Weekly Outlook: January 30- February 5, 2017

So, who’s ready for more winter weather?

That’s what we thought. Well, you’re out of luck, because not only is it going to turn colder this week, it’s going to snow too! Control your enthusiasm everyone – it’s not going to snow a lot.

The week starts off with a weak storm system passing to our south today. It may produce some snow showers along the South Coast and across the Cape and the Islands, with little accumulation expected. For the rest of us, it’ll just be a cloudy day. It’ll clear out tonight, and turn colder, but clouds quickly come back Tuesday morning as an Alberta Clipper (more likely a Saskatchewan Screamer and maybe even a Manitoba Mover) quickly heads towards the region. Some light snow will develop a little after dinner time, and continue overnight, likely changing to rain south of Boston. It all winds down before midday on Wednesday, with most of us getting an inch or two. Not a big deal, right? A few more snow showers are possible that afternoon as an upper-level disturbance moves through, but then high pressure builds in for the rest of the week and into the weekend with sunshine along with breezy and colder conditions. As we get to later Sunday (around the time the Patriots should be hoisting Lombardi Trophy #5) some more snow is possible as the next storm system starts to approach the region. That one could bring us some more snow into Monday, but we’ll worry about that one later in the week.

Most of us will only see an inch or two (maybe three) from the system Tuesday night and early Wednesday. Image provided by Pivotal Weather.
