Get ready for a more winter-like week (Jan. 30-Feb. 5) in Wilton with multiple chances for snow and cooler, more seasonable temperatures.

Monday, Jan. 30:  On Monday, it will be a chilly and mostly cloudy day with highs only a few degrees above freezing, but because of the gusty winds at times, it will feel more like the mid 20s. Also, a storm system will be moving across the Mid-Atlantic region, so the northern edge of that storm may bring some light snow to Wilton. There’s only a small chance for that happening, so don’t bank on any snow accumulations or travel impacts.

Tuesday, Jan. 31:  You can expect snow on Tuesday, however, from a second system moving across Southern New England. With this light snow, anywhere between a quick coating to two inches is likely to fall during the afternoon. Temperatures appear to be a couple degrees warmer than freezing while that snow comes down, so roads may remain wet. An early dismissal from school is still possible though.

Wednesday, Feb. 1:  Tuesday’s storm will clear out by Wednesday, leading to drier conditions for the rest of the week. Skies will go from partly cloudy in the morning, then to mostly cloudy around midday, then to mostly clear for the evening hours due to a strong west wind. Even though temperatures will be in the low to mid 40s, it will feel over ten degrees cooler due to that west wind gusting up to 40 mph.

Thursday, Feb. 2:  Winds will still be blowing strong on Thursday under sunny to partly cloudy skies. It will be cooler with temperatures only reaching the mid to upper 30s, but that’s average for this time of the year. It’s been pretty mild this month, so finally it’s back to reality for early February.

Friday, Feb. 3:  High pressure will begin to move east into the Northeast starting Friday. What high pressure does is bring sinking air. Whenever there is sinking air, that limits the development of clouds. Therefore, expect mostly sunny skies to end the work week but even cooler temperatures possibly below freezing for the entire day.

Saturday, Feb. 4:  That area of high pressure will continue to build into the Northeast region getting into this weekend, but it’s a cold high so even though more sunshine will be moving in, cooler temperatures will be working in as well. On Saturday, expect abundant sunshine with the deep blue skies shining above. Winds may be blowing strong again up to 40 mph. That combination with the cold will make for brutal conditions.

Sunday, Feb. 5:  Winds will be considerably weaker by Sunday–finally–featuring periods of sun and clouds and high temperatures still below freezing. That cold will be much more bearable, though, due to the significantly calmer winds.
