Nice to have a day where you don’t have to shovel, scrape or white knuckle drive and this will be the case for the rest of the work week.  Temps will be sliding however and highs over the next couple of days will stay in the 20s for most.

Over the weekend the ingredients will show up for a bigger storm to impact the region…the pieces just have to come together.  A ridge of high pressure will lock in the cold here in New England while West Coast energy links up with energy diving down from Canada…the end result will be a coastal type storm, perhaps Nor’easter with lots of moisture and wind.  The placement of this low is still in question and because of that it’s too early to give specifics.  With that said, snow is likely to start by Saturday afternoon and continue into Saturday night…near the coast warmer air will likely work in and change to an icy/rainy mix.  There is a good chance right now that interior New England and the ski resorts would stay all snow with several inches possible.  We’ll be able to offer up more details as we get a little closer but file this away while making your weekend plans.
