient should begin to tighten bringing breezy conditions to our region. Skies will be overcast for a good part of the night, but an eventual decrease in clouds is expected by the early morning hours.

Sunday will be windy and mostly sunny. I cannot rule out isolated snow flurries, especially in the Poconos. Wind gusts could approach 45 MPH for a time.

Monday Night (New Years Eve) into Tuesday, the first in a series of cold fronts will move into the region. This could lead to the development of some snow or rain showers or just some spotty flurries. There are some additional weak cold fronts that may bring a few snow flurries for Wednesday and Thursday. Some of the coldest air of the winter season is on the way for the end of the week and the beginning of next weekend.
