You may be scraping frost from your car’s windshield and windows since many neighborhood temperatures have plunged into the 20s overnight. Clouds will be increasin today before we introduce a few showers into the forecast this evening.  The core of the day will be dry though. A light southwest breeze will be joined by high temperatures in the middle to upper 40s. It will be warmest across southeastern Massaschusetts.  The coldest highs will be in southern New Hampshire where the mercury will struggle to hang near the 40F mark.

This weekend’s PICK DAY will be Sunday. Here’s how the weekend is going to pan out.  Saturday will be showers through the mid-afternoon hours. A surface high to our north will push the front south during the evening allowing for a lull in the precipitation department.   Highs will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s along with a light southeast breeze.  Sunday will be a mainly dry day with partly cloudy to partly sunny skies.  Sunday’s high temps will be a degree or two cooler than Saturday (mid 40s) with a light onshore wind. Then, there will be a chance of showers again during the evening, although the rain may hold off until Sunday night.  Northwest of 495 may see a few snowflakes on Sunday night before transitioning back to all rain on Monday.

Monday will be a mild and showery day with the warm front positioned to our north.  Highs will be in the middle to upper 50s.

Tuesday is where the models differ.   The GFSx has a remnant early morning shower (mix northwest) giving way to partly cloudy skies.  Here’s a look—

The EURO is showing a more ominous scenario. It is showing a coastal low passing near the benchmark which would bring rain and potentiall some snow northwest of Boston on Tuesday afternoon and evening.

As you already know, we will be watching this track closely. Stay tuned!  All of the models show quiet weather by midweek though.

Happy FRRRiday!
