February 10th Update

Remember February 2015? How could you forget it? While this February will not be as cold or snowy, it is shaping up to be snowier than normal, and parts of New England will see a few feet of snow in a 10 day span starting with the Blizzard that hit on Thursday. A weak system coming through Friday night into early Saturday will spread light snow through RI and SE MA from late in the evening until about 7 AM. It does not look like more than an inch or two of snow accumulation, and the precipitation may end as light rain near the coast. Expect dry skies with a few sunny breaks and highs in the low 40s on Saturday afternoon.

Another storm system arrives on Sunday. This one is tricky with a better chance of rain near the coast, and wet snow possible north and west of the I-95 corridor in RI and SE MA. It looks like the precipitation will arrive in the morning and become steadier in the afternoon. Your best bet for 2-4″ of snow Sunday afternoon is in the higher terrain of NW RI. As the storm passes by Sunday night, colder air will move in, and rain may change to snow from north to south. A minor snow accumulation is possible in the I-95 corridor to the coast, with temperatures getting near or below freezing overnight, and some icy roads. It will also become windy early Monday, with 30+ mph gusts possible.

Any snow will wind down on Monday morning, and dry/seasonable weather is likely on Valentine’s Day. It will stay dry through most or all of Wednesday, but I’m watching Wednesday night and Thursday for another potent storm. The potential exists for another Nor’easter, but the track is uncertain. It’s too early to say if it’s all snow or a mix of rain and snow. I’ll keep you posted.
