The batches of snow showers are very spotty and light so this will keep accumulations down. As the low tracks through tonight is should keep the heaviest snow across SVT, SNH and N. MA. Though snow will start off light, heavier bands may try to develop overnight into the early morning Saturday
Sunday: Sunny, Breezy and Cooler. Highs in the 30′s near 40. NW 15-30 mph
Sunday Night: Mostly clear, calm winds and cold. Some clouds increase overnight. Lows in the lwr 20′s
Winds will be strong and persistent enough to make for wind damage with fallen limbs, branches and power lines. Wind Advisory for most areas 20-30 mph winds gust to 50. A Wind warning along the south Coast including the Cape and Islands thru 8 PM for sustained winds 30-40 with gust to 60 mph possible.
Cold high pressure sits over this morning with clear skies and frigid early morning temperatures Below zero in the northern valleys, single digits in the suburbs, and teens and 20′s at the coast. Ocean effect clouds remain in place across SE MA. High pressure sits over us today providing calm conditions, but as it pulls off shore this afternoon, light east winds at the surface may begin to direct some of this low cloudiness in land. These low clouds may deposit a few flurries in spots this afternoon
So far this winter most of our snow has been light or has occurred overnight, but this next round of snow will likely be our most substantial plowable snowfall we have seen since the October Nor’easter. Still, this will be no Nor’easter. Not even close.
Skies will start out bright with sunshine in the early morning. Clouds will be on the increase through the day. Mostly cloudy skies by the afternoon. There is a risk of a few scattered snow showers and flurries forming in northern and western New England.
High pressure builds in over us Saturday supplying dry cold air with winds out of the North. Highs will be in the upper 20′s and Lwr 30′s in the sunshine. Ocean effect clouds and flurries will hang tough at the coast from Boston to the Cape.
Partly sunny skies this morning will give way to increasing cloudiness as the front pushes through this afternoon. This front may even trigger a brief rain or snow shower…but there is plenty of dry air in the low levels to keep today mostly dry. Highs will climb into the upper 30′s and lwr 40′s by midday before falling this afternoon behind the front.
Clouds are quickly filling in today with skies becoming cloudy. These clouds will thicken and lower into the evening hours. N0rthern New England is looking at a nice day with increasing afternoon cloudiness
The week that was in forecasting is gone now. What we are left with is high confidence of a storm tracking far enough off the coast to have little impact for our region. In fact, I am calling for a great weekend…but also cautious to see if this storm has any more tricks up it’s sleeve.
