January 22nd Update

Next two storms likely to be rain in Southeastern New England

A raw and dreary Monday will give way to steadier rain on Tuesday. It will get milder with gusty southerly winds ahead of a cold front that brings back a winter chill, but only for a few days. Occasional drizzle, mist and showers are likely on Monday. Temperatures will hover in the mid 30s to around 40. Fog, drizzle, mist and showers continue Monday night with temperatures holding steady.

Downpours are likely Tuesday afternoon

Southerly winds bring milder weather, but also rain on Tuesday. Expect downpours from late in the morning through early in the evening. Around an inch of rain is likely in most of RI and SE MA. The temperature will spike into the 50s with the rain and wind gusts over 30 mph near the coast. The wind will be much stronger just off the surface, and a few gusts over 45 mph may mix down to the ground in some heavier downpours. Rain ends between 5-8 pm, and it will turn colder, but not fall below freezing Tuesday night.

Wednesday through Friday look dry and seasonably cold. Expect a gusty breeze on Wednesday as the temperature hovers in the mid 30s. Thursday looks bright, but chilly, highs will be in the upper 20s to mid 30s with less wind. The temperature reaches the mid 30s on Friday with dry skies.

A brief cool-down in the mid to late workweek gives way to more warmth next weekend

The last weekend of January will be relatively mild, with highs well into the 40s on Saturday under sun and clouds. Another cold front sweeps through on Sunday. Expect showers and temps in the 40s/50s before colder weather returns early next week. The storm track likely stays unfavorable for snow in early February. There are signs of more sustained cold weather returning in mid to late February, so the winter hiatus may not last forever.

There’s a good chance of precipitation late next weekend, but it’s not going to be snow
