The chill returned Saturday, especially across interior northern New England. Even though it was cold, the sun was shining for much of the area.
Don’t get used to the dry, sunny weather – changes are on the way.
A monster coastal storm is sitting off of North Carolina. It’s producing heavy rain, strong winds and major coastal flooding. That storm will start moving north towards us during the day Sunday. Clouds will increase throughout the day. Temperatures will warm into the mid 40s in southern New England and 30s in northern New England. It will feel rather raw when you take into account the clouds and northeast wind.
Rain will move in overnight Sunday and some of that rain will be heavy along the coast. Interior areas could be cold enough for some freezing rain. It’s still to early to tell of significant of a threat it will be, but there could be some icing away from the coast.
Winds will pick up along the coast. Gusts may approach 50 MPH. Coastal flooding is possible during Monday afternoon's high tide. It appears we will only see minor flooding, but there could be pockets of moderate flooding in southern New England.
The system will pull away Tuesday. We will dry out and clear out during the day. Temperatures will warm back into the mid and upper 40s. 50 degree warmth is possible by the end of the week.
Next weekend looks seasonably cool with highs in the mid 40s. No major storms are on the horizon.
