Weekly Outlook: January 4-10, 2021

We’ve got a fairly quiet week coming up, but that doesn’t mean sunshine and mild weather the entire time.

The storm system that brought us some rain and snow yesterday and last night will slowly pull away from the region today, but we’ll still have plenty of clouds, and maybe a few more showers, mainly across southeastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod. By Tuesday, the storm will stall out near Atlantic Canada, but the flow around it may help produce a few ocean-effect rain or snow showers, especially across eastern parts of the region. By Wednesday, the system pulls away and high pressure builds in with dry and seasonably cool conditions into Friday.

By Friday night, low pressure will be moving off the North Carolina coastline and headed off toward the northeast. Right now, it looks like this system will pass too far to the south and east to have any impact on us, except possibly Cape Cod and southeastern Massachusetts, but it’s still 5 days away and things can change, so we’ll keep an eye on it. Once that system pulls away on Saturday, high pressure builds back in for next weekend.

For now, the models are in agreement that a storm stays well to our south Friday night. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.
