    Quiet weather today before a wintry weekend weather.

    A weather front that passed out to sea early Wednesday, and changed the weather to cold for most of the nation, will turn around and come back at New England for the weekend.

    That front stalled offshore and we have one low-pressure system after another riding along the front stalled from Georgia to south of New England.

    The wave moving off Texas into the Gulf of Mexico will bring snow to Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and then up the eastern seaboard today into tomorrow.

    For today we have increasing clouds with seasonable temperatures near 40 degrees and not much wind. Cloudy and dry overnight, low in the 20s.

    Snow arrives in New England at the south coast on Saturday morning, it'll be warm enough that it's mostly rain on Cape Cod and along the immediate shoreline.

    The snow will advance northward into the Merrimack Valley by late afternoon, and then into northern New England during the evening.

    Snowfall should not be that intense, with rates of about 1/4 of an inch or less per hour. But eight hours at that rate gives 2 to 4 inches of snow through the duration.

    Because much of the snow is falling during the day and temperatures are marginally cold, snow should accumulate more on non-paved surfaces, though higher elevations and on the north side of hills we may have to do some minor plowing of the snow.

    There is not much wind, but it is coming on from the ocean where water temperatures are 50, so rain is more likely than snow, but may end as snow.
