Strong Canadian high pressure is what’s helping keep our weather quiet through the weekend, and it will keep us quiet and cold all the way into next week as well. Very dry air will be brought in along with this high, so we’re looking at a decent bit of winter sunshine as well, a rarity for January in the Twin Tiers. Generally, highs will be in the 20’s with lows starting in the single digits and then the teens through Monday, with partly to mostly sunny skies. We’ll continue warming, all the way up to the 30’s, by Tuesday. A weak cold front will be swinging through late Wednesday into Wednesday night, though this isn’t going to be a massive snow maker at all. Outside of a few snow showers, this front will just drop temperatures slightly below normal for the rest of the week.
Our next big storm system isn’t going to arrive until after one more quiet and partly cloudy day on Thursday as we finish up a very quiet weather week overall. This next system still has plenty of question marks, but here’s what we’re looking at right now. Another weak clipper system will bring more cold air and some isolated snow showers for Friday, setting the stage for a low that will pass just to the south and then riding up along the East Coast. The biggest question will be if a high to our north will buffer down this low and keep conditions relatively quiet or if snow showers reach far enough north. For now, kept a chance of scattered snow showers for next Saturday until things become more clear.
