Rain will move out of the Tri-State later this afternoon and much colder air will be usher in. Tonight, skies become partly cloudy with some patchy fog in the area by daybreak. The low bottoms out around 36.
A trailing trough of low pressure will drag clouds into the area on Wednesday and give us a 20%- 30% chance of an isolated shower. We may even see a few flurries wafting around late Wednesday evening and we can't rule out an isolated snow shower but no accumulation is expected as moisture is limited and temperatures will stay above freezing until after midnight.
Climate data shows that by the first week in December we typically have seen our first snowfall as the average first date of measurable snow is November 29. The average date of our first 1 inch or more snowfall is December 15. With El Nino being a factor this winter, the lack of snow by now is not uncommon. Just wait though, snow is sure to develop within the coming weeks!
Over the next couple of days, temperatures will be more seasonal in the mid to upper 40s. High pressure will build back in Thursday as quiet and milder temps set up toward the weekend. Mostly sunny skies and rising temperatures in to the 50s return.
Isolated afternoon shower with slow clearing
Slight chance of isolated flurries or brief snow shower
