As the cold and dry weather rolls on for the Northeast, a new cold front is pressing south through New England Monday. This subtly reinforces the cold and dry air while pushing the wind to blow from the north.
A north wind of cold air over relatively warm ocean water creates some ocean-effect clouds on Cape Cod Monday with a few flurries by evening. Then, a light and variable wind Tuesday and Wednesday should allow some of the ocean clouds to dance along the coastline of New England farther to the north, too.

This means that although the chance of flurries expands along the coasts, no substantial snow is expected. A weak disturbance moves through the sky over New England later Thursday to Thursday night as warmer air begins arriving aloft. This combination may trigger at least a little light snow, particularly in Northern New England. However, we’ll be waiting for the next bigger storm system to arrive at the week’s end.
A deep southeast wind flow will develop through the atmosphere Friday into Saturday, meaning when precipitation arrives overnight Friday night, even if it starts as a wintry mix in the mountains, nearly all of us will find a change to rain. This will be especially so as the bulk of it falls Saturday.
There’s a chance some of the rain may linger into Sunday and perhaps enough cold air returns to end as snow showers in the mountains before a seasonable and dry start to next week in the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
