Another near miss

From, a dog frolics in the snow across the deep south yesterday as they continue to have our winter!

Low pressure will move from Cape Hatteras, North Carolina to well east of Long Island, NY tonight. Snow has spread from the deep south through the middle Atlantic and into coastal New England today with up to 10cm of wet snow expected. Winds will be strong out of the northeast up to 80km/h. This weather will move into Maine and coastal New Brunswick and Nova Scotia tonight. Meanwhile strong high pressure will build into the St. Lawrence Valley with spring weather for Montreal. The only fly in the forecast will be gusty northeast winds from that Atlantic Ocean storm. They will blow out of the northeast in the order of 20 to 40km/h today making it feel cool and capping the temperature at 2 or 3C. Abundant sunshine will last into the weekend with warm temperatures, well above freezing during the day and just below at night, reaching 8C by Saturday. Yesterday it was colder in parts of Georgia and Alabama than it was in Montreal. Snow fell in Atlanta, closing roads and schools as the bizzaro winter of 2009/10 rolls along.
