We’ve got a fairly unsettled and milder weather pattern expected across the region through the upcoming week with several storm systems producing periods of various sorts of precipitation. A weak low and trailing cold front passing north of the border tonight will bring some light rain and snow to the area, along with gusty south to southwesterly winds. Two potentially stronger systems on Sunday night and again Tuesday night through Wednesday will bring more mixed precipitation along with strong winds.
We’ll see mostly sunny skies this morning becoming mostly cloudy this afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 30s with south winds 10 to 15 mph and gusting up to 30 mph this afternoon.

About Today’s Photo:
A rabbit was about early this morning bounding from our patio steps across the backyard to Fargo Brook. I like the way the long morning shadows play across this image.
