BOSTON A bright and sunny morning will lead to a typical late January afternoon. Temperatures will still remain below freezing today, but, with barely any wind, it won’t feel very cold in the sunshine.
Clouds move back into the area on Friday, with temperatures finally rising to and above the melting point. Highs should reach the mid to upper 30s by 1 or 2 p.m. on Friday. There isn’t much snow left on the ground in most places, but some of it will melt Friday.
The clouds will remain this weekend, and there could be a few quick rain or snow showers Saturday. Highs will once again reach into the 30s.
On Sunday, expect to see a few breaks of sunshine through a thick deck of clouds. With a southwest breeze, temperatures will reach the highest levels since last Monday, when we hit the 40s for a few hours. The weather will be similar in the New York/New Jersey area, and couldn’t be much better this time of year for an outdoor game.
The work week starts with dry weather and no arctic air. This will be a tranquil period that could lead into stormier weather in the middle of the week.
The details on a storm sometime around next Wednesday are not clear. Most of our models are indicating some storm development next week, the details of which won’t be known until late in the weekend. These things often change multiple times before they happen, so just keep in mind that something might be happening next Wednesday.
