Once we move into the evening, most of the rain and cloud cover will exit the region tonight as a period of dry air and mild weather sets up for a few days. There is the potential for showers to pass to the south of the region Thursday, along with some cooler air. The cooler air will be responsible for pushing the showers to the south so the dry pattern will persist. Friday will be a relatively quiet day with the exception of the Highlands where some snow may accumulate during the day.
Snow showers will be the result of a persistent NW flow of air on Friday. An area of low pressure will move through New England and the flow around the back side of the low will be from the Northwest. The flow will linger into the night and estimates for the snow accumulation range from 1 to 3”. Once the low pushes off the east coast, high pressure enters the area.
The high pressure will keep the skies clear through the weekend. Temperatures will rise slowly each day starting on Saturday and continuing into the middle of the new work week. Highs on Saturday will be in the low 50s then the low 60s on Sunday and the middle 60s Monday and Tuesday. Rain is slated to return to the region Tuesday afternoon.
