Rainstorm Friday to Coldest Air of the Season

We have really nothing going on this week. Tomorrow and Thursday will be typical mid January days with highs in the low 30's with some sunshine and clouds and light winds. Morning temperatures will be in the teens regionwide. Then we watch the Gulf of Mexico that will throw a storm at us later Thursday that may start as a very brief period of some snow. That will quickly change to sleet and then rain here in SNE and we will be seeing plain rain for the morning commute on Friday morning. All the snow will be confined to northwest New England where a few to several inches is not out of the question. It may be heavy at times until about midday before we clear out later in the afternoon and wait for an Arctic front on Saturday that may spawn a scattered flurry or squall later Saturday, before Sunday will be the coldest day in over a year. Highs on Sunday may not get out of the single digits. Morning lows on Sunday and Monday will be below zero. It will be battery killing cold later this weekend and early next week. We should moderate as the week progresses, but still be pretty chilly.

Early call on the Pats game at 3PM Sunday looks to be very cold with gametime temperatures around 10 above and windchills likely below zero under mostly sunny Arctic skies. Dress warm if you are lucky enough to go to the game. Another AFC Championship on its way to New England after last years flook with Indianapolis.
