New England Weekend Weather (and beyond): Starts Cold, Ends Wet

This weekend will start off cold, but end more seasonable. The end of the weekend will usher in the region's next storm system.


SATURDAY


A strong cold front that will cross New England on Friday will help set the stage for a cold Saturday across the region. Saturday morning lows will fall to the teens to mid 20s for everyone, with some single digits possible in the higher elevations of northern New England and northern Maine. Afternoon highs will only warm to the 20s north and 30s south. There will be less wind Saturday, so the edge will be taken off the cold temperatures somewhat.


Temperatures early Saturday afternoon:


Outside of the temperatures, high pressure builds into New England, leading to a mostly sunny day across New England. Saturday night will be another rather cold night, though not as cold as Friday night, and calm conditions will prevail.



SUNDAY


High pressure will likely have shifted to New England's south Saturday night. This will create a more southerly flow into New England for Sunday, allowing temperatures to climb a notch or two warmer than Saturday. Highs will be in the mid to upper 40s in southern New England and the mid 30s to mid 40s in northern New England.


The day will start to see clouds increase generally from south to north ahead of New England's next storm system, which will arrive in New England Sunday night. The daylight hours of Sunday will be dry for all of New England. This storm will be a coastal low moving off the mid-Atlantic coast and through the Gulf of Maine (or directly over New England) with a primary low moving to New England's north.




The setup is similar to the Tuesday night-Wednesday storm, although this storm is looking to be overall lower impact. The storm is also looking to be a very quick hitter, with precipitation starting overnight Sunday and winding down from south to north starting Monday afternoon.

Overall, the storm is looking to be warmer than the last, with less snowfall across New England. The storm may start as snow in the higher elevations of northern New England, but mix with, or changeover to rain into Monday morning. The quick-hitting nature of the storm will limit significant rain or snowfall, but a couple inches of snow may fall in the Green and White mountains through northern Maine.


Southern New England, and the lower elevations of northern New England will likely see a wideapread half an inch to possibly up to an inch of rain. Winds are not expected to be much of an issue with this storm.

BEYOND


After the clipper storm, a cold front will be dragged across New England by Monday evening. This front will be the start of a more prolonged chilly stretch that will last through the rest of next week. A trough will remain over the northeast, leading to cooler than average and breezy weather. This cooler weather will likely prevail for the rest of November.



There are no signals for any widespread storm system for the rest of the week, but the region will remain under broad cyclonic flow, so some snow showers will be possible in the higher elevations. Other than that, it should be a dry and pretty bright week with partly cloudy skies dominating.
