Relatively mild weather continues through the middle of this week in the wake of the weekend snowstorm. An ocean storm on Friday will likely not come close enough to bring steady snow to Southeastern New England. We haven’t totally slammed the door on a farther west track, but it’s pretty close to a done deal.
The weather will stay mild through the weekend into early February. We’re watching a system early next week that may bring either light rain or mixed precipitation Monday night into Tuesday. After that, it looks relatively mild into the midweek. A cold front passing through in the midweek will bring colder weather late in the workweek. However, the pattern still does not look entirely favorable for a snowy storm track in Southeastern New England. When storms develop, the storm track looks to be too far west for all snow in RI and SE MA through early February.
