Slow improvement

Soggy start Saturday

WEEKEND IN VIEW

Wow! Up to 11″ was measured in the higher snow bands in the elevations of central MA, the Berkshires, Vermont, and New Hampshire. Meanwhile, the coast did get a spotty and slushy coating, but mostly cold rain fell... and we needed it!

Low pressure will be slow to pull away Saturday. That will keep a thick layer of clouds intact across southern New England. Eastern MA will see ongoing drizzle or spotty showers through the morning, but expect some brighter skies to develop and some breaks of sun. It will be chilly, though. Expect highs in the upper 40s at the coast and low 50s inland.

Sunday will be the pick of the weekend, though it won’t be as nice as some recent days. Seasonable mid and upper 50s will return. There will still be a fair amount of clouds. I can’t rule out a spot shower or sprinkle in the afternoon, but it won’t affect many communities. Expect that same weather Monday, though a bit milder. Sunshine and 60s return Tuesday.

Have a great weekend!
