Yesterday's snowfall totals fell way short of the predicted 2-4 inches. Still, the 1.1 inches observed in Central Park pushed this month's total to over eight inches. More impressive than the snowfall is that today will be the twelfth consecutive day with below normal temperatures. Despite sunny skies this afternoon's high will top out in the mid 30s.

Cold weather is going to fade away pretty quickly after today as high pressure moves in from the southwest. Thursday's high will be near the normal of 44 degrees. Despite some clouds and a slight chance of showers Friday is expected to warm to the lower 50s.

But, wait, there's more! The winter solstice will greet us on Saturday with a high in the mid 50s. Record high temperatures are possible on Sunday, the first full day of summer winter. The forecasts currently have Sunday warming to the lower to mid 60s. The record is 62 degrees set in 2011. A cold front on Sunday night should bring more seasonal weather early next week.
