    Showers Starting Our Weekend on Friday

    Today (Thursday): Mostly cloudy. Highs around 50. Overnight Thursday Night: Clouds and some fog. Lows in the 40s. Friday: Mild. Scattered showers, patches of fog. Highs around 60. (Published Thursday, March 14, 2019)

    A weak wave of low pressure crossed New England with a few intense snow showers from Vermont to Maine Wednesday night, leaving some areas of snowy and damp ground. That damp ground turned a little bit icy in a few spots, but it is melting rapidly Thursday morning.

    It was pretty much a warm front Wednesday night.

    Counterclockwise flow around that huge storm out west is generating wind the south here Thursday, gusting past 25 mph. Temperatures are going to top 50 degrees in a lot of spots, with a good amount of sunshine.

    We'll experience significant snow melt on Thursday.

    Clouds return Thursday night, with a few rain showers and some patchy fog and drizzle, low temperature above freezing, mostly in the 40s.

    An old front around the big storm is coming into western New England Friday, but it’s losing its energy, and just a few showers are possible. It is a mostly cloudy day with a high temperature close to 60 degrees.

    Wind from the south may gust past 40 mph. We have low pressure that may develop on the front near Cape Cod late in the day, resulting in a heavier burst of rain or thunderstorm in southeastern New England by the evening.

    For most of New England rainfall of less than 1/4 of an inch is anticipated, which is good news because too much rain along with the snowmelt could result in flooding, but it looks like we will not have too much flooding this go around.

    Colder air works in up in the sky Friday night, meaning snow showers for the mountains. Otherwise, slow clearing with a low temperature mostly in the 30s to low 40s.

    Other than clouds and some upslope snow in higher elevations of western and northern New England, Saturday looks like a nice day with a mixture of sun and clouds and a high temperature again close to 50 degrees.

    An additional cold front passes through Saturday night pushing the temperature back down to freezing for many of us. Saint Patrick’s day Sunday looks bright and brisk with a high temperature close to 40 degrees, wind from the northwest 15 to 20 mph.

    The weather map next week features little impulses of low pressure, mostly missing to the west and south. We'll be tracking an arctic air mass coming into Southeastern Canada. That may produce some weather here around the first day of spring, which is on Wednesday.

    It’s also the full moon, and there’s a possibility for a large ocean storm developing at that time. But at this point, it looks like it may stay offshore. It’s definitely something to keep an eye on in our First Alert 10 Day-Forecast.
