Disturbances continue to roll through the region
Wednesday will be mainly dry for most of the day. Showers advance into the southern three- quarters of the state in the afternoon. Interior areas may see a few flakes Wednesday night. Important to note here that behind this system, cooler air precedes the precipitation and may cause a few slick spots away from the coast Thursday morning.
Clouds will be the dominant feature for most of the region Thursday as the remaining showers taper off.
A few glimpses of sun for northern and eastern areas are possible Friday morning, but all areas of the state are likely to be damp by Friday afternoon into the evening.
Showers continue Friday night, then taper from west to east towards daylight Saturday. Any showers early Saturday appear to end early in the day, and sun will try to make an appearance from time to time over southern, eastern and western areas.
Sunday appears now to be the pick of the weekend, but another disturbance passing through southern New England may clip southwestern areas with a shower late in the day.
Regional outlook through Sunday
While the weekend rise in temperatures may want to encourage planting and gardening, I'd hold off for another week, if possible. Temperatures appear to cool back down next week. It may be the following weekend before the pattern shifts to more seasonable mercury levels.
