After a beautiful sunny weekend, we are following a fast moving storm that will bring a round of rain and snow today.
Some may start out as snow, but the lows are warming up quickly and we’ll switch to rain as the afternoon progresses.
There could still be enough cold to produce mild accumulations from Worcester to southern New Hampshire. The storm will disappear tonight as temperatures slowly approach freezing.
A fast-moving low-pressure area is expected to head into western Connecticut today, bringing in smoother air. A flurry of snow is likely Monday afternoon with a quick change to rain south of Hartford. There will be mostly rain along the coast.
From then on, it becomes springtime in the middle of the week. However, we are not making any promises about the sun. Clouds of a weak disturbance will plague Tuesday’s forecast, and on Wednesday we will see another strong front approaching. This will change the mild period and send us into the cold to end the week.
Winter is not over, but the countdown to the meteorological spring is underway. Next Monday, March 1 is the big day.
