Thursday will be a little warmer, with highs near 30, but we really won’t break this cold snap until the weekend, when highs will flirt with 50.
We’ll see plenty of bright sunshine as high pressure builds over the Northeast today with temperatures reaching the seasonable 30s by afternoon. A warm front will cross the region tomorrow with a band of light snow ahead of it that could coat the ground by the morning commute. Use caution and drive slow as just a little snow could cause slick travel.
An upper level low will cross the region Friday night into Saturday with deep low pressure tracking to the west of New England, into the Great Lakes and then into Quebec late Saturday night into Sunday. A period of very heavy rain and wind will move through Connecticut Saturday into Saturday night with upwards of an inch or two of rain that could cause localized flooding due to the snow melt, ice jams and very mild temperatures.
High temperatures could reach the mid-50s by Saturday evening before the cold front crosses the region early Sunday. High pressure will build into the region with sunshine and cooler temperatures. Temperatures will still average 10 degrees above normal through early next week with sunshine. Low pressure will begin to track in our direction by late Tuesday into Wednesday with the potential for some snow as colder air returns to the New England.
