Weekly Outlook: January 27-February 2, 2020

This week’s outlook is a lot like last week’s. Dry weather during the week thanks to a large area of high pressure, then questions for the weekend.

For Monday through Friday, we’ve got a large area of high pressure in control. We’ll still have plenty of clouds around on Monday as an upper-level low pressure system moves across the Northeast. Clouds may linger into Tuesday, and with a northerly flow, we could even see some ocean-effect snow showers across the Outer Cape late Tuesday and Tuesday night. Not much accumulation is expected, but a few spots on the Outer Cape could see an inch or so. Wednesday through Friday will feature partly to mostly sunny skies, with chilly temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday, and some moderation on Friday.

That brings us to next weekend. Once again, many of the models are showing the potential for a storm to impact the region. Some of the models even have it as a powerful storm. Once again, they aren’t anywhere close to agreement on the track of this system though. Some have a storm so far offshore that it will have little to no impact on us. Some have it so close that we get moderate to heavy snow inland with rain across southeastern New England. Others have it just far enough offshore to impact only areas south of Boston. On top of that, many of these models haven’t been consistent from one run to the next.So, once again, we’ll just wait and see what develops. If it looks like it could be a threat, we’ll have a special blog post later in the week.
