Low pressure in the Canadian Maritimes will continue to rotate clouds and occasional rain or snow showers through the area this weekend. Although a peek of sunshine is possible it will be cloudy most of the time. Precipitation pinwheels around the low and might cross southern New England at times. Precipitation will be on the light side and should be in the form of snow showers early Saturday and again Saturday night into early Sunday, with rain showers during the afternoon hours on Saturday. Keep in mind that most of the time it will remain dry as the precipitation is not expected to be widespread. Actually, the chance for any precipitation is only about 20%.
Temperatures over the weekend will range from the upper 30s to low 40s during the day, falling into the upper 20s to 30 degrees tonight and mid to upper 20s Sunday night. Winds are expected to remain under 15 mph throughout the weekend.
Changeable skies continue into Monday as the Maritime disturbance continues to meander about. This means considerable cloudiness and seasonably cool temperatures. A chance of a sprinkle or flurry is possible as well. Highs continue into the low 40s, overnight lows in the upper 20s. Don’t expect much change for Tuesday as the blocking pattern continues. There might be more sunshine at times but overall the weather should remain status quo.
Early next week a storm will come out of the Plains States and move into the Tennessee Valley. By Wednesday morning computer guidance has this storm positioned on the mid-Atlantic coast. It will be monitored over the weekend and especially early next week to determine the exact track of the storm and potential impacts on our area mid week. It does appear the storm will grow into a significant ocean storm and could bring an array of impacts, if it decides to move close enough to our area. That remains to be seen at this point. If the storm does impact the area it will probably begin to rain or snow here Wednesday into Wednesday night perhaps not ending until Thursday morning.
