For Most, A Breather Between Storms Lasts a Few Days
Weekend Storm Won't Be a Big Blow to Ski Country Snow

New England's Window of Quiet Weather Is Slowly Closing

LKN_FRONTS_BOSDMA (1)The end of our recent breather in the weather is in sight for New England, but there won’t be many complaints at the end of our Thursday.  Aside from a narrow swath of light snow ejecting into the Gulf of Maine from Central and Eastern parts of the Pine Tree State, New England is fairly quiet today, save for an active northwest wind.  In fact, while Central and Southern New England have been breezy for the last 36-48 hours, some Northern New England communities saw little wind during the heavy snow, so now that wind is increasing, new power outages are resulting in the mountainous terrain. Elsewhere, we’ll salvage not only a bright and dry Thursday, but a quiet Thursday night and dry daylight hours Friday until an approaching warm front triggers some pockets of light rain and snow after dinner Friday evening into the first half of the overnight. Total snow and rain amounts will be quite limited and predominantly in Southern and Western New England, but that bit of moisture on area roads may require some treatment with temperatures near freezing.  Clouds will be stubborn Saturday as the air in the sky over New England slowly but steadily warms ahead of an approaching storm over the Great Lakes, poised to deliver enough warmth for Saturday night and Sunday rain, eventually even ending as rain showers in much of Northern New England after a burst of mountain snow at the onset.  By the time the Patriots take the field at Gillette Stadium Sunday afternoon, the heaviest rain will be over with just lingering showers here and there, and a break in the action until the next potential storm later Tuesday into early Wednesday, more likely to deliver a broader area of snow as colder air moves in.  The rest of the 10-day looks cold, leading to another potential storm by late next weekend.
