Weather: Under the gun


Under the gun

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

Over the next few days, slowly, but inexorably, the ingredients for a major coastal storm will fall into place. By late Friday a weak low over the Midwest will provide energy for a cyclogenesis near the Carolina Capes early on Sunday. Although model predictions at this time vary widely, this storm has a considerable potential of bringing snow over the interior New England and mixed precipitation closer to the coast by later on Sunday and into Monday.

Today: Partly sunny, with some passing clouds early. High 44F (6C) with light westerly winds.

Tonight: Partly cloudy and chilly, lows near freezing in town, in the mid 20s (-4 to -1C) inland. Light northwesterly winds.

Saturday: Some sun early, then becoming cloudy, cool and raw with winds turning onshore. A slight chance of light precipitation developing late in the day. High near 40F (4C)

Sunday outlook: Cloudy, becoming windy, with precipitation developing in the afternoon. High 38F (3C).
