Possible Snow and Definite Cold – Huge Changes on the Way
Parts of the east coast and Midwest are in for the coldest temperatures of the season. After an unseasonably warm week for most of the U.S, temperatures are going to take a big dip by the weekend. For some, it could be the coldest morning since Spring and their first frost or freeze of the season.
The weekend’s cold air is moving in with a strong cold front from Canada. This will shift winds out of the NW and force air over the mountains. The lift could produce some snow showers in the interior Northeast and possibly flakes in the Great Lakes. Accumulation through Sunday will be meager with the exception of higher elevations.
If snowfall is recorded this weekend, it comes early in the season. The average first snowfall is October 23rd in Caribou, ME, November 4th in Burlington, VT, and November 5th in Buffalo, NY.
