March 5 – Quiet and cold midweek

It’s plain old cold for a little while in Southern New England. A few flurries cannot be ruled out Wednesday or Thursday, but for the most part you can expect partly cloudy, breezy, and cold weather to continue. Highs will struggle to get to 30° on Wednesday after starting in the teens, and we’ll do it again on Thursday.

By Friday the temperature should reach the mid 30s with increasing afternoon clouds. A storm system cutting through the Mid-Atlantic states bears watching for coastal snow Friday night. The trend is slightly north with the system over the past few runs, but not far enough north for significant snow. It’s something to keep an eye on, but odds are it will miss or just bring a few flurries to coastal Connecticut Friday night.

Odds of 1″ of snow Friday night are low

The weekend starts with dry weather on Saturday. Expect a high near 40 and some sunshine. A storm system arriving on Sunday will likely change from snow to rain during the day. A minor snow accumulation is possible before the rain – especially inland. If the storm track shifts south, it gets a bit more wintry.

The first half of March will go in the books are relatively cold. There are signs that the cold will ease by mid-month, and it will feel more like March typically does in New England – not exactly warm, but not the winter-like chill that we have right now.
