FORECAST GRAPHICS UPDATED: February 14, 2017
Milder weather arrives by the weekend
Clouds will increase this evening as a weak area of low pressure approaches from the west. The upper level pattern doesn’t favor this system to strengthen until it moves off the eastern New England coast. Precipitation will be limited to a few isolated rain or snow showers that develop along an associated cold front Wednesday afternoon. The intensifying storm in the gulf of Maine will tighten the pressure gradient across the region Thursday causing northwest winds to increase 15-20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. It will be sunny and cold Friday with a high near 35. High pressure with quieter weather will build in through the weekend with daytime highs rising into the 40s.
