Heavy snow and hazardous travel for portions of the Great Lakes, Northeast, and New England

Heavy snow, bitterly cold temperatures, and treacherous travel will be likely from the Great Lakes to the Northeast, and into New England over the next couple of days. Heavy Lake Effect snow of one to two feet will impact areas downwind of Lake Eerie and Ontario. Widespread snowfall of 6 to 12 inches will also impact much of northern New England. Read More >

A cold front moved through the region, which has ushered in much cooler temperatures (compared to Monday). Highs today will be in the upper 50s and lower 60ss, which is actually just about where we should be this time of year. Breezy winds this morning will gradually abate this afternoon to around 10-15 mph. Some occasional gusts to 20 mph will be possible.
A seasonably cool night is in store as lows dip into the mid and upper 30s across most locations. The most sheltered and outlying spots may dip into the upper 20s and lower 30s tonight. Winds will be light and out of the southwest at 5-10 mph.
Mild and dry conditions will continue through the second half of the week and into the weekend with temperatures near or above normal. The main concern throughout this time will be the elevated or critical fire conditions on Wednesday and Saturday as warm, dry, and windy conditions occur.
Here is the latest drought monitor for North and Central TX.
