PM Update: Still chilly, but headed warmer
Milder and benign weather continues through the week
Morning clouds have given way to increased sunshine during the day in most spots, but temperatures have not responded too much to the sun. Highs mostly in the mid-30s are still a good 5-7 degrees below normal, but we're headed in the right direction for those ready for a break from mid-winter cold. Tonight and tomorrow will bring worry-free weather to the area, and that continues through the work week as temperatures moderate.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): We start to climb out of the cold tomorrow under mostly sunny skies. Though temperature could still fail to reach the averages for this time of year, highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s will feel relatively warm compared to recently. A modest wind from the northwest, shifting to west, continues.
December's historic storm: The December 19 snowstorm will likely be talked about for quite some time. Last week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released its preliminary ranking of the event. Classified as a NESIS Category 3, it was only one of five major storms ranked category 3 or higher during the last decade. While the storm was historic in this region, lighter snowfall amounts in NYC and Boston helped keep the official rating down a bit.
