Delay No School Early Dismissal

9PM Wednesday

After a fairly wintry December, winter appears to be taking a break for the new year. This "break" is the result of a significant warm pattern that began about a week ago. For the first three weeks of December, our average temperature was three degrees below normal. During that time, Kingston saw 14 inches of snow and three snow days. However, temperatures during the last week of December were eight degrees above average which resulted in more rain than snow. We saw this with our storm that dropped nearly an inch of rain earlier this week. This first week in January will end on another wet note with above normal temperatures.

Expect dry conditions on Thursday. We could see some breaks of sun before clouds begin to increase late in the day. The clouds will give way to rain Friday morning. Expecting rain to develop before sunrise on Friday and continue through the morning. Could see some rain showers during the afternoon, but best chance for rain will be in the morning. Any dry conditions Friday afternoon/night will end Saturday morning as a stronger surge of rain moves in. Expecting rain Saturday morning through Saturday evening. Can't rule out some wet snowflakes Saturday night as the storm taper off. Not expecting any snow accumulations at this time. Clouds linger through Sunday, and we can't completely rule out some scattered drizzle or flurries Sunday and Monday. Again, not expecting any snow accumulations. Expect temperatures in the low 30s to low 40s through the weekend. Normal temperatures for this time of year are 15 to 35 degrees.

Currently, there doesn't appear to be any appreciable snow on the horizon through at least the end of next week. The current warm pattern appears likely to continue through the first half of January.
