As this storm strengthens off of the East Coast, it will set the stage for a windy and cold day on Friday with more clouds than sunshine along with snow showers. The snow showers will still mix with rain showers in the valley locations but there will be a slushy coating to an inch or so on grassy surfaces near and west of Route 219. Some gusts of wind on Friday will reach to 40mph. Highs will only be in the 30s to the lower 40s with the wind making it feel significantly colder than that. Very dry air will press into the region on Saturday which will help to give us plenty of sunshine. There will still be a brisk wind on Saturday with highs in the 40s. Sunshine will mix with clouds Sunday but it will turn out to be a milder day with highs in the 50s to near 60. The front will bring showers on Monday.
