Chilly Times Ahead

Spring starts in six days. But winter cold is in control. Temperatures will climb into the low 40s on Friday with a mix of sun and clouds. A passing flurry or snow shower is possible as a weak cold front approaches. This front will end up stalling south of Connecticut, acting like a magnet for incoming storms. One storm on Saturday will follow the front, staying well south of Connecticut. A brief flurry or snow shower is possible but most towns stay dry with high temperatures near 40 degrees.

Sun returns on Saint Patrick’s Day (luck of the Irish). High temperatures will climb into the low 40s. Below average. Again.
Monday night into Tuesday still looks stormy with snow to start (some could accumulate) before changing to heavy rain (and a lot of it). Tuesday morning’s commute could be tricky with snowy/slippery roads before the changeover to rain. Rain will likely wash away any accumulations. But this storm is still 5 days away so we’ll need to keep an eye on it for possible changes. A colder temperature profile could mean another big snow event.
