Above: Weather Prediction Center's rainfall forecast for Wednesday PM-Thursday. (Click to Enlarge).
Yesterday's high of 5 degrees at BDL was the coldest day in 37 years and a record low maximum for the date. Boston (10 degrees) and Worcester, MA (1 degrees) also broke record low maximums that were set in 1985.
Conditions will moderate today as the core of the arctic air continues to push further east. Highs reach the 20's this afternoon with a lot less wind than yesterday.
Temps continue to moderate Wednesday, breaking 40 in many places.
Next precipitation event brings some showers Wednesday evening/night and heavy rain (1.0"-2.0") Thursday.
It's not out of the question that some surfaces could be cold enough that a little ice forms when precipitation begins Wednesday evening, but probably not a widepread issue.
