Much more tranquil weather is in store for Thursday.
Wednesday's crazy variety pack of weather was due to two different storms, a major ocean storm from the south, and a powerful front from southeastern Canada. Those two storms are now merging into another superstorm over eastern Canada, sending in some chilly, but dry air to New England Thursday.
Wind Thursday morning is still gusting 20 to 30 mph, but should not increase too much during the day. With more sun than clouds, high temperatures will rise to the 40s in northern New England, to low 50s south. Wind is from the west 15 to 20 mph on average.

Friday, the wind starts coming off the ocean, from the east 10 to 20 mph, with clouds filling the sky. A warm front moving in from the southwest will generate rain showers, mixed with snow in the higher elevations, in western New England during the afternoon.

Low pressure should push off the coast of New England early Saturday. After a gray start, we should be partly to mostly sunny by noon. Temperatures will be rebounding well into the 50s to near 60 degrees, with not too much in the way of wind.

The next front arrives from the west Sunday night with clouds increasing, and rain, or mountain snow developing at night or early Monday. Then we may have a couple of days of rather gray weather, and occasional rain, which may be mixed with, or change to snow in the mountains.
