A second wave of precipitation will likely keep roads a bit hazardous piling some ice on top of the fresh snow.
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.
Bright sunshine for Saturday with light NNE winds with highs climbing into the mid-upper 30′s.
Dry high pressure to our north will give us some morning sunshine, but it will be fading behind increasing high -mid level clouds during the day. Highs will climb into the 40′s to near 50 in many areas this afternoon under partly sunny skies. Skies will end up being brighter across the north, with more in the way of clouds streaming through SNE thanks to a batch of showers just off our South coast. Winds will shift to the NE this afternoon then to the SE tonight as clouds will continue to thicken with an approaching warm front.
After midnight towards daybreak I expect the rain to become most steady with the warm front directly over southern New England at the crack of dawn. Morning showers will linger through the late morning along the coast. Showers will be mainly over by afternoon. NNW winds will lock in low clouds and a cool feel especially north and NW of Boston where highs will only be in the 30′s and Lwr 40′s. South of Boston highs will climb into the mid -upper 40′s with the passage of the warm front in the afternoon.
Towards afternoon some high clouds will approach from the west associated with an approaching warm front. Regardless, lots of sun will be found with seasonal high temperatures around 50 degrees.
With breaks of sunshine, temperatures will be cool in the upper 40′s northwest suburbs to lower 50′s southeast Mass, Cape and Islands. An active and blustery wind at 15-25mph from the northwest will add some extra chill to the air making it feel more like the middle 40′s. November is here!
Historically, this storm will rival many of the past storms that have impacted New England. Not only will the track be unique, but also the intensity will be one for the record books…with minimum pressures falling to levels comparable to some of our greatest hurricanes! Just Incredible.
High pressure is parked off the coast today providing abundant sunshine, sparkling blue skies and a very pleasant fall feel. Light winds from the SE will keep it slightly cooler at the coast this afternoon as most areas will climb to 60-65. A beautiful seasonal airmass for this time of year.
With a weak ridge of high pressure still in place, just enough sinking air remains in place so by the afternoon, this deck of clouds will begin to thin inland giving way to increasing sunshine inland where high temps could climb into the Lwr 70′s…especially in western New England who will see the most sun. Clouds will hold longer on the coast, but eventually the sun will emerge this afternoon. Light east winds will keep it cooler at the coast again in the Lwr-mid 60′s. Cape Cod and the Islands will have a mostly cloudy day with the risk of being clipped with some light showers from the midday through afternoon.
