Clouds replacing sunshine today come complete with a narrow band of rain showers that only last about three hours in any given spot, starting mid-morning to mid-afternoon, west to east respectively.
This means most of the showers should be gone by the evening commute, though southeast Massachusetts may have some showers still exiting. Skies clear tonight, but a steady breeze and slow enough decline in temperature should preclude black ice from developing, except perhaps where some snow showers fall overnight near the Canadian border.
Tuesday dawns with sunshine, and though the day will be noticeably cooler with highs in the 40s instead of Monday's 50s, no precipitation is expected as clouds thicken during the afternoon.
Our next storm arrives Tuesday night into Wednesday, with a burst of snow overnight Tuesday night in northern New England changing to a mix by dawn Wednesday, and perhaps some pockets of overnight freezing rain for deep interior southern New England turning to all rain for most by morning Wednesday. Wednesday periodic rain will be accompanied by mild air, a gusty wind and perhaps some thunderstorms before ending as mountain snow showers late.
Thursday and Friday bring colder air - and a hit from a storm south of us Friday would mean snow, but right now we're forecasting a narrow miss. This weekend will be fair and cool ahead of another warm-up by the end of the exclusive 10-day forecast period.
