Weekly Outlook: February 13-19, 2023

We’ve got another fairly quiet week coming up with some rather mild weather on the way once again.

We start the week off with low pressure pulling away from the region. Any lingering showers across Cape Cod will end this morning, but skies will remain cloudy. An upper-level disturbance moves through tonight with more clouds, and possibly a few snow showers, mainly north of Route 2. High pressure then builds in for Tuesday with clearing and mild temperatures. The warming trend will continue for Wednesday and Thursday, with highs on Thursday possibly setting some records with temperatures topping 60 in some spots. Wednesday will remain dry, but some rain will develop later on Thursday as low pressure heads toward the St. Lawrence Valley. The rain will end on Friday as the system drags a strong cold front across the region. The timing of this front is a huge question mark right now, and that will have a significant impact on the temperature forecast. The later the front moves through, the more likely we have another warm day with more record highs possible. An earlier frontal passage results in a cooler day. Either way, high pressure builds in for the weekend with dry and much cooler conditions.
