New England Weather This Week: Cold Middle

This week will feature winter-like temperatures in the middle of the week after starting off mild. The region will also end the week on the milder side. New England will remain under the influence of low pressure for much of the week, leading to continued light rain/snow chances in places.


Monday afternoon will see steady, accumulating snow begin to break up from west to east, though scattered snow showers will likely continue across northern New England. Another disturbance will allow for more snow showers to develop across the northern tier by mid-afternoon into the night. These additional snow showers will be light and additional accumulations will be minimal.

Expected weather this afternoon:

Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories will expire generally from west to east starting mid-morning, with eastern Maine seeing alerts expire Monday evening.

For southern New England, it will be dry, but remaining mostly cloudy. Cooling temperatures aloft could help produce a very quick, spot shower, but that's about it. High temperatures Monday will vary quite a bit with temperatures reaching for 50° in parts of southern New England and highs remaining in the mid 20s in parts of northern New England.

Expected temperatures Monday afternoon:

Some snow showers over Maine's coastline may develop overnight Monday to Tuesday morning, along with continued elevation-based snow showers across the higher terrain. Overall, coverage in snow showers will diminish as Monday night goes on. Any new snow accumulations Monday night will be very light.

Expected weather overnight Monday:


The main story for New England in the middle of the week will be colder temperatures. Highs on these days will be in the 20s north and 30s south. Most of New England will struggle to climb above freezing on Wednesday and Thursday with many in northern New England struggling to get out of the 20s. Overnight lows will range from the low 20s in southern New England to the single digits in the higher terrain of northern New England.

New England will remain under cyclonic flow during this time, which will lead to plenty of clouds hanging around. This will also lead to continued light precipitation for some.Scattered ocean effect rain showers will be possible across Cape Cod on Tuesday.

More snow/rain showers will be possible mainly across the south shore, Cape Cod and the islands on Wednesday, although snow showers can't be ruled out for entire Massachusetts and New Hampshire coastlines. A dusting to an inch of snow will be possible Wednesday across southeast Massachusetts as ocean-enhancement is possible.

Expected weather Wednesday morning, showing snow showers across the Mass coastline:

New England will completely dry out by Thursday, but it will remain cold, as discussed above, with partly cloudy skies.


Calm weather continues into Friday and a warm-up begins as flow shifts from the north to more west/southwest. A warm front is also looking to approach New England during this time from an area of low pressure set to track to New England's north. Highs will be in the 30s north and 40s south.

Weather map for Friday:


With low pressure passing to New England's north late this week, there looks to be a lot of clouds for Saturday, but mainly dry. Sunday may see more clouds and shower activity. Another storm system is looking to approach for Sunday evening through Monday once again.

With that warm front approaching, New England will be in the warm sector, leading to a mild weekend with highs generally in the 40s north and 50s south. This does appear to be a mild storm with rain dominating for most of New England, but we'll be watching the trends as the week goes on.
