Long stretch of winter weather

Chelsea Futurecast

Good afternoon!

Starting off the day with dense fog and a light drizzle. Visibility will be below a mile at times. Freezing drizzle is not a concern as temperatures have remained above freezing. Conditions will improve early this afternoon once winds begin to pick up out of the northwest.

Cloudy the rest of the day with highs in the low to mid-40s and near 50 farther south. Strong northwesterly winds gusting up to 30 mph will move in for the second half of the day causing temperatures to fall. Clouds will decrease this evening due to a high-pressure system. With mostly clear skies and NW winds, early morning lows will be in the teens.

The high-pressure system will have control over tomorrow's weather bringing a quiet and chilly day. Starting off with sunshine during the morning with clouds moving back in during the afternoon and evening. Highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s.

All eyes will be on a winter storm system arriving Friday. Winter weather will likely impact travel during the day. Due to the cold temperatures, precipitation will start off as snow. The low-pressure system will draw in warmer air from the south, so during the day, we will see a transition over to wintry mix bringing ice then switching over to rain. On the backside of the system, light snow will be possible Saturday morning, but the NW strong winds will have a bigger impact. We will start off the morning warmer than the afternoon and continue to fall to the single digits for low temperatures.
