COOL TEMPS FOR A COUPLE DAYS AT LEAST
Thought I would get in a quick post today to update you on the potential New Year's Day storm. Still looks like it will be a mainly rainstorm, however temperature profiles have trended colder with an expansive high pressure located over SE Canada, near Montreal. This high pressure system will actually keep the precip at bay for a couple of days, by the way it looks right now. Yesterday it looked like rain/snow/sleet would be moving in late Friday night and into Saturday, continuing for a few days. Now it looks like we will have a mostly sunny day on Saturday with increasing clouds on Sunday. With the storm being surpressed to the south for a couple of days by a Canadian high pressure system, I have trended the temperatures colder for Friday - Saturday. Mainly in the upper 30's. We will warm up somewhat on Sunday with highs in the lower 40's and rain developing late in the day. This will be similar to the setup we had Christmas Day. It may begin as a brief period of some sleet/freezing rain, northwest of Route 495, but will quickly transition to plain rain during the day Monday, all the way up to central and northern New England. The storm will come to an end on Monday night and Tuesday morning with leftover snow showers in the mountains of northern New England, with perhaps a small accumulation? Let's hope so. Anyhow, another pool of cooler air will move into all of New England Tuesday with highs back to seasonable levels, in the 30's. Other than that, there is no risk for any major, or even minor - moderate snowstorms for SNE in the near future. Maybe a few flurries this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon.
