The high-pressure system which has been responsible for our cold and dry weather of the last several days is easing off east of New England Tuesday.
After another very cold start with temperatures in the single numbers above and below zero north, teens and 20s south, many of us should get to 32 degrees or better Tuesday afternoon. There’s a good amount of sunshine, a few clouds mixed in northern New England with a decaying front.
Low pressure will track north of us on Wednesday, and bringing in a mix of clouds and sunshine and more of a breeze from the southwest. That wind direction is warmer, and parts of southern New England will top 40 degrees. At the same time, we may have a few snow showers or squalls in Vermont, and the Berkshires as well as northern Hampshire- with the front entering during the late morning and afternoon.
Any snow showers dissipate to perhaps a flurry at the coast by evening, and then colder air is coming back in for a bright and brisk Thursday.
High temperature in the 10s and 20s from north to south.
A fast-moving wave of low pressure brings snow into the region Thursday night. Friday morning looks wintry with snow likely, perhaps changing to rain along the coast from Boston to New York City.
Accumulations around three or more inches are possible.
Snow in mix decrease after lunchtime, with slow clearing later. It looks cold and dry for Friday night and Saturday. Low temperatures near 0 degrees north and 10s south, with highs in the 20s.
Clouds return quickly Saturday afternoon, as a weather front is going to set up along the East Coast with low pressure tracking very close to Cape Cod on Sunday afternoon.
It looks like a strengthening nor’easter that will produce heavy snow, with rain and snow mix near the coast. That will likely last all day Sunday with a high temperature only near 15 degrees in Western New England to the low 40s on the southeast coast and Cape Cod.
Ski areas once again score more than a foot of snow, and this time the snow may also be significant along the I-95 corridor also.
A brief burst of some of the coldest air of the season may come in on Monday. With a high temperature likely not reaching 20 degrees in most of New England.
This has the potential to be a very high impact event, and many more details will come as we get closer to the event next few days.
