Today's Weather: Another Relatively Warm, Dry Start To The Week With Little Snow In Sight

If you love winter and deep cold and snow, this has not been your season. We're going to close out the month of January on a relatively mild note, with temperatures above average for this week and not much in the way of precipitation until perhaps later in the weekend.

A small weather system will bring some clouds and a couple of sprinkles or flurries early today, but that's not going to ruin anyone's plans or slow down the commute into work any more than a typical Monday morning.

The rest of the work week looks dry. With temperatures right around that 40-degree mark, this will continue to keep the ground open, and the frost really hasn't gone very deep this season.

Later in the weekend, a storm system will approach from the south. This may or may not bring significant amounts of rain or perhaps even snow to northern sections of New England.

This will be the third weekend in a row with potential for some sort of weather system, and we should definitely keep an eye on things. For now, let's just enjoy the tranquil weather and have a good start to the week.
