Balmy Thursday

There is one last balmy day in store for southern New England. Tomorrow morning will start off very mild, in the 50's, with a gusty southerly wind, up to 20-30 mph. The wall of water will only be into Springfield, but it will gradually head its way down the Pike and be in Boston before noontime. The rain will be heavy from noon until about 8PM. All said and done, we will see between one-half and one inch of rainfall. A few places will see up to an inch or more of rainfall. The rain will taper during the overnight hours, where in northern New England we will have the rain change over to snowfall where there is currently a Winter Storm Watch for 7"+ of snow in northern Vermont and northwestern Maine, mainly elevations above 2800'. Early Friday morning there may be a few stray flurries all the way down into the Boston metro area, but that would be just about it.

The snow will fly much of the day in northwestern Maine, where some mountain resorts could come in with close to 10" of snowfall, heavy wet snowfall at that. Then we all have a blustery cold Friday with highs in the low 40's. The weekend looks to be mostly dry with highs on either side of 40 degrees.

There is a small chance that we could see some snow with a clipper on Sunday, but most computer models are taking this clipper further south and the only model showing any snow for southern New England is the GFS and it has een awful as of late, so I am not going with its forecast, just yet.

Check in tomorrow.
