Tranquil, Unseasonably Warm To Close Month

Late week storm likely misses New England

Tonight will be cloudy with scattered showers as temperatures remain in the 30s.

With colder air moving in aloft tomorrow, there will be more clouds than sunshine. In these situations during the winter months, a flurry can sneak into the hill towns.

Still, highs will be near 40 degrees.

Thursday looks like the pick of the rest of the work week. Lots of sunshine is expected, though temperatures will be lower, in the middle and upper 30s.

The average high this time of year is in the middle 30s, and the average low is in the upper teens.

By Friday, an ocean storm will be moving north off the East Coast but it looks like it will remain well out to sea.

Still, snow showers are possible as a clipper system transfers its energy to the storm over the ocean.

In this scenario, it looks like temperatures will be above freezing. So, even if snow flakes are in the air, accumulations are unlikely.

Over the weekend, the upper-level pattern is what meteorologists call "zonal" – or not very exciting.

Lots of clouds can be expected with a stationary boundary nearby, and yet another clipper could bring rain and snow showers. The timing on that clipper appears to be either Saturday or Saturday night.

An early look at the start of February shows above average temperatures. However, early indications for late in the first week and early in the second week of February show the potential for storminess along the East Coast.
