First Step Towards January In November

The first steps of our descent into the arctic abyss begins today -- breezy at times with a northwest wind, but with sunshine we will see temperatures nudge a bit higher from our starting point in the 40's in the city.

It's going to be a good bit cooler than yesterday, perhaps by as much as ten degrees.  We will be dry and shower-free in the region but there will be a chance of a snow shower or snow squall west of I-81 and north of I-80 tomorrow afternoon and evening.

Colder air will slowly make its presence felt at a greater level as the afternoon progresses, with temperatures beginning to slowly fall back as we approach mid and late afternoon. Winds will likely pick up a bit as well as the arctic influence moves on in.

Daytime highs will reach the upper 40's, perhaps near 50 in the city and point south. Winds generally hang in the 12 to 18 mile per hour range from the northwest, will gust a bit higher as we work into the evening hours with the intro of much colder air.
