Forecast: Mostly Dry, Though Chance Of Rain, Snow Persists

Most of the next couple of days will see dry weather, although there won't be much sunshine. The nor’easter that brought flooding rains to the region continues to spin around close enough to the area, continuing to bring a lot of clouds and occasional precipitation. The risk of precipitation won’t really be gone until Sunday.

I’d estimate eight of the nine or so hours of daylight will be dry, and you’ll also see some breaks of sunshine at times. When it does rain or snow, the precipitation will be light. If the snow does come down hard enough it could briefly coat the ground.

Temperatures with all the clouds and persistent cyclonic flow won’t vary a tremendous amount each day. Highs will be in the upper 30s to near 40, with nighttime lows in the upper 20s. At night, moisture on the ground could create slick spots for early morning commuters, and you may have to scrape your car if it’s outside.

Sunday is the best day of the weekend with highs in the lower 40s and plenty of sunshine.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a few brief showers of rain or snow. Highs in the upper 30s.

Thursday night: Cloudy with a few snow showers. Lows in the upper 20s.

Friday: Changeable skies, but mostly dry with a risk of a shower or flurry. Highs in the upper 30s.

Saturday: A few sunny breaks with lots of clouds. A snow or rain shower. Highs in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees.

Sunday: Mostly sunny with a high near 40 degrees.

Monday: Mostly sunny with highs in the lower 40s.
