A major storm system will continue to batter the New England coastline tonight into Thursday, but it will not have much in the way of direct effects on our weather. Behind this system, Thursday will be windy and cold with a mix of clouds and sunshine. Flurries and snow showers will erupt, especially during the afternoon and west of I-99.
The snow showers will be more numerous and more intense near and west of Route 219 Thursday night into early Friday where there can be some travel problems. Highs on Thursday will be in the 30s with the wind making it feel colder than that. Friday will still be windy and cold with clouds, some sunshine but also scattered flurries and snow showers. Highs will be in the 30s. Saturday will feature clouds and sunshine with a brisk wind. Highs will be in the 30s to near 40. Another storm system will pass to the south Sunday. This system will develop into yet another major storm to our south and east Sunday into Monday but at this point it looks like we’ll avoid most of the precipitation. As it looks now, Sunday will be dry and then we may have some flurries and snow showers on the backside of the system on Monday. Highs each day will be in the 30s to near 40. Even colder air will start to press into the region on Tuesday with snow showers. Highs will be in the 30s. We’re going to have cold weather to the middle and latter part of the week.
