Hi everyone! Clouds this morning will part for increasing sunshine this afternoon as a ridge of high pressure builds into the region. Expect above normal temperatures to continue with highs generally 55 to 60 today…a pretty pleasant afternoon by November standards!  As the high slips off the coastline tonight, clouds will return and stick around for our Sunday. Despite that, temperatures will once again rise to near 60.  There will be a few stray showers tomorrow, especially by evening…but much of the day will be spent dry.

All bets are off by Monday though! An approaching cold front will bring windswept rain coinciding with the morning rush…so plan accordingly. There may even be an embedded rumble of thunder or two as the heart of the energy swings overhead.

With much of eastern MA in a moderate drought, we could certainly use the wet weather, but rainfall totals will generally be around 0.25” or so.  The disturbance is progressive, so by midday we should be tapering to showers followed by some clearing from west to east late in the day.

Much colder air will move in behind the boundary though…so after topping out in the low to mid 60s Monday, our highs will struggle to reach the low 40s on Tuesday. The chill lingers in the air on Wednesday before some gradual moderation takes place by the end of the week.

Barry Burbank will share his thoughts later on tonight…and if you’re out and about at the Ski and Snowboard Expo, be sure to swing by the WBZ Mobile AccuWeather lab to say hi! He’ll be there all afternoon.
