DAILY RIVER AND LAKE SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TAUNTON MA
1204 PM EST Wed Feb 21 2018

A persistent southwest flow will bring unseasonably mild temperatures
and record breaking warmth into the upper 60s to lower 70s across much
of Southern New England today. The exception is the south coast, Cape
Cod and the islands where low clouds and fog will cap high
temperatures in the 50s.

A cold frontal passage late tonight will bring the chance for rain,
along with colder temperatures. Lows tonight will drop down into the
30s. Across northwest Massachusetts, pockets of freezing rain are
possible as temperatures fall into the low 30s.

On Thursday, high pressure will build over Northern New England and
as it does so touches of snow and sleet are likely. Highs on
Thursday will only reach into the mid 30s to low 40s.

The high will shift east toward Nova Scotia on Friday and on its
heels will be a storm system approaching our region from the
southwest. This system will bring the chance for rain around mid day
Friday with perhaps freezing rain at the onset across the western
interior. Highs on Friday will be seasonable and top out in the mid
30s to low 40s.

Any rainfall over the next 2 days will be light and under 0.50
inches. Area main stem river levels will remain nearly stationary or
recede slightly over the next 24 to 48 hours. The exception is the
lower Connecticut River which will show rises over the next 2 days
due to snowmelt upstream over Northern New England. These rises are
forecast to remain below action stage and flood stage.


These forecasts include 24 hour precipitation for the period ending
at 7 am today, and forecast precipitation through 7 am tomorrow.
