Quiet for now, action picks up next week

Tuesday afternoon was quite nice with plenty of sunshine in southern New England. The clear skies will last for a few more days with it turning a bit colder on Wednesday. Low temperatures Tuesday night will be in the mid to upper 20s. Wednesday looks bright and cool, with highs in the low 40s. Thursday should be similar, but a few degrees milder, with highs in the mid 40s. There will be some nice weather at the start of the weekend. Friday and Saturday will both be partly cloudy with highs in the 40s.

Crank up the hype machine

As we have been telling Right Weather Pro members in the Long Range Forecast, the weather is likely to get stormy from late in the weekend into next week. The first storm will bring some rain and snow to Southern New England Sunday into Monday. It is still too early to determine the exact track, but there is a decent chance of wintry precipitation from Worcester to the Berkshires and in parts of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Closer to the coast, the odds favor at least a mix of rain and snow, if not mainly rain – especially at the start of the storm. Colder air will move into CT, RI, and SE MA as the storm departs on Monday, it may be enough to change rain to snow. Some models show the potential for accumulating snow, but it is still very early in the game and a lot could change. See the pictures below for how one computer handles the situation. That black dashed line trailing behind the red L is called a “Norlun Trough”.

If one potential winter storm is not enough to excite snow-lovers in the Northeast, it looks like there could be at least one more in the middle of next week, followed by the potential for some stormy weather closer to Christmas. Again, it’s too early to talk specifics on these storms, but there is potential for several bouts of wintry weather in the Northeast between 12/16 and 12/27.
