    Overnight: Mostly cloudy, flurries possible, lows near 30. Wind from northeast 15-20 mph. Sunday: Mostly cloudy, flurries possible, high in the 30s, wind from the northeast 20-25 mph. Monday: Mostly sunny, high in the 40s. (Published Saturday, March 18, 2017)

    After a chilly and mostly clear start Saturday, clouds will build in during the day with a chance of some light rain or snow in Connecticut, western Massachusetts, and southern Vermont by sunset.

    A low pressure center over Pennsylvania is going to dissipate, with the transfer of energy to a new storm south of Nantucket late today and overnight.

    The storm will intensify rapidly evolving into a minor to moderate North Easter for eastern New England tomorrow.

    Rain and snow on Cape Cod early in the day will expand slightly northward. It should be cold enough for mostly snow, except on Cape Cod, where a mix is possible.

    The western and northern edge of the precipitation is a tough call, but it looks like it's primarily Interstate 95 and the shore that get the highest impact with the storm.

    Snowfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are likely, with locally higher amounts possible for the Cape and the Islands and if it comes down hard enough, snow may accumulate on roadways also. Cape Cod may have snow change to rain before changing back to snow before ending late tomorrow night.

    It looks like the Boston St. Patrick's Day parade will feature snow and wind, with the temperature in the low to mid 30s.

    Wind is a factor especially for the Cape and the Islands where a High Wind Watch is in effect for Sunday. Wind gusts in excess of 50 miles an hour are possible with scattered power outages.

    In western and northern New England we will have a mixture of sunshine and clouds, and high in the 30s to near 40 degrees. Snow gradually winds down in eastern in New England Sunday night, although it may remain snowing in Maine (on the backside of the system before it moves out to sea) through sunrise on Monday.

    Good news, on the backside of this storm there is no new cold air for a change. Temperatures will rise into the 40s with increasing sunshine on Monday. We will have a light refreeze with clear skies Monday night. Then, another day of melting on Tuesday with high temperatures in the 40s to near 50 degrees.

    New cold is on the way for Tuesday night and Wednesday, as another mid-week arctic front is likely. That means Wednesday and Thursday are cold again, possibly record cold each morning in the single numbers and teens. But with sunshine we should warm into the 30s for each afternoon.

    By next Friday a warm front is on the way with a mixture of snow and rain possible, but that precipitation will probably change to all rain with much warmer air coming in for the first part of next weekend. We will take them one at a time and be at your service for the duration.

    As high-pressure moves offshore to our north we have wind coming in from the east and northeast during the day as temperatures rise to the upper 20s north and 30s south, with 2 to 4 feet of snow in our mountains this week, it is one of the best ski weekends of the entire season.
