As expected a weak disturbance brought us a dusting of snow overnight, just enough to be a nuisance if you were out early this morning. Later today a developing ocean storm well to the southeast of New England will take shape and become a significant storm for Atlantic Canada. The system will get its act together too late to give us any significant snow, however we can expect flurries or a few snow showers into tonight. Another coating of snow to maybe a half inch or so will just about do it. Nothing that is going to make any difference to the below normal snow totals that we have experienced so far this winter season. Cape Cod and the islands have a better chance for accumulating snow since they are closer to the storm.
As the low pulls away it will become windy behind the system, especially for Monday. Temperatures remain several degrees below normal and with the wind chill factor it is going to feel much colder than what the thermometer tells you. Weak high pressure will give the area a more tranquil day Tuesday as another weak disturbance scoots south of New England later Tuesday and Wednesday. This should only bring us mostly cloudy skies and a chance of flurries or a snow shower or two for Tuesday night and Wednesday. No appreciable accumulation is expected. Like so many systems that have just missed us this winter, only trace amounts of snow would be all we receive, if we get anything at all.
High pressure will build in Thursday, with slightly moderating temperatures as abundant sunshine returns.
A late week storm may impact the area. Details on that early in the week.
