Another cold night ahead….skies will vary from clear to partly cloudy Tonight with late night low temperatures falling to around 5-10° just before dawn
Temperatures will start trending cool to milder by Thursday and Friday. In fact, we have a very quiet and sunny stretch ahead.
WEDNESDAY MORNING: Frigid start at sunrise..more sunshine
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON: Sunny seasonably chilly…mid to upper 30s
Despite very cold temperatures last several days, local ponds and lakes are still NOT safe
The dry stretch comes to an end over the weekend. A developing coastal storm looks to pass near or over southern New England. After a dry start Saturday morning, expect rain showers to develop in the late afternoon and evening.
Rain may mix with or change to wet snow showers, especially north and west of Providence Saturday night and Sunday. The set-up isn’t great for snow-lovers. There’s not a lot of cold air to work with, and the storm track looks too close to the coast to support a big snow for southern New England.
If the track starts trending further south, a snowier scenario would be possible. Right now, it looks like the significant accumulations would be across central and northern New England. Stay tuned!
