Decent little snowstorm for the Cape/Islands last night with many towns picking up between 2-4" of snow. Once you step off the Cape, the totals really come down fast with a coating in Plymouth-Taunton to nothing at all from Stow to Boston & points north. This storm is a fast mover--already out by the Georges Bank and this means a lovely winter day in store with partly to mostly sunny skies. Temps will reach the mid 40s with little to no wind.
We get to hold onto the mild weather this evening & overnight thanks to a batch of clouds sliding into New England. If tonight is date night, plan on temps starting near 40 then settling into the low 30s by midnight. Dry weather is expected despite all the clouds.
Friday will start with that same batch of clouds but sunshine will find holes in those clouds to allow for at least a partly sunny sky. Even with partial sunshine, temps make a nice run well up into the 40s by afternoon. Melting more of #Nemo's snow--in fact, since Monday morning most towns have already lost over half of the snow from the storm---a testament to that strengthening February sun.
As we work into the weekend, an arctic front will blast into New England during the day. This will result in a snowy Saturday for all of southern New England. It won't be a blizzard but plan on snow from about 7am Saturday until 3pm. In terms of snowfall potential, many towns will pick up 2-3" of snow by 3pm Saturday. We can handle that. Blustery & cold weather for Sunday.
