A coldfront is working through New England tonight, we may see another shower or two with the passage but late tonight the air will dry out as winds pick up out of the NW. Tomorrow will be a brighter day but it will also be tainted by a gusty NW wind making daytime highs in the 40s feel more like 30s. High pressure will crest over us on Thursday for a much calmer and sunnier day.
High pressure will pass off to the east by Friday morning as our next storm sweeps in from the west. Like the several before it, this one too will pass to our west and north leading to a surge of warmth and moisture up the Eastern Seaboard. Gusty SE winds will shoot temps up close to 50 while a strong coldfront comes plowing through lifting air and moisture up creating heavy downpours and maybe even a few rumbles of thunder. Rain amounts during the day could top one inch again…another solid soaking.
Following the rain and the passage of the front, temps will take a tumble to below normal levels…over the weekend highs will be in the 30s. With the core of the cold swirling above us creating an unstable airmass, clouds, snow showers and flurries will be extensive. While most of the snow shower activity will occur over the mountains, a few will stray and will likely even pass through Boston and the rest of Eastern MA on Saturday…that’s about as close as we are going to get to a white Christmas around here.
