Forecast: Chilly And Wet

A warm front is going to bring a bit of rain and snow to the area during the day today, but this is not going to be anything more than a nuisance. If the ground does turn white, it will all melt away by this evening as temperatures rise into the lower and mid-40s.

As a frontal system pushes off towards the south overnight, there will still be a few lingering rain and snow showers with temperatures falling back down into the 30s .

On Saturday, look for a lot of clouds and a couple of snow showers or rain showers, especially along the south coast as a wave of low pressure passes to our south. Temperatures will remain below average for the time of year.

Sunday is the best day of the weekend, although it is still going to be quite chilly. I do expect a good degree of sunshine mixing with the clouds.

Monday is dry and that will set the stage for a storm system here on Tuesday with more rain or wet snow. The best chance for accumulating snow will be north and west of I-495 and Route 2 and on into northern New England, but we'll have to keep an eye on the temperature profile of this weather system as there could be some accumulating snow closer to the coastline.

This should be the last in the series of storm systems for a little while with a moderating trend towards the end of the week. I don't see any major storms, but at least we should get rid of the unseasonably chilly weather that we've been seeing since the month began.
