Beyond The Forecast
It may be quiet now but it won’t be over the weekend. Winter Storm Watches are now up from the NWS for Saturday night and Sunday morning. A weak cold front will slide in this afternoon with a flurry but more importantly it will thoroughly establish the arctic air here in New England. This will set the table for our weekend storm leading to lots of snow. The trend over the last 24 hours is for an increase in moisture and while the mid-levels still aren’t that impressive the upper levels (jet-stream level) all of a sudden is much more favorable for generating lift and therefore precip.

Hard to believe with temps in the mid 50s right now that later tonight most will experience their first taste of Winter…but it true.
The pattern is turning more active and at first will be mild but over the weekend the cold will win out. With temps climbing to around 50 degrees for the next 36 hours there is no concern for ice or snow. There isn’t much forcing for ample moisture right now so we are looking at just some spotty showers and pockets of drizzle through later tonight. However, tomorrow a cold front will slide into the area and rain intensity will pick up.
