Forecast: Temperatures Cool Down, Storms On The Way

This article is more than 1 year old.

It's a cold morning across Southern New England with temperatures in the 20s and low 30s. There won't be much wind today and readings will reach into the 40s to near 50 this afternoon. We have more wet weather on the way, with two storms coming this week. The first will arrive tomorrow with rain; this is not looking like a major storm system, but even a quarter to three quarters of an inch of rain isn't needed.

Both your morning and evening commute today will be fine, but at least the morning commute tomorrow will be wet.  The rain will tend to taper off before the full onslaught of the evening commute on Tuesday.

High pressure will build in from Canada on Wednesday and Thursday for two very cold days for this time of the year. The weather has not been typical lately, and even our extreme seem a bit more extreme. We're at the upper end of moisture and the lower end of temperature in terms of long-term averages.

Friday, a new storm system will move up the coastline and with the cold air in place, this could bring the first snow to many areas. Don't worry — this isn't going to turn into a major snowstorm, but it could be the first time the ground turns white, especially away from the coastline. The snow will quickly change to rain Friday morning and anything that does fall will be washed away. As long as the storm keeps moving, it will be able to clear out Friday night and that should set us up for a dry weekend.
