Cold air will rush into the region Saturday night behind a strong cold front and stay in place through at least mid-week.  It will be breezy from Saturday through Sunday night (with Sunday downright blustery!) making it feel much colder. 

For most of the area this system will not bring a lot of precipitation with it, but lake effect snow is possible for the snowbelt. There is still uncertainty with respect to the potential snowfall from lake effect.  While the temperatures aloft will certainly be cold enough for the lake effect, there is uncertainty as to how much moisture will be with this system.  Typically an arctic airmass like this is accompanied by rather dry air which is not good for prime lake effect.

The temperature outlook (at right) shows below normal temperatures for the Great Lakes to New England from January 22nd - 26th.

Saturday Night: The cold front arrives Saturday night bringing the      start of the coldest air of the season so far. Winds will pick up and it will be breezy.

Sunday           : Little temperature recovery, if any.  It will be very windy making if feel even colder.

Sunday Night  : Continued breezy and cold.
