January 2 – Rain likely Saturday, low chance of snow

An unsettled stretch of weather is ahead for the next few days. Expect cool rain showers, especially near the coast, on Friday as a disturbance slides by. It will be raw with temps in the low to mid 40s. Another wave of low pressure approaches on Saturday, and it looks like there will be more rain to deal with, especially in the afternoon and night.

Rain is likely Saturday evening

Right now, it looks wet Saturday afternoon and evening as one disturbance moves in from the west and another develops off the coast. The timing of the development offshore is critical for the Saturday night into Sunday forecast. Earlier today it looked like it may happen soon enough for a brief wallop of snow late at night into Sunday morning. Now, it looks like it will be too little, too late, without much snow in CT, RI or SE MA.

Look for temps in the low 40s with the rain Saturday afternoon/evening. It looks soggy at Gillette Stadium for the Pats-Titans game. Good news for the Patriots, maybe, but not great for tailgaters or ticket holders. There is a low chance of snow after midnight into Sunday morning. Right now, it does not look like more than a coating to an inch, but it’s a close call with a plowable snow event if it comes together a bit sooner than currently projected. I’ll keep an eye on it.

Sunday looks dry and chilly in the afternoon. Monday looks mainly dry with a snow shower possible and highs in the mid 30s. Another storm system makes a run at New England late Tuesday into early Wednesday. Right now, I expect mainly rain or mix in CT, RI and SE MA. A slight shift south in the storm’s track would bring a better chance of snow.

The end of next workweek looks chilly before temperatures moderate next weekend. A relatively stormy pattern could bring more wet or mixed precipitation weather next weekend. The general pattern looks mild in mid-January.
