As you’d expect as we get into Spring, things will change quite a bit this week.
Low pressure will pass across New England today, bringing some rain in, mainly this afternoon and evening. With temperatures remaining mild, especially across Massachusetts, there’s even the potential for a rumble of thunder. The system pulls away tonight, setting up a sunny but breezy and cooler day on Tuesday. Another system passes by to the south on Wednesday, close enough for some clouds, but most of the precipitation with the system likely stays south of New England, though we could see a rain or snow shower reach the South Coast. By Thursday, we’ll start to turn milder once again as high pressure slides offshore, setting up the end of the week and the weekend.
On Friday, low pressure will start to head up the Ohio Valley, crossing the Northeast on Saturday as it intensifies. We should be breezy and mild ahead of it, with rain likely Friday night into Saturday. Some of the models show the potential for very strong winds and potentially some heavy rain, but it’s still 5-6 days away, so for now it’s just potential. The system drags a cold front through later on Saturday, which may allow the rain to end as snow across the region, then windy and colder weather settles in for Sunday.
