(PIX11 WEATHER CENTER) — Clouds will mix with sunshine Wednesday as another high pressure system will slowly drift southward out of Canada.

Temperatures will continue to run below normal for the next several days. Highs will be in the mid 30s Wednesday afternoon,  with some spots getting near 40 degrees.

A weak disturbance will pass southward through the tri-state area Wednesday night, bringing the chance of snow showers mainly north and west of the city. Little or no accumulation is expected with these as they move through.  Temperatures will be a bit colder as a reinforcing shot of arctic air moves into the area. Lows will fall to 18 degrees in the city, single digits for the suburbs.

Mostly sunny skies will dominate the weather for Thursday, as high pressure centers itself over our region. Temperatures will only rise to near 30 degrees in the afternoon, with spots staying in the 20s.  The cold air does begin to moderate on Friday as high pressure slides east of the region. This high will also help to deflect a storm system that will be moving offshore from the southeastern coastline.  Temperatures are expected to be a bit milder with highs approaching the low 40s.

Over the weekend, temperatures will try to reach near normal as southerly winds will bring mild air into the area. Highs will reach the mid to upper 40s with a mix of sun and clouds early in the period.
