It’s a very cold but dry start to our Saturday. If you’re planning on heading out to some local shops as part of Small Business Saturday, be sure to bundle up and break the winter gear out.

A snapshot of the entire northeastern United States at 5AM on Saturday shows the setup well. Notice those streaks of white and blue in upstate New York and Pennsylvania? Those are lake-effect snow bands as a result of northwest winds off the lakes. We’ll see gusty winds as well but the snow shower activity should remain to the north and west of our area.

Temperatures will struggle to reach 40 degrees on Saturday. Some spots will remain in the 30s all day long. We’ll remain dry and bright under mostly sunny skies. Winds will continue to gust up to 30 miles per hour.

Keep in mind for anyone that uses the bay and area waters, there is a Gale Warning in effect due to the gusty winds until 7am on Saturday.
