As Milder Air Arrives, So, Too, Come Clouds and Showers
Quick Shot of Heavy Rain, Wind and Some Wet Snow Early Wednesday

Mild Air Won't Reach All of New England...But 60s Expected For Some

BLOG1This weekend is bringing a shot of mild air for many in New England, though the goods will not be distributed evenly across the six-state region.  An upper-level atmospheric disturbance Friday delivers periodic showers to most of New England, excepting the Cape and far Southeast Massachusetts, where showers should remain to the north and a mostly cloudy but dry day is expected.  Of course, the showers will help to knock down the pollen count, which has been rising particularly with the introduction of maple pollen this week, and will concurrently decrease the moderate fire danger that contributed to Thursday’s Back Bay Fens brush fire in the reeds along the Muddy River.  Nonetheless, even showers aren’t stopping the move of milder air, transported into New England on a southerly wind and delivering daytime highs in the 50s for many on Friday and a relatively mild night Friday night.  Showers Friday night will shift northward, focused mostly on the northern half of New England where a light mix of rain and freezing rain will create some slick spots into Saturday morning.  Though most of Saturday is expected to be dry, save for some showers in the mountains, not everyone will be equally mild – a southerly wind will deliver highs in the 60s with breaks of sun to much of Southern New England, but it may take more than half the day to get warmth to far Northeast MA, and that warmth may never reach the NH Seacoast points north and east.  A passing cold front will deliver a period of rain from west to east, starting Sunday morning to midday, respectively, and wrapping up Sunday afternoon to early evening and ending as 1-2" of snow in the northern mountains.  Behind the cold front, a fresh shot of cool, dry and bright weather will start next week before a chance of showers at the midweek and week’s end in the exclusive First Alert 10-day forecast.
