Today will be a mild December day, but the warmest day will be tomorrow before a cold front ‘knocks’ us back down to reality. So, you have a couple of great days to hang up those Christmas lights or to get your beautiful Christmas tree. If you’re wondering, average high temperatures this first week of December would be in the middle 40s.
Some patchy fog will form away from the coast this morning. Drive slowly and safely. Otherwise, skies will clear out for a sunny day along with mild high temperatures in the 50-55F range (warmest across SE Mass.). We won’t be breaking the records, which are 65F 1932 in Boston and 61F 1932 in Worcester, but it’ll be close enough! :)
Tuesday will be a a couple of degrees warmer than today. There will be a clouds & sun combination with highs in the middle to upper 50s.
Showers will arrive late Tuesday night and stick around through midday Wednesday as a cold front crawls across New England. This will be the transition from the unseasonably warm air to the colder, continental polar air.
Wednesday will reach the high temperature of approximately 50F early in the day before cold air advection knonks those temps down. There will be showers through midday before skies begin to partially clear out.
Thursday will be sunny, but colder with highs hanging in the lower 40s. Then, Friday will be partly cloudy with a little warmer with highs in the upper 40s.
Long-range models (GFSx vs. the EURO) are depicting a different picture for the upcoming weekend. GFSx shows the chance for showers on Saturday with a cloud/sun mix on Sunday. The EURO shows a dry day on Saturday with showers arriving on Sunday. So, I do expect at least a 50/50 weekend in terms of quiet versus unsettled weather. It does appear that the precipitation will be in liquid form…rain.
Welcome back to work and school!
