Quieter Weather Incoming; New England's Snowiest Days Ever | Weather Wednesday

This week's Weather Wednesday is focused on a blissfully quiet stretch of weather coming to New England over the course of the next week. We also go over New England's snowiest days on record.

It’s been a bit cloudy as of late, hasn’t it? This has actually been one of the cloudiest January's ever in New England, with Boston seeing the third cloudiest January on record. That’s saying something considering January is among the cloudiest months of the year for New England as it is.

So, when does the sun come back out? Probably this weekend as a trough of low pressure pulls away from New England and high pressure takes over. After a very stormy and unsettled month, New England is looking at a very calm stretch of weather from now through at least midweek next week. There are no signals for any storms as of right now through the next week.

Weather map for Saturday:

The one exception to this quiet week will be a weak disturbance moving to New England’s north bringing scattered snow and rain showers, mainly in northern New England, Thursday into Thursday night. Showers will be most numerous across the northern tier of New England and become more isolated as the line drops southward. A few inches of snow will be possible, mainly in northern Maine.

The weekend has trended a bit warmer for much of New England. This comes as the cold shot will likely be centered to New England’s east with New England on the periphery. This means New England will likely see a cool-down from Thursday and Friday, but likely just back to seasonable levels. Eastern Maine will be the coldest given they will be closer to the cold shot. Sunday and Monday will likely be the coldest of the days.

By next week, a ridge in the center of the country will likely break down with milder air spreading east. How mild remains a question mark. Forecast warm ups a week out for New England haven’t really materialized as of late, so we’ll see just how warm it gets. Right now, we’re thinking above average, but not by too much.
