National Weather Service outlook through Thursday:

Changeable weather is on the way the next few days!

Winter weather advisories are in effect for much of western and central portions of southern New England for a mix of wintry weather. Light snow will develop late tonight and accumulate up to 1 to 3 inches north of the Mass Pike - only a coating elsewhere. Then there will be a changeover to sleet, freezing rain, and plain rain. The transition to rain will be quick south and east of a line from Boston to Hartford. However, it may remain freezing rain throughout the day in northwest MA's higher terrain, where up to 1/4" to 1/2" of ice may accrete. An isolated power outage is possible in the highest terrain of NW MA.

On Wednesday, temperatures will soar into the 50s! Enjoy it because it will be very short-lived.

On Thursday, cold air will be back in place and low pressure may form on a front to our south. If it is close enough, we could receive significant amounts of snow in southeast MA and RI. If it is far to the south, only an inch or two could fall in extreme southeast sections. At this time, confidence is low for storm track and amounts. What we do know is that southeastern sections have the highest chance of getting measurable snow. Stay tuned for later updates. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
