Cold and dry weather continues Wednesday with an increase in clouds. There’s a storm passing out to sea Wednesday night, and it will take most of the precipitation with it.
Temperatures will be near freezing Wednesday afternoon, with a light wind. You’ll likely find sunglasses useful in the morning hours, and by the afternoon, clouds will tend to be thicker and block the sunshine.
Thursday is cloudy with a bit of light snow or flurries along the coast. Highs will be in the mid-30s.
Sunshine returns Friday and Saturday morning with highs remaining in the 30s. As another storm moves south of New England Saturday night, there could be a period snow overnight or rain changing to snow over Cape Cod. This is going to be a big storm, but it still appears most of the energy will stay offshore and mostly miss the area.
Even if there is snow falling on Sunday morning, the rest of the day will turn out mostly sunny; the air will be fairly typical for the time of year. Another storm could potentially play into the forecast Monday night or Tuesday.
The pattern is clearly becoming more active, but whether it ends up bringing a snow event to the region or not over the next week is up in the air.
Wednesday: Increasing clouds, with a high near 32.
Wednesday night: Mostly cloudy, with lows between 20-25 degrees.
Thursday: Lots of clouds. Chance of a few snow showers. Highs in the mid-30s.
Friday: Mostly sunny, highs in the mid 30s.
Saturday: Partly sunny, highs in the mid to upper 30s.
Sunday: Any early snow ending then mostly sunny, with a high near 35.
