David Epstein: This weekend will be great for skiing

The good news this weekend is that our weather will remain more tranquil, allowing for power crews to continue the restoration across the state. Temperatures are not going to be bitterly cold, and there won’t be much wind over the next few days.

Our weather Friday will be influenced by a little bit of upper-level energy in the atmosphere, which could produce some clouds and a few light rain or snow showers.  If you see a snow shower, it’s not impossible that it leaves a coating to a half inch, but, because temperatures will be above freezing, roads will remain wet not white. Most of us won’t even see these, but I did want to mention them in case you do.

Highs Friday will reach near 40 degrees. —WeatherBell

Saturday will be dry, but breezy

Saturday looks like a partly to mostly sunny day with breezy conditions. Temperatures will reach into the lower 40s with more melting. This is the final day of Standard time; you’ll need to remember to set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to bed Saturday night.

Sunday features highs around 40. —WeatherBell

Sunday is the pick of the weekend

Sunday will dawn bright and sunny. There will be less wind than there will be on Saturday, and temperatures will be a few degrees milder, generally in the mid-40s.

Skiing will be fantastic

This is a great weekend to head to any of your favorite ski areas. Anywhere from 10 to 24 inches of snow fell across most areas during the Wednesday night-and-Thursday storm. With temperatures not that cold, conditions will be ideal for some wonderful skiing.

Another nor’easter

You may have heard about a potential for another storm early next week. Right now, it looks like that storm should stay out to sea, but it definitely bears watching because the track could change and impact us.

A large ocean storm will need to be monitored for potential impact to New England next week. —WeatherBell
