Wednesday afternoon featured plenty of sunshine after the storm responsible for the morning snow moved away from Southern New England. Rhode Island received less than 2″ of snow, Bristol County, MA saw 1-3″, and Cape Cod and the islands shoveled 3-7″ of powdery snow. Highs were only in the low to mid 20s on Wednesday, and it will be very cold Wednesday night with clear clouds and fresh snow on the ground. Lows will range from the single digits in the countryside to low to mid teens in the cities and near the coast.
Thursday, although cool for late-January, will not be as cold as the past couple of days. Highs will be near 30 with mostly sunny skies and a light breeze. Friday looks quiet as a small storm misses Southern New England to the east. It will be seasonable, with highs in the mid to upper 30s under partly cloudy skies.
Right now, the weekend looks mostly cloudy, but not too wet or white. Highs will be in the upper 30s to low 40s both Saturday and Sunday. A cold front will ease through sometime Sunday. There may be a few rain showers as it passes. The will be fairly quiet early next week before becoming active by midweek. A storm moving out of the Southeast will threaten Southern New England with snow and/or rain late Tuesday or Wednesday.
