A simple story ahead with high pressure anchored here in New England until Sunday. You can plan mostly sunny days & mainly clear nights. Our temperatures today will reach the low & mid 40s and then take a run at 50 by tomorrow afternoon. A cool front looks to drop into New England on Saturday sending afternoon temps back into the low 40s. See? Simple!
Sunday and beyond?.....Not so much. The pattern becomes active and a number of storms will take a swipe at us for the next 2-3 weeks! They won't all be snow or rain, likely a mix of both and the first one on the docket looks to be just that.
Here are some early thoughts:
*Storm affects region in the Sunday-Monday timeframe
*Look for patchy light snow/flurries on Sunday afternoon. Little to no accumulation expected
*Patriots game will feature flurries and/or sprinkles--not expecting any heavy rain or snow
*Monday will see the light mix of precipitation become steadier & heavier by afternoon & evening
*Looks like mainly a rain event for coastal cities & towns with snow farther inland
*Some plowing of the snow appears likely right now---along I-495 AND north of the MA Pike greatest risk of plowable snow
*Possible 2nd storm next Wednesday--more on that later!
Enjoy the peace & quiet weather!
