A fair Thursday
Fog is the main concern early for Thursday as leftover moisture from the cold front lingers, but that should clear out before noon. Some weak energy aloft keeps varying amounts of clouds around for the day. It will be breezy for the north country and eastern areas at times as high pressure moves in. Southern areas may get some light wind gusts from time to time.
The sky clears out as we head into the evening. Expect a frosty start in The County to start Friday.
Weekend looks generally fair as well
Hurricane Epsilon stays to the east of Bermuda and heads off to the north Atlantic over the weekend. Swells from the storm could reach around 8 feet at their height Saturday morning along the shorelines. If you go the check out the surf, please do so at a safe distance. Waves can be unpredictable! Ocean temperature is cold and brings a threat for hypothermia.
A weak cold front passes through the region Saturday, which may bring a few showers to the north and mountains, and some clouds elsewhere. The front loses moisture as it heads eastward.
Sunday will be mainly sunny and cool as a Canadian high settles in.
Snow a possibility for interior areas early next week
High pressure quickly slides eastward on Sunday. A shortwave trough from the northwest digs in Sunday night into Monday. Interior areas could see some snow out of this Monday afternoon into early Tuesday, with rain possible for the coast. It's early to get into too many details or possible impacts, but it would be wise to stay updated on the forecast through the weekend.
