EVENING: Increasing clouds, not as cold. Temps near 30.

TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Not As Cold. Lo 26.

FRIDAY: Scattered snow showers, coating to one inch. Hi 36.

Clouds will increase late today ahead of tomorrow’s clipper. It will be cloudy tonight, but not as cold, with lows in the mid-20s.

Tomorrow’s clipper system could bring us some scattered snow showers, with a coating to an inch of snow likely. Given the colder air tomorrow as the snow is falling this has the potential of creating a quick coating on roads and sidewalks. Not as much snow is expected during the day Saturday as the coastal storm develops just to our east.

The main attention this weekend will be on a strengthening winter storm along the coast that could bring blizzard conditions to parts of coastal New England. The track may continue to wobble a bit even as we close in on the actual storm developing. That being said, all signals point to the bulk of this storm staying mainly east of our region. It will be chilly and windy through Saturday locally with highs only in the low 20s. Wind chills will likely be in the single digits as the storm pulls away up the coast.

The back half of the weekend remains chilly but mainly dry with highs staying in the upper 20s. A warming trend will take place next week as highs rebound into the 40s by Tuesday, and potentially even 50s toward mid-week. High pressure will keep us mainly dry until a cold front approaches later next week.
