It’s going to be a game of temperatures going up and down as well as snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain. If you like variety, you’ll be in your glory this week.
Today will be quiet as you head to work and school, but it will be a completely different story as you head home.
A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect from 1 p.m. through 6 a.m. Tuesday.
Bursts of light snow will head into the region anytime after 2 p.m. and will continue as light snow. It will mix in with sleet and freezing rain later this evening into the early overnight. It will make for a slow evening commute.
The wintry mix will gradually taper off after midnight. The majority of the area will receive 1-of-3 inches of snow by Tuesday morning.
It should be mainly dry for Tuesday morning’s commute. Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with milder highs in the 35-to-40 degree range.
Then, another threat of a rain-wintry mix will affect us on Tuesday night. The best chance of a wintry mix will be for areas located at higher elevations and neighborhoods north and west outside of Route 495.
Wednesday will include clouds with peeks of sun which will catapult high temps to near 60.
We will be flirting with record highs in Boston (63 in 1914) and Worcester (53 in 1938).
A strong cold front will be the culprit for heavy periods of rain from Wednesday evening through early Thursday morning.
Then, in its wake, winds will become gusty, and colder air will work its way back into New England. Highs will be in the lower 40′s on Thursday.
A chill will set-in on Friday and continue through the upcoming weekend. Highs will be returning to the 30′s.
