Hyperactive Weather Pattern Ahead

April showers anyone? It looks like the first week of the month will feature more than its fair share of unsettled weather in Southeastern New England. Showers are likely on Friday. Saturday morning will be rainy. Sunday morning may feature rain and snow. Rain and/or snow returns Monday afternoon. And, there’s another storm ahead for late next week. Phew!

A fast-moving storm system will bring rain late Saturday night. The rain will change to snow before ending Sunday morning. Heavy snow bands could lead to 2″ per hour for 1-2 hours before 10 am in Southeastern New England. Snow ends completely by 10-11 am in all of Southeastern New England, sooner in RI. Strong winds, with gusts over 50 mph are possible all day, with the best chance of damaging gusts in the hours after the snow ends. It will be partly sunny and chilly in the afternoon. Highs will be 36-40.

More snow is likely on Monday as a storm passes south of New England. 1-3″ of accumulation is possible on the grass, but pavement will be wet. Highs in the low to mid 30s with the best chance of snow between sunrise and sunset. Winds will not be a big factor.

Tuesday and Wednesday look dry and chilly. Lows will be in the 20s, highs in the 40s. Clouds thicken on Thursday, and just as it gets mild again there will be more rain heading for New England. A rain storm is possible late next week.
