Expect Snow This Weekend, But Not A Major StormSome precipitation will likely be falling in parts of New England for almost the entire weekend, but in the end, it probably won’t add up to a whole lot.
Cold Air Holds Tough for Wintry Mix SundayBright sunshine for Saturday with light NNE winds with highs climbing into the mid-upper 30's.
Quick Changes of Weather 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.
Let The Warm Up Begin!
Mild Start to December, Can It Last?A snowy, wintry start to the day with a widespread coating of snow. Temperatures will rise slowly today as highs slowly creep into the middle and then upper 30's be evening, turning any leftover snow showers to rain or drizzle for many.
Stellar November Weather
Serious About Hurricane SandyHistorically, 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.
Wet Friday Leads to A Dry Pleasant WeekendSteady Showers are being directed up the CT river valley for the morning hours with lighter showers across eastern MA. By afternoon, the steady showers in the west will begin to shift eastward for the afternoon and evening.
Cold Start, Mild Finish This WeekendA 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.
Cloudy With Plenty of Dry This WeekendWith this morning's low lifting north and east of the region, we will dry out as mentioned with North winds wrapping in around the departing low. However thanks to abundant cloud cover temperatures will struggle to reach 60 degrees in most locations with the "Hot Spot" being far southeastern MA where proximity to a warm front will allow temperatures to reach a balmy 65-67 degrees.
Squeeze Play Friday...Fine Autumn WeekendWith 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.
Storms To Break The HumiditySome may be stuck in the clouds for much of the day. On the Cape there is sunshine! A gorgeous morning. I do expect a gradual thinning and lifting to the clouds for partial sun to emerge by the late morning into the early afternoon. I think we are looking at a decent beach day for sky conditions, once the clouds burn off, but wind and waves may be another issue. Any emerging sun will help to fuel the development of afternoon storms.
Tracking Waves On A Stalled Front...50/50 WeekendMorning showers are shifting to the coast this morning. Showers are extending from the North Shore into CT along a stalling front which has pushed just south of Boston and will become hung up across SE MA during the afternoon. Severe weather is not likely in this unseasonably cool airmass, with cloudy damp conditions & light variable winds. Morning showers will begin to wind down during the late morning into the midday with still plenty of cloud through the lunch hour.
Tropical Humidity Triggers Scattered Showers/Storms This Weekendit's a muggy morning across the region with abundant cloud cover with breaks of hazy sunshine. We can expect a warm humid Saturday with mostly dry conditions for most in the morning. By the afternoon, the atmosphere will begin to pop again with scattered showers and thunderstorms.
