Good morning everybody! Parts of northern New England are waking up to a wintry scene this morning as areas of light snow fell overnight. It’s mild enough for raindrops in southern New England though and scattered showers will linger at times through the afternoon and evening… so I’d have the umbrella on standby today for outdoor plans. Highs won’t be as cool as yesterday; in fact, we’ll come up to seasonable levels (mid 50s) later on. What you will notice is the wind – which will shift to the west and gust up to 40 mph by this evening and overnight.
That will make for a chilly start to our Monday morning, so if you have any early Veterans Day plans, make sure to be bundled up. The wind will diminish a bit during the afternoon and blow from the southwest out ahead of the next cold front. Temperatures will rise from the 30s to low 40s by late morning under sunny skies, topping out in the low 50s with increasing clouds through the day. Scattered rain showers will accompany this boundary as it swings through Monday night into early Tuesday and with enough cold air rushing in, some wet snowflakes may mix in Tuesday morning! Highs will struggle to get out of the low 40s. Despite plenty of sunshine on Wednesday, our highs may not even reach 40…so be prepared for a winter chill in the air.
The good news is that a large dome of high pressure will build into the eastern seaboard through the end of next week, meaning bright skies, moderating temperatures and quiet weather. Barry Burbank will be with you tonight with his latest forecast thoughts.
Veterans and all who have served: a heartfelt thank you. It was a beautiful site at the Bourne National Cemetery where volunteers placed flags yesterday.
