Southern New England is slowly digging out from a mammoth blizzard that left up to 40″ of snow and hundreds of thousands without power as it roared by Friday night into Saturday. Snow totals in Rhode Island ranged from about a foot in Little Compton to nearly 28″ in the NW part of the state. Click here for a full report
Skies were clearing in most of Southern New England by late in the day. There were still some ocean effect snow bands impacting Cape Cod. The clearing trend will continue this evening, and the wind will diminish, leading to very good conditions for a frigid night. The low temperature will be near 0 in the normal cold spots, close to 10 degrees in the city, and in the low to mid teens near the coast.
Sunday looks quiet, but cool, with highs in the upper 20s. A storm system will cut west of Southern New England on Monday, bringing the chance of a wintry mix or rain during the day. The temperature will rise into the upper 30s to low 40s. The rain will not be heavy enough to cause flooding.
The midweek looks decent, with seasonably cool conditions and dry skies. A storm will move from the Southeast to the Mid-Atlantic on Thursday. It’s possible that it will track close enough to threaten Southern New England with another snowfall. It’s equally possible that the storm will pass harmlessly out to sea – which would be a welcome sight to many in New England.
