Wet weather with some winter mix possible going into the weekend

Wet weather with some winter mix possible going into the weekend

Thursday: Cloudy, milder. Highs 45-50. Day, will be partly sunny with a daytime high near 23 degrees and a nighttime low of about 18 degrees. The snow will taper to snow showers Saturday evening. Rivers and streams could see sudden rises in vicinity of these ice jams.

Emergency management officials said they were dealing with flooding in parts of Malone starting Friday morning. That rain might turn to sleet between 1 and 4 a.m. Saturday, although little or no icy accumulation is expected.

The first wave could produce an inch or so of rain. Travel could become risky, including the evening commute on Friday. Notice the colder air behind it - that's arriving Saturday. Total daytime accumulation will be less than an inch.

Areas of dense fog will develop Thursday night with drizzle developing. A storm will move out of the Deep South today and it will pass through Southern New England by tomorrow morning.

A dry, breezy, and cold stretch follows for Saturday Night into Monday. In these situations, there can always be precipitation falling that end up freezing and causing slick driving. Any standing water (and there will be a lot of it) will freeze up quickly. Temperatures could drop below freezing from west to east during the day on Friday and be in the teens by early Saturday morning. From basements flooding in Revere to Boston's waterfront disappearing under a tidal surge, a forecast of heavy rain on top of the piles of snow is not a welcome one.

Sunday: Dry and colder. The air next week has some arctic influence, but won't bring the bitter cold we had last week. Temperatures will be around seasonal normal averages with morning lows cold, but not almost as cold as what we saw last week.
