Meteorological Winter is the 3 coldest months of the year–December, January & February. hard to believe we are already approaching the halfway mark of winter! The first half can be summed up as either warm & wet or cold & dry. Moving forward I don’t see much change to that mantra over the next 7 days.
We have more cold & dry weather on tap for today and again tomorrow. Despite dry conditions clouds will be all over the place and perhaps a few flurries at times. Much the same tomorrow. The reason for the clouds/flurries isn’t due to a storm rather just the by product of arctic air passing over the warmer ocean (similar to lake effect clouds/snow near Buffalo NY). Friday will offer more sunshine.
The Holiday Weekend feature two of the the three days dry. The one unsettled day will be Sunday as an ocean storm scrapes southern New England (Ski Country this will NOT bother you guys) with some rain. I think most of the rain is focused along & east of I-95 Sunday afternoon and evening. Sadly, this includes the Pats game as well as tailgating. Forecasting rain means temps will not be cold, it’s looking like low 40s for the afternoon & evening. Cold & dry weather returns early next week.
