Long Range

The late week period looks to remain on the warm side, with daytime temperatures staying above zero. Weather models suggest that another push of arctic air may be on the way for next weekend, though we can always hope that the models are wrong. At least we can say that no significant snow is currently in the forecast – but as today’s weather has shown us, winter is certainly not far off.
