Wrapping up Sunday with a few wintry showers, otherwise becoming quiet. The threat for slick and icy roads will hang around for the overnight hours on untreated surfaces. Do take your time, and be mindful of glare ice. A ridge of high pressure noses north, allowing for clouds to decrease overnight. During the overnight our wind direction will shift from south to west, a light 5-10 breeze is to be expected. Overnight lows will fall to the middle and upper 20s to the low 30s, keeping today’s mess frozen.
Monday starts with a few area of morning clouds, then becoming mostly sunny during the late morning. Afternoon temperatures will climb into the upper 30s to the mid 40s, mild for late February (34° is average afternoon high). Outside a few clouds, Monday night into early Tuesday morning is still mainly clear. Overnight lows will remain mild as well, only falling to the upper 20 and low 30s (15° is average morning low). High pressure still is in control for Tuesday, meaning another mostly sunny day. Afternoon highs reach the mid and upper 40s.
Wednesday starts off quiet, with a few more clouds than the previous two days. Right now, the forecast calls for a weak cold front to move in from the west during the early afternoon. Before the front arrives, daytime high could reach near 50°. As for Sunday evening, the front doesn’t look well organized. That being said, a few isolated valley rain and mountain wintry mix is possible. Thursday we sneak in a brief area of high pressure, while mainly dry, we will have more clouds than sun.
Friday, we are watching a potential coastal storm off of Southern New England. Right now forecasts show our region seeing scattered rain, and wintry mix. Over the next few days more confident details will arise.
Have a great night!
