Saturday’s First Warning Forecast: Tracking the mildest day of the week
Temperatures will warm up a bit today. This will actually be our mildest day of the next 7 days. Expect temperatures to warm to the mid and upper 40s. Most areas should stay dry, but keeping a 20 percent chance for a few flurries Saturday afternoon especially in the far northern communities of the viewing area (Eastern Shore and Northern Neck).
An arctic front will move through late Saturday and it will pack a punch. Expect plummeting temperatures with highs in the upper 20s to near 30 for New Year’s Eve. Conditions will turn frigid and windy Sunday night. This isn’t the best news for folks heading out to celebrate the new year. Temperatures will dip into the teens, but it will feel close to zero once the wind is factored in.
The first day of January is going to be a cold one! Temperatures will struggle to even get out of the 20s. This could potentially be one of the coldest days this season for us. We could see a little ‘bay effect’ snow on Monday. Not looking at anything major or anything that will accumulate.
We are keeping our eye on a potential system for late next week. Right now, it is looking mainly dry, but it is still too far out to say for sure.
