    Weather Forecast: Rain Gives Way to Morning Sun

    Thursday night: Cloudy & mild. Rain arrives toward AM. 40s. Friday: Showers depart, developing sun. Windy. 50 and falling. Saturday: Bright and chilly. Low 30s.

    (Published Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018)

    Incoming warmth and moisture has been producing widely varied conditions at times across New England starting with rain showers that exited early in the south, then pockets of dense fog and black ice, and now more clouds than sun taking over but teaming with a southwest breeze gusting to 25 mph to bump temperatures into the 50s for many, 40s north.

    Sitting on the edge of cold air to our north and warmer air to our south makes New England vulnerable to precipitation from any nearby disturbances, and one is forecast to move overhead tonight through Friday morning’s commute, prompting rain showers and pockets of fog with mild overnight temperatures hovering in the 40s.

    A flow of new, colder, Canadian air will begin regionwide on Friday, but will be gradual enough to allow southern New England to sneak back above 50 degrees, then cool into the 40s later in the day with the mountains in the 30s.

    After a cold Friday night, Saturday will be fair and chilly... setting us up for a round of accumulating snow overnight Saturday — starting after dinner — ending around breakfast Sunday and most likely dropping two to four inches of snow with some locally higher amounts... though it’s still early to say for sure.

    Sun returns Sunday with melting as many of us rise into the 40s, then mild air continues building Monday and Tuesday, before some cooling in the middle to end of next week in the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
