    January 29,2013

    The snow has moved on this morning, and in the south about 6 inches accumulated; to the north 2-4 inches. However, it's warm out, warming up (feels like a heat wave, practically), and the forecast has some sleet / freezing rain coming towards us.
    Low clouds. Patchy fog and freezing drizzle to start. Slight chance for showers of freezing rain, or rain during the PM. Highs 30-35. Light, variable wind becoming South 10 mph or less during the PM.

    Tonight: Cloudy, areas of dense fog. Rain showers likely. Lows 32-35 east, and 33-37 west of the Greens. Light south wind.
    Wednesday: Cloudy. Scattered showers. Areas of dense fog through mid-morning over and east of the Greens. Highs 43-50. South wind picking up to 10-15 mph.

    Forecast Discussion:

    LOW pressure that brought a few to several inches of snow to nearly the entire state yesterday is off the Massachusetts coast now and whisking rapidly eastward. Behind it is a good deal of low-level moisture that'll make for mostly cloudy skies today. Thin spots in the clouds may let through some watery sun around midday, but in general it'll be a mild, unsettled 36-48 hours as a couple of packets of energy at mid-levels lift into New England during that period. The first will reactivate a warm front now just to our south, and give us some showers overnight; the second will push the warm front well to our north Wednesday and give us a slug of rain Wednesday evening ahead of a sharp cold front that'll move through later Wednesday night and return us to seasonably cold conditions. There may be a few record highs for the date set tomorrow afternoon or evening in the strong southerly flow along and ahead of the cold front.
