Thursday 2/7 Forecast Discussion

We saw scattered showers over our Northern areas with moderate to heavy rain in our Southern region this morning, but the rain cleared out by mid-morning and we were all dry and cloudy for most of the day. Since there weren't any breaks in the clouds this afternoon, most of us stayed in the upper 50s and low 60s this afternoon. Rain returns tonight as a cold front drops through the area from the Northwest and brings us scattered showers overnight into mid-morning tomorrow. As soon as the rain clears out, we should see a pretty nice Friday afternoon and Saturday, as highs once again climb into the 60s. The nice weather will come to a very abrupt end as a large storm system currently over the West Coast moves to our North over the Midwest. We'll be on the Southern end of it and we'll see heavy rain beginning Sunday morning, with the chance for some strong to severe storms Sunday afternoon. After that disturbance passes, another disturbance is poised to develop right behind it and send us a series of pulses of energy that will bring a few rounds of heavy rain Monday and Tuesday, possibly lasting into Wednesday. We could pick up 2-4 inches of rain (with some places even seeing more than that) before ll is said and done. If there is any silver lining to this wet forecast, the Northeast is about to get slammed by a potentially record-breaking blizzard. Some models are forecasting 30-40 inches of snow to fall in Boston. Looks like they'll have to measure it in feet instead of inches! We'll keep you updated on the rain and storm chances as we approach the weekend.
