Happy New Year! We can expect a mix of sunshine and clouds today though it looks like the clouds will win out this afternoon. 2016 will start off dry and seasonable with temperatures near 40 today. With a bit of a west and northwest wind, we could see a few lake effect snow showers make their way to the area. We don't expect any accumulation as they'll be nothing more than conversational flurries.
Expect mainly cloudy skies tonight with temperatures dropping back into the lower 20s. The weekend is shaping up to be a dry and seasonable one with daytime highs in the middle 30s. It will become rather breezy around here on Sunday.
We are not expecting any storminess through the first week of 2016. In fact, though we start the new year with some low in the single digits, there are some signs that temperatures may moderate by the middle of next week as another ridges builds in across the eastern half of the country.
