Thursday afternoon will be partly sunny and much colder than average. Highs will be in the low 40s to near 45 degrees. Remember hats, scarves and gloves for the kids as they burn off some energy in the yard. Scattered flurries and snow showers are possible but will be of little consequence. More substantial snow is due later.

Thursday evening remains cold with increasing clouds. Temps will be in the upper 30s.

Sunset is at 8:17 p.m. ET.

Thursday night becomes cloudy with temps near or just below the freezing mark. A new system approaching from the west and southwest will bring snow showers a by dawn as moist air overrides the cold air at street-level.

Friday will be slippery, again, with snow showers. The mercury barely rises to 40 degrees.
