805 AM EST Wed Feb 21 2018

A persistent southwest flow will bring unseasonably mild
temperatures and record breaking warmth to much of Southern New
England today with afternoon highs topping out in the upper 60s to
low 70s. 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, while lows Friday night range in the 30s.

Saturday promises to be mainly dry with milder temperatures as high
pressure builds briefly over Northern New England, afterwhich wet
weather returns for Saturday night into Sunday. Rain is likely
however there is the possibility of mixed precipitation along and
north of the Mass Pike.

Dry high pressure looks to follow for early next week with
temperatures slightly above seasonal normals.
