The storm system that gave us rain and some snow yesterday is moving well off the New England coast as high pressure builds in from the west. Today will be a breezy day with partly sunny skies and seasonably mild temperatures with highs in the 40s.
A rather potent storm system will give us precipitation from late Wednesday morning ending before sunrise on Thursday. The precipitation may start off as a burst of snow before changing to rain, snow accumulations of 1-2″ are possible before the changeover. Temperatures will rise into the 40s by late in the day which will wash all the snow away. Rainfall amounts of 1 to 1 1/2″ likely.
As the storm system moves away from us we will dry out on Thursday but it will be windy with possible gusts to 40 mph. Early highs in the 40s will drop to the 30s by sunset.
Mainly dry weather with continued above normal temperatures Friday through most of the weekend. A weak frontal system may touch off some rain showers Sunday night.
