Midweek storm trending south, may miss Southern New England

Storm-weary Southern New Englanders may catch a break next week as a storm moves off the Mid-Atlantic coast into the Atlantic Ocean. The latest information suggests that the storm will slide to see with little, if any, impact in Southern New England. It’s too soon to sound the all-clear with this slow-moving system, but I am cautiously optimistic that it’s not going to be a big deal, and I would not be surprised if it was dry for the week.

The weekend looks dry and cool. The wind will stay active, especially Saturday afternoon. Look for highs in the low to mid 40s, but feeling like the 30s with a 15-30 mph breeze. It will be a bit colder on Sunday, with lows in the teens to low 20s early in the day. Expect highs in the upper 30s to low 40s.

It looks like the storm is heading out to sea by midday Wednesday
While the ensemble mean is well offshore, there are still a few members that are too close for comfort, so I’m not ready to totally write off the storm coming close enough for some snow/wind in Southern New England

The weather stays dry early next week. Spring arrives at 12:15 p.m. EDT on Tuesday with the possibility of a little light snow or flurries near the coast. It likely will not amount to anything, and the high will be near 40. The second part of the midweek storm forecast is trending south, and getting close to being completely off the table. Wednesday looks like a dry and (what else?) cool day with highs in the low 40s. Based on current projections, the best chance of any precipitation is late Wednesday night into Thursday morning in Eastern Massachusetts as the storm swings out to sea. It would not be a big deal, and odds favor it staying dry.

There is a low chance of 3″ of snow in RI and SE MA as the storm moves out to sea in the midweek
