The parade of Alberta Clippers we expected to occur in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast is turning into just that in Southern New England – a parade, as in the kind that you sit and watch go by. For the second time in three days a storm is developing south of Nantucket and heading for the Canadian Maritimes with little to no impact in Southern New England. Snow showers and flurries are likely on the Eastern Massachusetts coast Sunday and Sunday night, but it does not look like more than an inch will accumulate. Add that to the inch that fell on the Cape Saturday night, and the total for the weekend will be a mere 2″.
It will be partly to mostly cloudy in Rhode Island and interior Southeast Massachusetts on Sunday. The high temperature will be in the low 30s. The sky may clear late at night in RI, and the temperature will fall into the upper teens to mid 20s by dawn Monday. Any light snow in SE MA should end by Monday morning.
Chilly week ahead
It will be partly sunny and cool Monday afternoon. The high temperature will be in the upper 20s to low 30s again. Monday night looks clear and cold. Lows will be in the teens. Another Alberta Clipper will make a run at Southern New England in the midweek. Once again, it does not look like it will amount to much. Tuesday should see a gradual increase in late-day clouds, with highs generally in the upper 20s. Wednesday looks mostly cloudy with scattered snow showers. Highs will be in the low 30s on Wednesday.
One more system is in the forecast for late this week. Right now, it looks like it has the most potential for the I-95 corridor to bring some snow. The track of the late-week system is in question, and if it heads too far north then there may be some mixed precipitation or rain near the coast.
