Temps Droppin' Like It Ain't Hot

Streaks of snow showers and flurries are pushing northeast along a mid level disturbance that's going to organize into a bigger storm in the Atlantic tonight and Sunday. This storm will bring more snow to Boston and the Southeast New England coast but doesn't organize fast enough to give us anything of note from a snow perspective.  However, the energy pieces that are feeding into the developing storm will work through today with areas of snow showers and flurries through the course of the day.

Precipitation will be light, perhaps steady at the heaviest, but accumulations will generally be in check through the day, very few spots should see an inch or accumulation on grassy surfaces, with coatings possible for many east of I-95.

Temperatures, which are in the 30's this morning as the sun rises, will not move much thanks to precipitation and north winds in the area drawing down colder air.  The result will be highs in the upper 30's this afternoon in the city and points south, with mid 30's to the west and northwest...significantly colder than yesterday.  Wind will not be much of an issue today but increases tonight as the storm intensifies in the Atlantic, leading to a blustery and cold Sunday in the Delaware Valley.
