A widespread killing freeze is likely overnight with many areas spending a few hours in the 20’s around dawn Saturday. After a frosty cold and clear start, Saturday will be filled with sunshine with highs around 50-55. Temps running below normal, but light winds in the sunshine will make for a very nice afternoon.
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.
Clouds will be in place through about 10 or 11 AM…before a sharp clearing line will be working towards the coast by lunchtime. Temps have been cooling behind the front this morning into the 50’s and Lwr 60’s. Once the sunshine comes out in full this afternoon, temps will give another run towards 70-72 degrees, but will start to fall later in the day with the lowering sun angles and breezy NW winds pushing in the much cooler air from Canada which will settle in tonight.
Temperatures will be quickly climbing into the 80’s by midday and lwr 90’s inland this afternoon. The hot spot today will be SNH and the Merrimack Valley where highs will be around 92-94 degrees this afternoon
Friday’s clouds and seabreeze at the coast kept much of eastern MA in the upper 80’s to near 90, but will help prevent that official heat wave for many areas. Yet still, there are places […]
What a day this is going to be. After a week of incredible weather, this one could end up being on of the best. Sunshine with some increasing high clouds in the afternoon with southerly winds gusting to 20+ in the afternoon. Highs will be running well above normal again with highs climbing to near 80 degrees in SNH, the Merrimack Valley and Northern Worcester county. The rest of us will see highs in the mid-upper 70’s with a slight sea breeze developing right at the coast this afternoon which will keep it cooler on the south shore beaches and the Cape in the 60’s. Fantastic Friday! Is there anything better?
The batches of snow showers are very spotty and light so this will keep accumulations down. As the low tracks through tonight is should keep the heaviest snow across SVT, SNH and N. MA. Though snow will start off light, heavier bands may try to develop overnight into the early morning Saturday
This storm will truly be a daytime event, on average from 6-to-8 a.m to 4-to-6 p.m. Saturday.
Yes, SNOW has become a rare commodity this winter season. It’s that rare commodity that is heading our way on Saturday.
Until then, the sun will be shining and working hard to warm our high temperatures up to 50F! It’s going to be a gorgeous February day!
Amounts are very tough to forecast this early, but it is likely that southeastern Massachusetts would be in line for the greatest snow accumulation, which could be in the 3-to-6 inch range.
