Today's Weather: Tranquil For Now, Brush With Storm Possible This Weekend

Weak high pressure will be in control of the weather here in the northeast through Friday. Temperatures will be at or slightly above normal, winds will be light and it’ll remain precipitation-free.

In other words, considering it’s the end of January, it’ll be unusually quiet.

A storm will brush the southeast portion of the state for a brief time on Saturday, as it develops and moves out to sea.

For the most part, temperatures will be above 32, so any precipitation that does fall over Cape Cod and the Islands will be either light wet snow or rain. No accumulation is expected.

By Sunday, the storm will have moved east allowing for some of the clouds to clear. The next cold front will move toward the Commonwealth during the middle of next week with winds turning southwesterly ahead of it, pushing temperatures in some towns toward 50.
