    Dry and moderately chilly weather will prevail for the Middle Atlantic region and southern New England for the rest of the week. A warming trend that spreads into the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley Friday and Saturday will be delayed in the Northeast by an onshore flow coming around a high pressure that will be over northern New England on Saturday. In fact, as that cold high pressure area approaches, the flow ahead of it will cause some limited lake-effect snow downwind from lakes Erie and Ontario. Temperatures will be hard pressed to get above freezing from east-central New York state through central and northern New England on Friday. This video has more:

    Early next week looks to be much milder than usual for early December. This upper air flow forecast shows why, with the flow in the Northeast coming from the Southwest.

    The pattern temporarily reverses later in the week, and a cold shot looks it will replace the warmth. However, the cold air mass may come then leave rather quickly.
