High pressure controls the eastern half of the nation for next of the day keeping us nice and dry. A cold front will drop south from Canada making it quite chilly for the weekend. Temperatures across Northern New England and Upstate New York will get cold enough to get some flakes for the first time of the season.

Clouds associated with a weak cold front will gradually thin out during the overnight period. Temperatures in the city will drop to around 50 degrees with 40s likely elsewhere.

Thursday will be a pleasant fall day featuring lots of sunshine as high pressure drifts into the Ohio Valley. Highs will be right where they should be in the low to mid 60s.

A quick moving cold front will sweep across the region on Friday giving a shot of some showers. Temperatures are expected to be in the mid 60s.

The front will usher in an unseasonably chilly air mass from Canada for the weekend. A secondary wave of low pressure will pass well north giving the chance for some snow across the higher elevations of the Adirondacks, the Green & White Mountains of New England.

Here, in our neck of the woods, gusty winds will kick up from the north keeping us in the mid to upper 50s. Overnight, temperatures will go down into the upper 30s. Many of the surrounding suburbs will get their frost/freeze of the season.

On Sunday, Temperatures will struggle to get pass the 50 degree mark in the city. Much of the surrounding suburbs will most likely not get out of the 40s. Add in a northerly breeze and that will make it feel much cooler.

Next week, the Canadian high moves offshore and a southwesterly flow develop. That will allow temperatures moderate back into the mid 60s by Wednesday.
