Last week, the average temperature in Kingston was around 12 degrees. This was bookended by a weekly high of 28 on Tuesday and a weekly low of 6-below-zero on Thursday. The upcoming week will feature much milder temperatures. Generally speaking afternoon temperatures look to reach the 40s this week.

Right out the gate, the week looks to start off mildly. On both Monday and Tuesday, clear skies and a southerly wind will allow temperatures to approach 50 degrees. A passing frontal boundary Monday night will allow for clouds and perhaps a passing rain shower before sunrise on Tuesday. But the clouds clear Tuesday afternoon. Late Tuesday, slightly cooler air behind the frontal boundary will eventually work its way in to the region. This will allow for cooler overnight temperatures falling back into the 20s. Wednesday will feel cooler with temperatures "only" getting up to near 40, which is slightly above normal for this time of year. During the second half of the week, a surge of moisture from the south will lead to increasing rain chances and temperatures. Looking for progressively increasing temperatures Wednesday through Friday with rain showers possible Thursday and Friday. Thursday and Friday don't look to be complete washouts, but rather we're likely to see waves of moisture move through with possible lulls in between. At the moment, these waves of moisture appear most likely Thursday morning, followed by a lull; Thursday night followed by a lull; and then Friday afternoon. Still several days out, so these are just approximate timings, but main idea is it doesn't appear to be one long steady rain. Early Thursday morning, we'll have to watch temperatures as they could dip near freezing, potentially resulting in light freezing rain. Big cold front drops through Friday night into Saturday, with cold weather returning for the weekend.

Looking even further ahead to next week,
our weather pattern looks to become more active. At this time, Kingstonsnows is tentatively eying the potential for a parade of storms over the course of next week. The first of these storms looks to be in the Monday-Tuesday timeframe, and could potentially bring an accumulating snowfall. Will simply mention this early potential and continue to monitor - updates will be posted through this week as needed.

Season Forecast

Kingstonsnows is formally forecasting a total of 34 inches of snow this winter, with a likely range of 22 to 46 inches. This forecast is below the average seasonal total of 44.8 inches.

Although the forecast anticipates a likely range of 22 to 46 inches, there is about a 25% chance of less than 22 inches of snow, and a 25% chance of more than 46 inches of snow. It is important to remember that it only takes one well placed nor'easter to dump significant snowfall. Additional details about how the forecast is made can be found HERE. We'll see how the forecast holds up by April!
