Rain this morning will taper to just a few showers or a bit of drizzle as milder air returns on southwesterly winds.
Winter storm warnings, ice storm warnings, and winter weather advisories are up all across the eastern part of the state and New England with this storm. There are also blizzard warnings up for much of the upper Midwest. Make sure to check the weather forecast at these locations before any travel.
Expect temperatures into the lower if not middle 50s by this afternoon. This massive and very slow moving storm system will eventually start to meander to our north and that will allow for cooler air to move through Monday night into Tuesday. Rain showers taper off and a brief lull in precipitation is expected headed into New Year’s Eve. This will allow temperatures to drop fully into the 30s and the cold air that will be in place once this storm is to our north will help aid in snow showers overnight into New Year’s Day.
