It’s a Leap Year so we have 3 days of February remaining.
February 2012 will go down as one of the top 5 warmest Februarys on record.
In addition, this February will go down in the record books as the least (or one of the least) snowy on record.
It depends if we get any measurable precipitation before midnight on Wednesday, the last day of February.
Watch Melissa’s forecast:
It’s a record-setting month! Yes, I did mention ‘snow’, and it’s heading this way just in time for March to make its debut.
Today will be sunny before clouds roll in this evening.
A spot sprinkle is possible this evening as a weak, moisture-starved cold front sweeps across New England.
High temperatures will be mild as they climb in between 45-50F.
Tuesday will be sunny and breezy with seasonable high temperatures in the lower to middle 40s.
A storm system heads this way on Wednesday and Thursday.
The trickiest part of this storm is the track, which will determine the precipitation type.
If it takes a more southerly track, this will be mainly a snow event for the entire viewing area.
There is potential for at least a few inches of snow.
We will be keeping a close eye on this storm.
A brighter sky will return on Friday with highs in the upper 30s.
First weekend of March 2012 … It is going to kick-off wet and warm on Saturday. Then, Sunday will be more seasonable along with partly sunny skies along with the chance of a few flurries due to an upper level trough.
Extra Tidbits…**Meteorological Spring begins this Thursday, March 1. **Daylight Saving Time begins at 2am on Sunday, March 11…turn clocks AHEAD 1 hour (‘Spring’ ahead).
