Saturday Forecast

10:51AM

DAYS 1-5 (FEBRUARY 29-MARCH 4)
This weekend, Leap Day today and the first day of March tomorrow, will be cold thanks to a batch of cold air recently delivered “air-mail” from Canada. A weak upper disturbance may trigger a passing snow flurry today, otherwise expected dry weather for the weekend. And as has been the case all winter, moderation quickly follows for the first half of the coming week. Expect Monday to feature cloudiness as it warms up both surface and aloft, a small bubble of high pressure to bring fair weather Tuesday, then low pressure tracking northwest of the region to bring back cloudiness and a good chance of wet weather by the middle of the week.
TODAY: Partly sunny. Brief passing snow flurry possible. Highs 33-40. Wind W 10-20 MPH.
TONIGHT: Clearing. Lows 12-19. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Sunny. Highs 33-40. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 25-32. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.
MONDAY: Cloudy. Highs 38-45. Wind SE up to 10 MPH becoming variable.
MONDAY NIGHT: Cloudy evening. Partly cloudy overnight. Temperatures steady 38-45. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 48-55. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 38-45. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy. Chance of rain showers. Highs 48-55. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (MARCH 5-9)
Fair weather at the start and end of the period. Watch the March 6-8 period for potential unsettled weather which may include some snow.

DAYS 11-15 (MARCH 10-14)
Fair weather to start, then another unsettled period possible which may also include at least some risk of mix/snow.

Friday Forecast

7:38AM

DAYS 1-5 (FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 3)
Canadian high pressure brings dry, cold weather for the final 2 days of February and the first day of March. A weak low pressure and frontal system accompanying a slight warm-up returns clouds to the region for Monday, but with a minimal threat of any precipitation, and then a bubble of high pressure brings dry weather for Tuesday.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 11-18. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
SATURDAY: Sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 12-19. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Sunny. Highs 33-40. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 25-32. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.
MONDAY: Cloudy. Highs 38-45. Wind SE up to 10 MPH becoming variable.
MONDAY NIGHT: Cloudy evening. Partly cloudy overnight. Lows 28-35. Wind variable up to 10 MPH becoming N.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind light variable.

DAYS 6-10 (MARCH 4-8)
A more unsettled period of weather starting with a brief warm-up then followed by colder air again. Will have to watch for a couple systems, the first favoring rain and the second possibly favoring more frozen precipitation. High degree of uncertainty remains.

DAYS 11-15 (MARCH 9-13)
Fair, briefly colder to start the period, then moderating temperatures and additional unsettled weather possible mid to late period.

Thursday Forecast

7:21AM

DAYS 1-5 (FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 2)
Low pressure moves across the region this morning then away this afternoon through tonight, making a day that starts out breezy and quite wet turn out drier and windy by its end, and initially on the mild side, but followed by the arrival of cold air by evening. This leads to a period of quiet but colder weather to wind up the month of February and open March, chilly lamb style. By Monday, high pressure to the north and low pressure to the south means that clouds may be back.
TODAY: Overcast with rain, possibly heavy, early to mid morning, ending abruptly from southwest to northeast by late morning. Sunshine and passing clouds midday on with only a brief passing rain shower possible. Highs 45-52 morning, falling through the 40s afternoon. Wind E 10-20 MPH early to mid morning becoming variable then shifting to W increasing to 15-25 MPH midday and afternoon with higher gusts.
TONIGHT: Clearing. Lows 21-28. Wind W 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 11-18. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
SATURDAY: Sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 12-19. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Sunny. Highs 33-40. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 25-32. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.
MONDAY: Cloudy. Highs 35-42. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (MARCH 3-7)
A more unsettled period of weather starting with a brief warm-up then followed by colder air again. Will have to watch for a couple systems, the first favoring rain and the second possibly favoring more frozen precipitation. High degree of uncertainty at this point.

DAYS 11-15 (MARCH 8-12)
Potential winter weather event early in the period, followed by fair and colder weather then a warm-up later in the period with possible additional unsettled weather.

Wednesday Forecast

7:12AM

DAYS 1-5 (FEBRUARY 26-MARCH 1)
Low pressure will strengthen and occlude as it passes through the region tonight and Thursday, bringing a slug of rain, heaviest tonight into early Thursday. Behind this comes a shot of colder air later Thursday and especially Friday into the weekend, but with mainly dry weather as we wind up February and begin March.
TODAY: Overcast. Areas of fog and drizzle. Scattered areas of light rain. Highs 40-47. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Overcast. Areas of fog and drizzle. Moderate to heavy rain arriving southwest to northeast pre-dawn. Lows 38-45. Wind E 10-20 MPH.
THURSDAY: Overcast with rain, possibly heavy, early to mid morning, ending abruptly from southwest to northeast by late morning. Sunshine and passing clouds midday on. Highs 45-52 morning, falling through the 40s afternoon. Wind E 10-20 MPH, higher gusts, becoming variable then shifting to W increasing to 15-25 MPH afternoon.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Clearing. Lows 21-28. Wind W 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 11-18. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
SATURDAY: Sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 12-19. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Sunny. Highs 33-40. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (MARCH 2-6)
High pressure to north and wave of low pressure passing to the south bring cloudiness to start the period, then a brief interlude of dry and cool weather with high pressure, followed by a quick warm up, a risk of rain showers, then cold air returning late in the period.

DAYS 11-15 (MARCH 7-11)
Potential winter weather event early in the period, followed by fair and colder weather then a warm-up later in the period.

Tuesday Forecast

7:30AM

DAYS 1-5 (FEBRUARY 25-29)
The final 5 days of February, also the final 5 days of “Meteorological Winter” will display the theme of the winter: Relatively mild air, a stretch of unsettled weather that is mainly rain, and a return of dry weather once the cold air comes back. This will take place as we have 2 wave of low pressure pass through the region, the first a weaker one moving south of the area today with very limited rainfall around, the second more potent with a more solid shot of rain mainly Wednesday night and early Thursday. The cold air arrives as the precipitation moves away Thursday and will be around with dry weather for the end of the week.
TODAY: Mostly cloudy. Light rain possible Cape Cod and Islands until mid morning. Highs 40-47. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Cloudy. Areas of fog. Periods of drizzle. Chance of light rain. Lows 33-40. Wind NE under 10 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Cloudy. Areas of fog. Periods of drizzle. Chance of light rain at times, then rain likely late-day which may start with a snow/sleet mix north central MA and southwestern NH with no accumulation. Highs 38-45. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Rain likely. Temperatures steady 38-45. Wind E 10-20 MPH becoming variable.
THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Scattered rain showers morning. Isolated snow showers afternoon. Temperatures steady 38-45 morning, falling through the 30s afternoon. Wind variable becoming W 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Clearing. Lows 21-28. Wind W 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 11-18. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
SATURDAY: Sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts

DAYS 6-10 (MARCH 1-5)
Fair, cold March 1. Low pressure passing to south brings clouds March 2. High pressure brings fair weather March 3. Low pressure likely passes west of the region with a warm-up and risk of rain showers during the March 4-5 time frame.

DAYS 11-15 (MARCH 6-10)
Continued low confidence, but still looks like boundary setting up nearby between cold to north, warm to south, and several opportunities for unsettled weather.

Monday Forecast

7:40AM

DAYS 1-5 (FEBRUARY 24-28)
High pressure hangs on today with another mild and dry day. Weak cold front slides through from north to south tonight and high pressure in eastern Canada delivers a northeasterly breeze Tuesday as a wave of low pressure moves along the front as it settles just to the south. Tuesday’s weather will be much less pleasant due to those factors, but don’t expect all that much rain until a second surge of low pressure moves through the region later Wednesday, though there may be enough chilly air at the start for some mixed in frozen stuff in higher elevations well northwest of Boston. That low will pull away during Thursday and open the door for drier and colder by late this week.
TODAY: Sunshine then increasing high clouds. Highs 55-62 except cooler higher elevations of north central MA and southwestern NH and immediate shorelines. Wind variable up to 10 MPH with coastal sea breezes developing.
TONIGHT: Thickening overcast. Chance of light rain overnight. Lows 33-40. Wind N to NE up to 10 MPH.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Periods of light rain possible. Highs 40-47. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Areas of fog. Periods of drizzle. Lows 33-40. Wind NE under 10 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Cloudy. Areas of fog. Periods of drizzle. Chance of light rain at times, then rain likely late-day which may start with a snow/sleet mix north central MA and southwestern NH with no accumulation. Highs 38-45. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Rain likely. Temperatures steady 38-45. Wind E 10-20 MPH becoming variable.
THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Scattered rain showers morning. Isolated snow showers afternoon. Temperatures steady 38-45 morning, falling through the 30s afternoon. Wind variable becoming W 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Clearing. Lows 21-28. Wind W 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.

DAYS 6-10 (FEBRUARY 29-MARCH 4)
Fair, chilly weekend February 29 and March 1. Low pressure south and high pressure north likely means chilly and cloudy weather March 2. Uncertain on timing but March 3 looks fair and March 4 looks unsettled but milder this far in advance.

DAYS 11-15 (MARCH 5-9)
Very low confidence here. Battle zone sets up between cold to north, warmth to south. Unsettled weather very possible, timing and precipitation types highly uncertain. Re-evaluation of this period going forward.

Sunday Forecast

7:24AM

DAYS 1-5 (FEBRUARY 23-27)
2 mild late February days coming up as high pressure sits south of New England. A broad double-barrel low will impact the region Tuesday to early Thursday, mainly as a rain event with 2 surges of wet weather, the second being more potent. Cold air arrives at the end, but mainly after the precipitation is gone.
TODAY: Sunny. Highs 48-55. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 33-40. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Increasing clouds. Highs 45-50 South Coast, 51-56 elsewhere. Wind S up to 10 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Thickening overcast. Lows 38-45. Wind SE up to 10 MPH.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain, favoring the afternoon. Highs 42-49. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Areas of fog. Lows 38-45. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Cloudy. Areas of fog. Chance of light rain early. Steadier rain likely late day or night. Highs 40-47. Wind NE 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Rain likely evening. Patchy rain, drizzle, and areas of fog overnight. Lows 33-40. Wind SE 5-15 MPH becoming variable.
THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy with a chance of rain showers morning. Partly sunny with a chance of snow showers afternoon. Temperatures steady 33-40. Wind W increasing to 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.

DAYS 6-10 (FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 3)
Fair, chilly weather February 28-29 to end the month. Temperatures moderate slightly but with high pressure to the north and low pressure passing to the south the start of March may be on the cloudier side although looks like storminess and precipitation will stay to the south at this early stage of looking at the system.

DAYS 11-15 (MARCH 4-8)
Timing of low pressure systems this far in advance is always difficult but initially looking at March 4 and March 6-7 for possible impact times. Precipitation types uncertain but temperatures may be a little more marginal for rain vs. mix/snow. Long way to go to figure out the details.

Saturday Forecast

9:09AM

DAYS 1-5 (FEBRUARY 22-26)
High pressure located to the south of New England provides dry and milder weather for the weekend. This will continue into Monday despite an increase in cloudiness ahead of the first of 2 low pressure systems to impact the region from late Monday night into midweek. The first one will be running out of steam as it comes in so the rainfall will be limited during Tuesday and early Wednesday, but the second system will have more punch to it and bring a more solid area of rain later Wednesday.
TODAY: Sunny. Highs 42-49. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 27-34. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Sunny. Highs 48-55. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 33-40. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Increasing clouds. Highs 45-50 South Coast, 51-56 elsewhere. Wind S up to 10 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Chance of light rain overnight. Lows 38-45. Wind SE up to 10 MPH.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Highs 42-49. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Areas of fog. Lows 38-45. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Cloudy. Areas of fog. Chance of light rain early. Steadier rain likely late day or night. Highs 40-47. Wind NE 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 2)
February 27 transitions from a rainy start with an easterly wind to a drying finish (maybe a rain/snow shower) with a gusty westerly wind as it turns colder. Fair, chilly weather February 28-29 to end the month. Moderating temperatures to start March with mainly dry weather.

DAYS 11-15 (MARCH 3-7)
Timing of low pressure systems this far in advance is always difficult but initially looking at March 4 and March 6-7 for possible impact times. Precipitation types uncertain but temperatures may be a little more marginal for rain vs. mix/snow. Long way to go to figure out the details.

Friday Forecast

7:16AM

DAYS 1-5 (FEBRUARY 21-25)
One more chilly day then a weekend warm-up as high pressure drifts to the south of New England. The early part of next week will turn unsettled as clouds move in Monday then wet weather arriving Monday night into Tuesday as a broad low pressure area moves in, but into air mild enough so that once again frozen precipitation is not going to be a factor. That’s just been the predominant pattern that has been nearly impossible to break, and it’s not quite ready to let go yet.
TODAY: Sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 22-29. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Sunny. Highs 40-47. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 25-32. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Sunny. Highs 45-52. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 30-37. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Increasing clouds. Highs 45-52. Wind S up to 10 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Chance of rain. Lows 35-42. Wind SE up to 10 MPH.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Highs 42-49. Wind E 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (FEBRUARY 26-MARCH 1)
The follow up storm I’ve been watching for midweek next week is still a threat, but current indications are that it will be a little more closely tucked in behind the first, with impact more on February 26 into February 27 before any real cold air can be established, so shifting the idea to more of a rain/mix situation for this, but with only moderate confidence, followed by drier/colder weather thereafter.

DAYS 11-15 (MARCH 2-6)
Somewhat active and colder pattern to start the month of March. The door will be open for the possibility of winter weather events. This doesn’t look like the type of pattern where we dive into the feel of full winter though, just more marginal. There is still not a strong sign of a set-up to really change the pattern in a big and lasting way from what has been predominant for much of this winter.

Thursday Forecast

7:24AM

DAYS 1-5 (FEBRUARY 20-24)
Two cold days in a row have been about our maximum time for a cold shot this winter, and once again that will be the case thanks to Canadian high pressure and a piece of modified arctic air mass today and Friday, until that high pressure area situates itself to the southwest and south of New England and the return flow around it brings milder air back into the region during the course of the weekend. By Monday, low pressure approaching from the southwest will spread clouds into the region.
TODAY: Sunny. Highs 28-35. Wind N up to 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 10-17. Wind N under 10 MPH.
FRIDAY: Sunny. Highs 32-39. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 22-29. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 40-47. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 25-32. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 45-52. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 30-37. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Increasing clouds. Chance of rain at night. Highs 43-50. Wind S up to 10 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (FEBRUARY 25-29)
Two storm systems impact the region during this period, the first as a mainly rain event for a portion of February 25 before drier weather returns and colder air arrives between it and the arrival of the next system, which may contain any type of precipitation but a stronger chance of frozen varieties as it impacts the region from later February 26 through February 27, with dry and seasonably cold weather following it to end the month.

DAYS 11-15 (MARCH 1-5)
Somewhat active and colder pattern to start the month of March. The door will be open for the possibility of winter weather events.
