Friday Forecast- Back to Winter

Back to winter for New England after an eventful weather week.  You can find wind reports from yesterday here and damage reports here.

They will not moderate too much during the day.  Here are the 1 PM temperatures

The reason for the small jump is a stationary boundary draped through northern New England.  High pressure is in control in the Central US but this boundary is keeping the bitter Arctic cold out.  There will be some gusty winds today but nothing like yesterday.

Also there was a light snow shower last night around 930.  Another snow squall is possible today.  These will pop up at various times during the day.  Here is the 1 PM simulated radar.  Note that the Cape and Islands can see some rain this afternoon.

That mess offshore is low pressure exploding as it moves away.  Finally I'm not seeing great snow chances for Sunday.  Sure we could get an inch but except for coastal SE New England I can't see much more than that.  More on next week's snow threat tomorrow, have a good Friday.
