Forecast: Windy, Colder Today, With A Bit Of Snow Possible Friday

A windy, colder air mass will move across Greater Boston today. However, there will be plenty of sunshine.

A fast-moving storm off the Mid-Atlantic coast will head toward the region on Friday. We will be on the northern edge of the system and a period of light snow can be expected with an inch or 2 of accumulation around Boston.

Higher snow totals will be confined to the South Shore and Cape Cod and the Islands, and to our south in Rhode Island and Connecticut.

This storm will intensify well to our east Saturday, with gusty northwesterly winds and a reinforcement of arctic air in its wake. Sunshine will prevail Sunday with temperatures moderating slightly as winds diminish.

Next week looks interesting as another storm develops to our southwest and makes its way to the coast. Indications are that the storm will blossom into a major nor’easter Tuesday into Wednesday. It’s still too early to determine its exact strength or track, but it has the potential to bring significant snow accumulations to much of the northeast.
