March 12 – Rain/snow showers Wednesday night

The weather quickly turned cool again on Tuesday with high temperatures a few degrees shy of normal for the middle of March. The breeze made it feel that much cooler. The high sun angle and temps in the 40s helped to melt some of the snow pack which has been hanging tough in Southern New England.

The wind relaxes under clear skies Tuesday night, and the temperature will dip into the 20s for most with some teens in the countryside by dawn on Wednesday. Look for sunshine to give way to clouds on Wednesday. It will be seasonable with a light breeze and highs in the mid 40s.

A weak disturbance passes through Wednesday night

A disturbance zipping through New England Wednesday night may bring passing rain/snow showers. The best chance of snow showers is inland, and it looks like a coating-0.5″ at worst. The timing of any precipitation is between about 9 pm – 3 am. The temperature will fall to the low to mid 30s by dawn on Thursday. If there’s enough precipitation to wet the ground, there may be a few icy spots early in the day. I do not expect it to be a widespread issue. Look for a breezy and mild Thursday afternoon with the temperature possibly reaching the 50s inland, but staying in the 40s near the coast due to the onshore breeze.

Mild with some showers around on Friday

A somewhat disorganized frontal system brings scattered showers through the day on Friday. Expect the temperature to be in the 40s/50s with an active southerly breeze that may gust to 25 mph. The shower threat ends Friday night, and dry weather returns for the weekend. It will stay near 50° on Saturday before it turns cooler on Sunday with highs in the 40s.

Another weak system passes by early next week. Light rain and/or snow is possible Sunday night and/or Monday. At this point, it does not look like much at all. A storm will likely form in the Atlantic Ocean in the middle of next week. The jury is still very much out about how close that storm will come to New England and what impact it will have. It’s too early to speculate with any level of detail, but just be aware that there could be some action between Wednesday and Friday of next week.

Still too early to write it off
