Wet Weather to Begin First Weekend of 2019

Another above average temperature day is ahead Friday, with highs for many in the 40s to near 50! Southwest winds will be busy, steady at 10 to 20 mph with higher gusts.

There may be a few snow showers right along the U.S. and Canadian border, but those will be few and far between.

The next storm to watch arrives on Saturday, mostly as rain. The precipitation will have a hard time making into Northern New England, but there may be a few showers or a brief mix there—the wet weather will just be more widespread in Southern New England. Still, most locations will pick up around a half inch or less. Highs will be in the 30s and 40s.

Behind the storm on Sunday, we will clear out, except in the mountains where upslope snow showers develop. Highs again reach the 30s to near 40.

Monday is quiet before another storm approaches Monday night into Tuesday of next week. It’s still early to know exactly what it will bring to New England, but there is a wintry potential with this.

Several inches of snow are likely in Northern New England Tuesday into Wednesday, with snow likely changing to or mixing with rain in Southern New England for a time.

As the storm departs Wednesday it would likely bring in some colder air, potentially allowing areas that mix to end as snow.

The track will determine exactly who sees rain versus snow, and more importantly, how much.
