Today marks the 45th anniversary of the Blizzard of 1978. Nothing remotely similar is expected this week.
We start the week off with a few showers across Cape Cod as low pressure passes well to the south of the region. Despite the cloudcover, and it’ll be another mild day. Tuesday will be a little cooler as high pressure builds in, but temperatures will remain above normal for early February. Another front approaches at night with some rain or snow showers possible. High pressure returns for Wednesday with dry and mild conditions once again. Another system moves in on Thursday with more rain, possibly starting as a little sleet or snow north and west of Boston. Friday looks to be quite mild with partial sunshine, but another system quickly follows for Friday night into early Saturday with more rain, possibly some snow well north and west of Boston. High pressure builds back in on Sunday.
