Rain showers from mostly later Saturday through Sunday, then drier thru midweek… storm threat end of week?

Saturday sees mainly cloudy skies in the morning with a passing shower, then a more concentrated area of rain moving in during the afternoon hours ahead of another warm front associated with the next system. We’ll see periods of rain continue through the night into at least Sunday morning, and then tapering off to showers during the afternoon. Sunday’s activity is ahead of a cold front, which will cross the area Sunday evening.

We get a chance to dry out next week with partly cloudy conditions on Monday, mostly sunny on Tuesday with high pressure over top of us, and still partly cloudy on Wednesday while remaining on the mild side. Thursday will see another system approach from the west, and increasing clouds with PM showers likely. This system will have to be closely watched, as a few models are recognizing a North Atlantic blocking pattern that could allow high pressure over New England to infuse cold air into this system Thursday night and/or Friday, and that could lead to rain changing to snow. For now, approached with moderate confidence with no emphasis on any particular precipitation type until models sort out the specific details. The next update on Monday hopefully provides a better sense of that, so continue to follow us for possible changes next week.
