There are a couple of mixed precipitation events that will be mainly rain in Southern New England in the next five days. We cover them in-depth in other posts, so we will not dwell on them too much here. The first one is rain to snow Friday night. It looks like an inch or less in most of RI and SE MA, with the potential for a couple of inches in the hills of NW RI and Worcester County. The second system runs into cold air Sunday night. Snow or a mix will break out before dawn Monday, and it will change to rain on Monday. We’ll have an accumulation map for that event in the next day or two. It looks like a quick change at the coast, and maybe a couple of inches inland.
We’re keeping an eye on a trailing system on Tuesday that could spread light snow into Southeastern New England. It hasn’t been talked about much, but it cannot be ruled out. After that, it’s cold and dry through the end of the workweek. We can’t talk specifics (because we don’t know them!) on week two. The bottom-line is it will stay cool to cold, and there may be a storm or two that comes out of the south and through the Mid-Atlantic. There is also the possibility Alberta Clippers in the northern branch of the jet stream. It’s a moderate to high potential setup for some stormy weather in the Northeast.
