As of 322 AM EST Sunday...Quiet weather continues today with cooler but still above seasonal normal temperatures and increasing cloud cover as weak cold front slides south across the North Country before going stationary to our south. As the front shifts south, associated moisture will bring increased cloud cover and a chance of a sprinkle or flurry, especially across the higher terrain, but accumulation will be minimal at best. Models still show cooling of 3-4C from Saturday which will lead to high temperatures today in the mid 30s. Sunday night will continue to be quiet with continuing increased cloud cover ahead of the next system coming in later in the day Monday. Overnight lows will continue to seasonably mild with lows in the mid to lower 20s.
