Friday Forecast

7:34AM

DAYS 1-5 (JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 4)
No big changes for the forecast looking out through 5 days – a nice day to end the month of January, a fairly benign winter month. February starts with a little more activity in the pipeline but nothing too spectacular, storm-wise, as we get grazed by low pressure passing south of the region Saturday bringing a little rain/mix to southeastern areas, and an upper low crosses the area Sunday with perhaps a rain/snow shower as it turns a little colder. A small area of high pressure will bring fair weather Monday before a warm front returns cloudiness and a slight risk of a little light rain to the region Tuesday as milder air returns.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Sun gives way to clouds. Highs 37-44. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Brief snow/mix possible late evening. Lows 26-33. Wind variable under 10 MPH.
SATURDAY: Cloudy. Chance of mix/rain favoring eastern CT/RI/southeastern MA. Highs 35-42. Wind E 5-15 MPH, higher gusts southern areas.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. A rain or snow shower favoring southeastern areas. Lows 30-37. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of a rain or snow shower. Highs 35-42. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Clearing. Lows 20-27. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 43-50. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 30-37. Wind SW up to 10 MPH.
TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy. Brief light rain possible favoring northern MA / southern NH. Highs 40-47. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (FEBRUARY 5-9)
Mild with rain showers possible February 5. Cooler, still above seasonal averages, but a period of unsettled weather from a couple of low pressure systems possible during the February 6-8 period with a variety of precipitation possible. Fair, colder at the end of the period.

DAYS 11-15 (FEBRUARY 10-14)
Pattern transition puts southeastern New England in a battle zone with additional unsettled weather and a variety of precipitation possible during this period. Far too soon to try to pick out any details.

Thursday Forecast

7:11AM

DAYS 1-5 (JANUARY 30-FEBRUARY 3)
We end January with one dry and seasonably chilly day and another dry and slightly milder day as high pressure moves across the region then offshore and away. We will start February with a slightly unsettled weekend and by slightly I mean being skirted by the northwestern edge of a broad low pressure area offshore Saturday bringing a little rain and possible mix into southeastern sections, and some upper level energy coming across Sunday with slightly colder air in place, resulting in the possibility of some snow showers in the region. High pressure will bring fair weather Monday and we’ll already be moderating in temperature by then as things are moving right along.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 30-37. Wind N up to 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 13-20. Wind variable under 10 MPH.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 37-44. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Clouding over. Lows 26-33. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Cloudy. Chance of mix/rain favoring eastern CT/RI/southeastern MA. Highs 35-42. Wind E 10-20 MPH, higher gusts southern areas.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. A rain or snow shower favoring southeastern areas. Lows 30-37. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of a snow shower. Highs 35-42. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Clearing. Lows 20-27. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind W 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (FEBRUARY 4-8)
Milder then average throughout the period though some variability in temperature, with warmest likely occurring on February 4. A couple low pressure areas will impact the region, the first in the February 4-5 period with rain showers as mild air dominates, the second sometime in the later February 6 to February 8 period which may have more of a mix involved as slightly colder air will be present by then.

DAYS 11-15 (FEBRUARY 9-13)
Fair weather to start this period then being near a boundary between mild air in the southeastern US and colder air in eastern Canada means we’ll likely turn unsettled again for the balance of this period, although it’s far too soon to detail what any storminess may produce as far as precipitation type goes.

Wednesday Forecast

7:24AM

DAYS 1-5 (JANUARY 29-FEBRUARY 2)
High pressure brings fair and a bit more of a chill to the area today and Thursday, certainly not “cold” by January standards, but feeling a little more seasonable than much of the month has. High pressure continues to dominate through Friday, which will be a little milder. This will end the month on a quiet note. As February arrives we’ll immediately be watching a storm system but at the moment I feel the bulk of this will pass offshore to the southeast of New England, not being able to link with energy dropping through the Great Lakes in time to form a more significant storm to impact the region, so going with rain (maybe mix) confined to southeastern portions of the region with little or nothing to the north and northwest as the initial system passes by on Saturday. Slightly colder air arriving with the energy from the Great Lakes passing by on Sunday may produce a few snow showers. There is still just enough uncertainty that we have to watch that initial storm should it end up closer.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Early morning clouds depart north to south, otherwise mostly sunny. Highs 33-40. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 13-20. Wind N up to 10 MPH.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 30-37. Wind N up to 10 MPH.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 12-19. Wind variable under 10 MPH.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 35-42. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Clouding over. Lows 25-32. Wind NE 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Cloudy. Chance of mix/rain favoring eastern CT/RI/southeastern MA. Highs 35-42. Wind E 10-20 MPH, higher gusts southern areas.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. A rain or snow shower favoring southeastern areas. Lows 30-37. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of a snow shower. Highs 35-42. Wind W 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (FEBRUARY 3-7)
Fair, chilly February 3. Unsettled weather potential February 4-5, and again later February 6 or February 7. Too early to know precipitation type for those threats but temperatures will still likely be running above seasonal averages for the first week of February overall.

DAYS 11-15 (FEBRUARY 8-12)
Unsettled weather threats very early and again late in the period. Temperatures gradually trend colder with a slow pattern transition underway.

Tuesday Forecast

7:24AM

DAYS 1-5 (JANUARY 28-FEBRUARY 1)
A cold front drops north to south through the region today as a pool of chilly air continues to move through aloft, causing lots of clouds. A few flurries may occur mainly this morning. A band of snow showers may impact the southern portion of the South Shore (south of Plymouth MA) across Cape Cod with a minor accumulation of snow this evening and tonight as colder air blows over relatively warmer water. High pressure north of the region will create a chilly northerly air flow for midweek but with dry weather, but as the high slips to the southeast it will moderate a little with continued dry weather on Friday, to end January. As February arrives Saturday we’ll be watching for the arrival of a possible storm system that brings the chance of rain and/or snow. At this point it remains uncertain as to the magnitude of impact from this potential system. Will fine-tune this in the next few days.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly cloudy. Brief passing light snow showers possible through midday. Highs 37-43. Wind N 10-20 MPH.
TONIGHT: Variably cloudy. Snow showers with minor accumulation possible south of Plymouth MA through Cape Cod. Lows 20-27. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 13-20. Wind N up to 10 MPH.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 30-37. Wind N up to 10 MPH.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 12-19. Wind variable under 10 MPH.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 35-42. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Clouding over. Lows 25-32. Wind NE 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Cloudy. Chance of snow/mix/rain. Highs 33-40. Wind NE 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.

DAYS 6-10 (FEBRUARY 2-6)
Surface low pressure that may impact the region the day before should be departing but upper level low pressure crossing New England may cause snow showers February 2. After a break February 3, another weather system brings the risk of precipitation February 4 followed by another at the end of the period. Temperatures will run above seasonal averages.

DAYS 11-15 (FEBRUARY 7-11)
Potentially 2 more low pressure systems around February 8 and February 10-11. Temperatures should be trending colder at this time.

Monday Forecast

7:35AM

DAYS 1-5 (JANUARY 27-31)
A quiet final 5 days of January as high pressure will be in general control. There will be lots of cloudiness around today however to start the week as upper level energy moves through the region, and a weak cold front will pass by later Tuesday bringing somewhat colder air into the region as well, also possibly bringing a touch of snow shower activity to outer Cape Cod. But those would be the only flakes to possibly be seen in the area for the next several days.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly cloudy. Highs 38-45. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 22-29. Wind NW up to 10 MPH.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 37-43. Wind N 10-20 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Possible snow showers outer Cape Cod. Lows 20-27. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 13-20. Wind N up to 10 MPH.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 30-37. Wind N up to 10 MPH.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 12-19. Wind variable under 10 MPH.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 35-42. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (FEBRUARY 1-5)
Weather pattern gets a little more active as we start February with storm threats on the February 1-2 weekend and also February 4-5. In each case it’s far too soon for much detail, but the weekend system at least as some risk of having frozen precipitation involved with it.

DAYS 11-15 (FEBRUARY 6-10)
Another opportunity for storminess around the middle of the period.

Sunday Forecast

8:06AM

DAYS 1-5 (JANUARY 26-30)
This is basically going to be the same blog as yesterday, with yesterday removed, and the days shuffled up, mainly because I see absolutely no need to change a thing today. To summarize, dry air returns today, high pressure dominates much of the week, no arctic cold, but a little more seasonably chilly at times as we head through the next several days.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Partly sunny. Highs 43-50. Wind W 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 23-30. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 22-29. Wind NW up to 10 MPH.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 37-43. Wind N 10-20 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 20-27. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 35-42. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 15-22. Wind N up to 10 MPH.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind N up to 10 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 4)
High pressure should hold on for dry weather to end January. Continuing to watch the February 1-2 weekend for a possible storm threat. Fair, chilly interlude after that before another threat appears at the end of the period.

DAYS 11-15 (FEBRUARY 5-9)
Departing low pressure with dry weather returning early period, a mid period unsettled threat, and then dry and colder to end it.

Saturday Forecast

9:21AM

DAYS 1-5 (JANUARY 25-29)
Our pattern recently has to been spread out the storm systems and get longer stretches of quiet weather, and that will be the case for a while. We dealt with some storminess mainly in the form of snow with some rain to the south last weekend, and this weekend we will deal with another passing low pressure area of fairly short duration, but this time all rain as we have mild air in place. We’ll essentially see this event over about a 6 to 10 hour period tonight, but during its peak it will produce a pretty good slug of rain, and even possibly some thunder. So if you have Saturday night plans be ready for rain, but at least you don’t have to plan for snow or ice. This system, which consists of a parent low moving into the Great Lakes and a secondary low which will form near the Delmarva and move right across southern New England, will be out of here quickly Sunday morning, leaving southeastern New England in a drying westerly air flow during the day. However, we won’t see a blast of cold coming in right behind this system as we often do during winter. This time mild air follows it. Somewhat colder air will filter into the region during the first few days of the coming week, helped out a little by a quietly passing cold front on Tuesday and high pressure in eastern Canada. Previously I had snow showers in the forecast for the Tuesday system, but at the moment it appears that will slip through here without enough moisture to work with to produce any snow showers, just some clouds.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Cloudy. Patchy rain mid to late afternoon. Highs 40-47. Wind SE increasing to 10-20 MPH with higher gusts, strongest at the coast.
TONIGHT: Cloudy through late evening with rain, likely moderate to heavy for a period of time which may also include a thunderstorm. Breaking clouds overnight. Temperature rise slightly to 45-52 evening. Overnight lows 36-43. Wind variable 5-15 MPH evening, W 10-20 MPH overnight.
SUNDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 43-50. Wind W 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 23-30. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 22-29. Wind W up to 10 MPH.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 37-43. Wind W 10-20 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 20-27. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 35-42. Wind N 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (JANUARY 30-FEBRUARY 3)
High pressure should hold on for day weather the last couple days of January. Watching the February 1-2 weekend for a possible storm system, this one having colder air to work with and a greater risk of having some snow/ice involved. Fair, colder to end the period.

DAYS 11-15 (FEBRUARY 4-8)
Potential stormy periods at the beginning an end of the period, with fair and seasonably cold weather between.

Friday Forecast

7:20AM

DAYS 1-5 (JANUARY 24-28)
High pressure heads offshore today and we will see some cloudiness as a frontal boundary will be in the region, but not with enough moisture to produce any precipitation. Things will change in short order tomorrow afternoon as low pressure wheels into the Great Lakes and a secondary forms and comes right up over southeastern New England at night, bringing a slug of rain, and maybe even a rumble of thunder. There will simply not be enough cold air around for anything other than rain. Drier air returns on Sunday outside the risk of a passing rain shower as colder air will not return quickly enough or in any force enough to create snow showers behind this system either. A more seasonably chill arrives for the early part of next week with dry weather except the risk of a passing snow shower from a cold front Tuesday. Forecast details follow…
TODAY: Variably cloudy, limited sun. Highs 36-43. Wind W shifting to N 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows 28-35. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.
SATURDAY: Cloudy. Rain arriving afternoon. Highs 40-47. Wind SE increasing to 10-20 MPH, strongest South Coast.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Rain likely, risk of thunder, rain tapering off overnight. Temperatures steady in the 40s. Wind SE 10-20 MPH early then variable 5-15 MPH becoming W around dawn.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of a rain shower. Temperatures steady in the 40s. Wind W 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 20-27. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 35-42. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. A snow shower possible. Highs 35-42. Wind W 10-20 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (JANUARY 29-FEBRUARY 2)
Fair, chilly January 29. Watching the period from later January 30 to early February 2 for a potential storm that will likely have colder air to work with and would present the risk of wind and precipitation, including frozen.

DAYS 11-15 (FEBRUARY 3-7)
Fair, seasonably chilly weather starts and ends the period with another storm threat in between.

Thursday Forecast

7:22AM

DAYS 1-5 (JANUARY 23-27)
High pressure hangs on with nice weather today then moves offshore as another high presses down from eastern Canada with a cold front dropping through the region north to south on Friday with some cloudiness but no precipitation. Low pressure then tracks northeastward and the strongest indications are now that a primary low will remain stronger for longer and its secondary low will be a little weaker and too far west to hold cold air, which is marginal anyway, in for the upcoming precipitation shield, which will also have a quicker timing than previously expected. So look for a rain event starting Saturday afternoon and ending by the early hours of Sunday. But we do need to watch some energy as cold air returns Sunday for possible snow showers. Right now it does not look like this would develop into steady snowfall. By Monday, high pressure brings fair weather and a seasonable chill. Forecast details follow…
TODAY: Sun and high clouds. Highs 40-47. Wind SW up to 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Variably cloudy. Wind W up to 10 MPH.
FRIDAY: Variably cloudy, limited sun. Highs 36-43. Wind W shifting to N 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows 28-35. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.
SATURDAY: Cloudy. Rain arriving afternoon. Highs 40-47. Wind SE increasing to 10-20 MPH, strongest South Coast.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Rain likely evening, ending overnight. Lows 35-42. Wind SE 10-20 MPH early, then variable up to 10 MPH.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of snow showers. Temperatures stead 35-42. Wind W increasing to 10-20 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 20-27. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 35-42. Wind W 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (JANUARY 28-FEBRUARY 1)
Quick disturbance may bring a snow shower January 28. Fair, seasonably cold January 29. Watching the January 30-February 1 period for possible storminess, but too soon for details.

DAYS 11-15 (FEBRUARY 2-6)
One storm system may be impacting the region to start the period and another one may arrive mid to late period. Too soon to determine precipitation type.

Wednesday Forecast

7:37AM

DAYS 1-5 (JANUARY 22-26)
An area of high pressure crests over the region today then moves slowly offshore as we head toward late week with continue fair weather. Temperatures will be more moderate than they were to start the week. Then low pressure makes a run at the region for the weekend, currently looking, track-wise, similar to the system of last weekend, but with less cold air to work with, which should result in more of a variety of precipitation over more of the region, however there still should be enough cold around so that significant snow is possible for at least a portion of southeastern New England. Details will continue to be fine-tuned as it gets closer.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Sunny. Highs 33-40. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 5-10 interior valleys, 10-17 elsewhere. Wind calm.
THURSDAY: Sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind S up to 10 MPH.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 22-29. Wind S under 10 MPH.
FRIDAY: Increasing clouds. Highs 38-45. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows 20-27. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.
SATURDAY: Filtered sunshine morning. Cloudy afternoon with rain/mix/snow possible by late-day. Highs 35-42. Wind N up to 10 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT & SUNDAY: Cloudy with rain/mix/snow likely. Temperatures in the 30s to lower 40s. Wind variable 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.

DAYS 6-10 (JANUARY 27-31)
Fair and seasonably cold January 27-29 except a few snow showers possible from a passing disturbance January 28. Watching the last couple days of the month for possible approach and impact by the next storm system.

DAYS 11-15 (FEBRUARY 1-5)
Winter storm threat potentials February 1-2 weekend and February 4-5.
