Very wild, but we’re ringing in 2023 with umbrellas

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The current pattern will remain with us as we will enjoy mild air into the middle of next week! High pressure in the mid and upper atmosphere is dominating our weather right now and this is pushing the jet stream winds northward locking the arctic air in Canada.

We’ll watch a storm system move through the Mississippi valley today and into the northeast tomorrow. It’ll bring us a mild rain on New Year’s Eve. Awful timing for any outdoor activities and celebrations.
