    Wintry Mix Heading to New England Late This Week

    Today (Wednesday): Winter sun with highs in the 30s. Overnight Wednesday Night: Variable clouds. Lows around 20. Thursday: Mostly sunny. Highs in the 30s. (Published Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2018)

    A weak front crosses New England Wednesday with fair weather clouds occasionally dimming an otherwise sunny sky. Eventually, it will be yielding only a few late day flurries to the North Country on Wednesday afternoon and evening.

    Well to our west, a new storm developing Thursday will slow travel through places like Chicago with rain and wind, and Minneapolis with snow. That storm will move east to arrive here in New England Thursday night through Friday.

    With cold air ahead of the storm, it’s likely that much of New England will find at least a quick burst of a wintry mix at night. However, warmth streaming ahead of the storm on a strengthening southerly wind will mean a fairly quick change to rain Friday morning for most, with accumulating snow to a mix in Northern New England, eventually likely to change to rain Friday, as well.

    Rain ships out Friday night and on Saturday, a northwest wind will renew snow showers in Northern mountains while the rest of New England finds mild air early Saturday. Then, new cool air breezes in Saturday afternoon and leaves behind a chilly Sunday.

    Several disturbances will ripple through the sky over New England Sunday onward next week, and this means an increased chance for snow or snow showers with cold air holding on.

    While it’s early in such a pattern to be confident on the timing of snow chances, you’ll find the chances elevated on all days but Monday in our exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
