A crazy week of weather is in the forecast for the new week (Feb. 6-12) ahead. Rain, wind, snow, record-heat, and freezing temperatures are all in the projection for this week.

Monday, Feb. 6:  On Monday, the weather will be boring, but beautiful, to kick off the first full week of February. Expect sunny skies, pretty light winds, and seasonable temperatures rising up from the upper 20s to the upper 30s for the day.

Tuesday, Feb. 7:  Then beginning Tuesday, a big storm will move in. It’s going to be a rainy, wet day. It will also be on the chilly side with high temperatures only in the upper 30s, so it will be a cold rain. There may perhaps be some light freezing rain or sleet at times, but I think the main threat for any wintry weather will be further north in Connecticut.

Wednesday, Feb. 8:  Temperatures will rise significantly overnight thanks to a warm front. The southerly winds will be cranking into town as we get into Wednesday. Because of those strong, southerly winds, temperatures will get to the over-20-degrees-above-average territory, and we may even break the record high of 57 degrees set back in 1965. I’m currently forecasting a high of 60 degrees! Get out the short-sleeve shirts, although there may still be a few rain showers clearing out in the morning. It will also be windy with gusts likely to reach 40 mph. Earlier last week, the weather models were more aggressive on the wind threat with this storm, but they have since backed off on the 60 mph wind gusts threat.

Thursday, Feb. 9:  On Thursday, temperatures will be crashing down to below freezing as the big storm clears the Northeast. That will definitely be a slap in the face because we’ll go from 60 degrees on Wednesday to then only 30 degrees this Thursday. Also for Thursday, I am tracking the potential for another storm. This time it will be a nor’easter or coastal storm. There is very low confidence on this storm, however, because the models have just introduced this risk for another storm. As of now, I’m forecasting for it to be a snowy day with snow falling at least during the morning. The European model, which I think is more accurate, is predicting 1-3 inches of snowfall, whereas the American model is more bullish with 5-8 inches of snow forecast. Again, this snow is not guaranteed and is not likely at this moment, but you know I’ll be tracking it for you all this week.

Friday, Feb. 10:  I don’t think we’ll be dealing with any major weather extremes by the end of the week on Friday. The only notable weather for Friday will be the sunshine due to a substantial area of high pressure moving overhead. High pressure indicates sinking air, which prohibits the formation of clouds. That high pressure will also keep the chilly air in place.

Saturday, Feb. 11:  Now for the weekend:  on Saturday, it should be pretty nice featuring periods of sun and clouds and warmer temperatures getting into the 40s.

Sunday, Feb. 12:  Then on Sunday, it will be a cloudy and mild day ahead of the next storm system. Depending on the timing of that storm, some showers can’t be ruled out late in the day, otherwise it will be comfortable and dry.
