New England sees a break-in-the-action today, so to speak, between one disturbance leaving and another moving at us from the west - the result will be emerging sunshine through clouds with highs in the 50s.
Near the coast, clouds will be the most stubborn, thanks to a weak northeast wind, but all of New England at least sees drier, milder weather than the last couple of days.
An energetic disturbance responsible for thunderstorms in Chicago yesterday and two inch per hour snow in Minnesota today will move east, prompting rain showers overnight tonight in New England that will change to a burst of Thursday morning snow in Central and Northern Maine, with one to four inches of accumulation expected.
Elsewhere, lingering clouds Thursday morning will give way to breaks of sun with temperatures rebounding to near 60 degrees - but colder air arriving aloft, first, will mean building clouds with scattered showers and thunderstorms developing from midday onward!
By Friday, cooler air will be evident both aloft and at the surface, producing lots of bubbling clouds with snow showers and squalls in the mountains, and renewed midday and afternoon showers elsewhere, with highs noticeably cooler in the 40s to near 50.
By Saturday and Sunday, cooler air is in place with dry air for fair weather, and though we continue watching a storm developing to the south, most of Sunday looks dry.
Sunday night into Monday, an onshore wind will mean increased moisture for some showers, and nearby cold may mean snow showers for some, depending upon the storm track, but a cool start to the week eventually yields to 50s again by week's end in the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day.
