I would not be surprised to see a minor overrunning event trend wetter for late Sunday into Monday.

12* with leftover snow on the ground and feeling like mid-January here. I've always thought early cold and snow over the Northeast helps with snow chances later in the season. The refrigeration efffect. Let's see how it pans out this year.

The first of hopefully many single digit and sub zero lows this season.

I agree Scott temp's look marginal for coastal areas but it seems like it wants to snow this winter. as I've said before I will lean on guidance that shows snow in the pattern that we're in. The CMC was the only model showing this system today and it was pretty consistent and it ended up being right.

Def have to keep an eye on late Sunday for an overrunning event.  NAM, CMC, RGEM, Euro all have it to some degree. Nothing huge.  Although HP to our N looks to be sliding off the NE coastline during this time frame there may be enough low level cold to produce some snow esp N&W as mid and upper level energy pass overhead.  As you can see the main pattern will be shifting to a more zonal flow with the northern jets and the STJ remaining separate and oriented E to W instead of meridional like we have had it.  Expect this general pattern into next week. A piece of energy originating over S Tx will ride up over the boundary and move over our area.  This may spawn what Im talking about.  We shall see.

I heard the euro control for Xmas was a big storm I saw the precip map but does anyone have the snow map just for fun. But I know there is possible storm signal too.

Funny how some, not on here, are complaining about the cold December so far and all reporting stations are now normal to -1.1 below for the month so basically normal to slightly below, and that's against the inflated 1981-2010 averages which are the warmest ever recorded.

We've grown soft, this is December as it should be, how quickly we forget.

It wouldn't be the first or last time the GFS is late to the party. I really hate that model. The CMC was upgraded and has has been better yet the GFS has been awful.

Very cool weather phenomenon going on here on the north shore. Temps today soared to a high of 47.6* here and into the low 40s across the sound in Birdgeport. Cold air remained trapped in Northern New England and has since bled down the valleys of CT leading to ZR all the way down to the CT coast as temps there have dropped to 32-31. It appears that air is now bleeding down across the sound as my temp has dropped from 46, to 37 and still falling in just a matter of an hour. Very cool stuff!

...Spotty freezing rain overnight into early Saturday morning...

Temps will continue to drop into the lower 30s overnight as cold
air drains down from Connecticut. With spotty drizzle overnight and
the next round of rain overspreading the region late tonight into
early Saturday morning, a few icy spots may occur where temperatures
drop to around freezing. Locations north of the Long Island
Expressway will be the most susceptible to this. Temperatures
should warm safely above freezing by around daybreak, ending any
icing threat.

CP, in my way of thinking, having this brutal cold without snow, is like one of your buddies coming over to play poker with your others and he forgot to bring the beer.I'd rather have 28 degrees at night with a snowstorm on the way of 16 plus inches.
