You know we are in a snow drought when flurries & a passing snow shower gets you jazzed up! Haha….that has been the case the past 24 hours and once again today. The flurries/snow showers are from a storm waaaay offshore and staying offshore but it has been pushing moisture at the New England coastline—and succeeding. The amount of snow is harmless as most towns affected by a snowshower get a coating-1″ and the rest of us may see a few flurries through the day.
We are back into the sunshine for both tomorrow and again on Saturday but two different days. Tomorrow is seasonal as temps reach the mid 30s but an arctic front crashes into New England late tomorrow night that will send the temps down into the single numbers by early Saturday morning! Those temps will struggle to recover during the day on Saturday as most towns only reach the low 20s. The good news though as that there is very little (if any) wind on Saturday—fantastic day for skiing!
As for Sunday we are milder with temps starting in the low 30s (warmer that all day Saturday!) and reaching the low to mid 40s by afternoon. Unfortunately an impending storm will warm us up as well as throw clouds & eventually rain into southern New England. I think most of the afternoon is just clouds & sprinkles but after 5-6pm scattered showers happen. As for the Pats game, grab the rain gear for Gillette. At first it’s just sprinkles & isolated showers but the second half of the game most likely sees steadier rain. Timing can still delay the steady rain though so stay tuned! In any event, a slug of heavy rain & wind appears likely very late Sunday Night-early Monday morning with most towns near an inch of rain & wind gusts between 20-40mph.
Fear not skiers—this storm is mainly a snowstorm up in ski country Monday (traveling back to metro Boston may be tricky Monday morning though).
