West Midlands Weather: Rain will clear

You'll be able to have radar, hour by hour forecast, and instant updates from the First Alert Weather Team.

The storm is looking slow - both in its Tuesday-Wednesday arrival and its northward move up the coast. In fact, large hail may be the primary threat.

The warm weather continues into the weekend with only a few showers to dodge the morning of St. Patrick's Day.

Starting Saturday evening, the rain will change to a rain snow mix then to all snow by late Saturday night and early Sunday morning.

Hernandez said a weather system moving into the area Saturday afternoon brings the weekend's first threat of storms. Remember - our average high temperature for this time of the year is just 56°.

So don't count on a big warm-up next week. Until then, Orange County highs will remain in the low to mid 60s. West southwest wind 3 to 6 miles per hour.

Total snow accumulations of up to one half inch and ice accumulations of up to one-tenth of an inch are expected.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 47. West wind around 5 miles per hour.

It's not yet clear what the storm's path will be, so it's hard to say whether it will hit MA, said Eleanor Vallier-Talbot, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Taunton. Southwest wind 3 to 6 miles per hour.

Sunday: Sunny, with a high near 46. Winds E/SE 15-30 miles per hour.

Rain and a low in the mid- to upper 30s are likely Sunday night, forecasters said. Highs Monday will be in the low 70s. Cloudy, with a low around 38. Mostly sunny, with a high near 72.

Sunday: A 20 percent chance of showers.

Tuesday: A chance of rain and snow. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 54. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

There's absolutely no chance for rain (or snow) - so enjoy the gorgeous weather and let those Irish eyes smile!

Monday night, the low will be around 36 with mostly cloudy skies, according to the weather service. A 50 percent chance of showers.

Thursday: A chance of snow showers.
