The Nor'easter will continue to pull away from the viewing area tonight, but it certainly left its mark. Over the last two days parts of the viewing area have seen wind gusts in excess of 50 miles per hour, 1" to 3" of snow, .10" to .25" of ice and .5" to 1.5" of rain. However, Tuesday was less eventful of the last two days and conditions will continue to improve overnight. So for tonight, look for a sprinkle in spots this evening, then for the skies to become partly cloudy toward daybreak. Winds will diminish, but remain noticeable overnight as temperatures bottom out near 30 degrees.

Although there were brightening skies in western parts of the viewing area on Tuesday, the sun really never made an appearance without a veil of clouds in front of it. Wednesday the sunshine will finally return without that veil of clouds in front of it. On top out that, temperatures will make a run at 50 degrees. Overall, a pretty nice late-January day to get us over the hump of the work week.

Late Wednesday night into Thursday a cold front will pass through the region and bring with it the opportunity for a rain (possibly snow in higher terrain) shower. The precipitation won't amount to much with just a few hundredths to a tenth of an inch expected. Otherwise, highs will make another run at 50 degrees on Thursday, but the day won't feature nearly as much sunshine as Wednesday. Thursday will also become increasingly windy as the front exits to the east.

In the wake of that front, Friday will be a chillier, but more seasonable day with highs near 40 degrees and a brisk, westerly wind. There may also be a few flurries or snow showers around on Friday, especially in the Poconos. Temperatures remain closer to normal (mid and upper 30s) this weekend with times of clouds and sunshine.
