Monday Forecast

7:35AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 30-DECEMBER 4)…
This last day of November will be colder than any of the first several days of December, as we remain in an overall mild regime despite periods of colder weather at times. The only unsettled weather to speak of during this period will consist of a few very light snow showers off the ocean mainly over southeastern MA this morning and midday as ocean moisture in a light northeast to east wind carries lots of clouds over eastern MA and southeastern NH, less so in RI and interior areas of MA and southern NH, though they will see some cloudiness as well. The other unsettled period will be later Tuesday and Wednesday as a disturbance approaches, its parent low tracking north of southern New England, but a new low forming on its warm front just to the south late Tuesday and moving out to sea while most of the wet weather comes from its slow-moving cold front which will spawn another low pressure wave on Wednesday. Overall, this system will not produce very beneficial rain to help the long-term drought issue. Drier weather returns Thursday and continues Friday as the lows move away and high pressure builds in.
TODAY: Partly sunny to mostly cloudy. Scattered light snow showers mainly southeastern MA into midday. Highs 35-42. Wind NE to E 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy to mostly clear. Lows in the 20s. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY: Increasing clouds. Rain possible in the afternoon near the South Coast. Highs 38-45. Wind light SE.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Lows 35-41. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Highs 45-52 interior MA and southern NH, 50-57 coastal MA and RI. Wind SE to S 10-20 MPH becoming variable to N late in the day.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy and windy. Lows in the 30s. Highs in the 40s.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.

DAYS 6-10 (DECEMBER 5-9)…
Fair and milder December 5-6. Unsettled weather possible at times December 7-9, very likely in the form of rain as it will continue rather mild.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 10-14)…
Mostly dry to start and end the period with some additional wet weather possible mid period. Temperatures generally above normal.

Sunday Forecast

2:52AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 29-DECEMBER 3)…
Small area of high pressure builds in today with fair and cool weather. Weak trough drops southward through the region tonight with a few clouds but turns the wind more onshore overnight into Monday, which will be a colder day with the potential for some ocean cloudiness dominating parts of the area. Cannot rule out some light precipitation if enough moisture is pulled in from the ocean, especially early Monday. Disturbance from the southwest will bring a chance of rain Tuesday night into Wednesday, then intensify as it moves away by Thursday with a shot of windy and chilly weather.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 40-45. Wind NW up to 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 25-30. Wind NW to NE 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Risk of rain or snow showers mainly coast and south of Boston. Highs 35-40. Wind NE 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Increasing clouds. Rain at night. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.
WEDNESDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain and drizzle then rain showers. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 50s.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy and windy. Lows in the 30s. Highs in the 40s.

DAYS 6-10 (DECEMBER 4-8)…
Disturbances in the southern jet stream stay well to the south and a fair and mild regime will be in place here during this period. May just have to watch for one disturbance with brief unsettled weather around December 7.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 9-13)…
Pattern goes into transition with a couple of wet weather events and a continuation of above normal temperatures.

Saturday Forecast

9:33AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 28-DECEMBER 2)…
A slower front means wetter weather this morning and a cloudy sky all day today. Drier air finally makes it in tonight and Sunday. A cool-down is underway now and will continue through Sunday, only to be reinforced for Monday after a secondary front passes through Sunday evening. A low pressure area will move through the region from southwest to northeast late Tuesday and Wednesday with unsettled weather, but precipitation will be rain instead of snow because of mild air returning to the region.
TODAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain morning to midday. Temperatures fall from the 50s into the 40s. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Slow clearing north to south. Lows 25-30 except 30-35 urban centers and coast. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs in the 40s. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 20s. Wind NW 10-20 MPH.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs in the 30s.
TUESDAY: Increasing clouds. Rain at night. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy. Episodes of rain showers. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 50s.

DAYS 6-10 (DECEMBER 3-7)…
Dry weather through the period as any disturbances get pushed well to the south. Temperatures generally above normal.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 8-12)…
Wet weather systems possible around December 9 and at the very end of the period. Temperatures continuing above normal.

Friday Forecast

8:34AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 27-DECEMBER 1)…
No changes from yesterday’s post. A very mild day today. Cold front drops through the region tonight and early Saturday with a few rain showers. Cloudiness lingers Saturday, sun returns Sunday-Monday with a chill to end out November. As December arrives Tuesday, a disturbance will approach and clouds will return.
TODAY: Partly to mostly sunny. Highs 58-65. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
TONIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy. Chance of rain showers. Lows in the 40s. Wind W 10-20 MPH.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy. Temperatures steady in the 40s.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.
TUESDAY: Increasing clouds. Chance of rain at night. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.

DAYS 6-10 (DECEMBER 2-6)…
Low pressure passes through December 2 with wet weather to start then drying out later. Fair December 3-6 as high pressure builds in and keeps another disturbance to the south by December 5-6. Temperatures near to mostly above normal.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 7-11)…
A more active southern jet stream may send another system or two in the direction of New England with a couple more chances of unsettled weather. Temperatures, though variable, will average mostly above normal.

Thanksgiving Forecast

7:25AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 26-30)…
Happy Thanksgiving! This holiday will be on the mild side of average but may lack sun in many areas as low level moisture has increased in a southeast to south air flow behind offshore high pressure. But a fine day for football games and local travel! Even better weather coming up for Friday which will favor those decorating and shopping. A cold front will bring a rain shower risk in the early hours of Saturday which should end fairly quickly, though cloudiness may linger even after the front passes. High pressure will dominate with fair and cool weather Sunday-Monday (no longer looks like a disturbance will make it to the area Monday).
TODAY – THANKSGIVING: Partly sunny to mostly cloudy. Highs 48-55. Wind SE 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly to partly cloudy. Lows 38-45. Wind S 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY: Partly to mostly sunny. Highs 58-65. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy. Chance of rain showers. Lows in the 40s. Wind W 10-20 MPH.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy. Temperatures steady in the 40s.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.

DAYS 6-10 (DECEMBER 1-5)…
Expect a rain threat December 1 and early December 2 from a low passing north of the region. Uncertain whether or not a second system may impact the region with wet weather December 4. Temperatures near to mostly above normal.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 6-10)…
A more active southern jet stream may send another system or two in the direction of New England with a couple more chances of storminess. Temperatures, though variable, will average mostly above normal.

Wednesday Forecast

7:08AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 25-29)…
High pressure remains in control today providing dry and chilly weather, great for travel around the region, which many people will be doing today, be it heading into the area or out of it for Thanksgiving, or doing late minute food shopping, or just about anything else such as picking up the leaves you’ve been ignoring for weeks (my next door neighbors not included because they never pick them up). High pressure slips a little bit to the east and south by Thanksgiving Day and allows a southeasterly flow, which will bring in some Atlantic moisture and result in some cloudiness. As the wind switches more to the southwest by Friday, expect more sun again, but this time a much milder day, basically about as nice as it can be around here in late November, and on a day when many will be out shopping or putting up decorations (I’ll be doing the latter). This slice of mild air won’t last long as a cold front will drop through the region from northwest to southeast Friday night and early Saturday, possibly bringing brief rain showers but definitely bringing colder air for Saturday and Sunday.
TODAY: Sunny. Highs in the 40s. Wind light variable.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear to partly cloudy. Lows in the 30s. Wind light SE.
THURSDAY – THANKSGIVING: Partly sunny to mostly cloudy. Highs 48-55. Wind SE 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Mostly to partly cloudy. Lows 38-45. Wind S 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY: Partly to mostly sunny. Highs 58-65. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy. Chance of rain showers. Lows in the 40s. Wind W 10-20 MPH.
SATURDAY: Partly to mostly sunny. Temperatures steady in the 40s.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.

DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 30-DECEMBER 4)…
There is a little uncertainty on integrity and timing of disturbances that may impact the region during this period. There is a shot of one bringing rain at some point November 30, and another one or 2 systems around December 2 and maybe December 4. Any of these would likely be rain events due to dominant mild air.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 5-9)…
A more active southern jet stream may send another system or two in the direction of New England with a couple more chances of storminess. Temperatures, though variable, will average mostly above normal.

Tuesday Forecast

7:15AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 24-28)…
No big changes in this update. High pressure will tear apart a weak disturbance trying to move into the region from the west today, bringing only some clouds at times, and this high maintain control to provide fair and chilly weather through Wednesday, very favorable for travel around the region heading toward Thanksgiving. The holiday itself on Thursday will be dry but one minor change will be to introduce some cloudiness to the forecast as the wind may be coming from the southeast, bringing in some low level moisture from the Atlantic. The degree of cloud cover is uncertain at this point. Either way, it appears we’ll get into a southwesterly flow by Friday, the big shopping day, with fair and mild weather. A cold front may bring passing rain showers early Saturday before fair, breezy, and colder weather overtakes the region behind a passing cold front.
TODAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 38-45. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 15-20 interior valleys, 20s elsewhere. Wind light variable.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs in the 40s. Wind NW to N 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY – THANKSGIVING: Mostly cloudy. Lows in the 30s. Highs in the 50s.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 60s.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy with scattered rain showers morning. Mostly sunny afternoon. Temperatures falling to the 40s.

DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 29-DECEMBER 3)…
Fair and chilly Sunday November 29. Rain threat Monday November 30 as low pressure approaches. Another disturbance may bring some light precipitation December 1 and/or 2. Fair weather December 3.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 4-8)…
Fair to start. A possible rain/snow threat mid period. Fair late period. Temperatures near to above normal.

Monday Forecast

7:01AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 23-27)…
Thanksgiving Week is here! And it appears we are in for some great weather with one minor interruption. Here’s how it should pan out. We start with 3 chilly and dry days as high pressure dominates. A very weak disturbance running into the high pressure area and falling apart may produce some clouds for part of Tuesday and perhaps a sprinkle of rain or a few flakes of snow. To say the pre-Thanksgiving travel weather will be excellent is almost an understatement. It’s not often we get through 3 days without at least some type of weather issue to impact travel one way or another, but this will be the case this year. And it doesn’t stop there. The great weather will also continue through the Thanksgiving holiday itself as well as the loved-by-some, loathed-by-others “Black Friday” shopping day. During those days we will see a warm-up as high pressure slides off to the south of New England.
TODAY: Any early clouds depart Cape Cod otherwise sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind NW 10-20 MPH.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 16-22 interior valleys, 23-30 elsewhere except lower 30s Cape Cod. Wind light NW.
TUESDAY: Partly cloudy. Isolated very light rain or snow showers possible. Highs 38-45. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.
THURSDAY – THANKSGIVING: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 50s.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 60s.

DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 28-DECEMBER 2)…
Based on current timing, it looks like a cold front will slide from northwest to southeast through the region Saturday November 28 bringing clouds and a risk of rain showers followed by clearing as temperatures start out mild and end colder. Fair and chilly Sunday November 29. Rain threat Monday November 30 as low pressure approaches. Another disturbance may bring some light precipitation December 1 and/or 2.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 3-7)…
Fair weather early to mid period. A possible rain or snow threat later in the period. Temperatures averaging near to above normal for this period.

Sunday Forecast

8:18AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 22-26)…
One change to the forecast and it’s in the short-term, and that is to bring the low pressure wave along today’s passing cold front close enough by early tonight to bring some steady rain to much of the region for several hours, and cannot even rule out an end as a mix with snow as it pulls eastward in the pre-dawn hours as the colder air arrives. Still confident that high pressure will be dominant from Monday through Thanksgiving on Thursday with a November chill finally giving way to a milder very end of the period. Pre-Thanksgiving travel weather will be excellent in the Northeast.
TODAY: Overcast. Isolated rain showers this morning. Steadier rain developing from south to north late day. Highs in the 40s. Wind light SE becoming variable then W up to 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Overcast with rain likely, ending west to east late possibly as a mix of rain/snow. Clearing west to east toward dawn. Lows in the 30s, coldest interior MA and NH. Wind NW to N 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Sunny. Highs in the 40s. Wind N 10-20 MPH.
TUESDAY: Sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.
WEDNESDAY: Sunny. Lows 15-25. Highs in the 40s.
THURSDAY- THANKSGIVING: Sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs 45-55.

DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 27-DECEMBER 1)…
Fair and mild weather November 27-29. Mild with a chance of rain November 30. Fair and cooler December 1.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 2-6)…
Quiet and mild early through mid period. Watch for storminess late in the period.

Saturday Forecast

7:52AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 21-25)…
A warm front approaches today and tonight, passing early Sunday. A cold front approaches later Sunday and moves eastward offshore by late Sunday night. A wave of low pressure will form on this front but remain far enough offshore to spare the region any storminess other than possibly grazing Cape Cod with some rain late Sunday and early Monday. High pressure returns to control with fair and chilly weather for the balance of Monday through Wednesday. Pre-Thanksgiving travel weather will be excellent.
TODAY: Sunshine dimmed at times by variable high cloudiness. Highs 45-52. Wind light E.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy evening. Cloudy overnight. Spotty very light rain possible before dawn. Lows 38-45. Wind light E to SE.
SUNDAY: Mainly cloudy. Spotty very light rain possible through mid morning. Isolated rain showers afternoon. Highs 48-55 occurring late in the day. Wind light SE to S early shifting to W up to 10 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mainly cloudy. A period of rain possible outer Cape Cod. Lows in the 30s except lower 40s Cape Cod. Wind W shifting to N 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Clouds depart Cape Cod early otherwise sunny. Highs in the 40s. Wind N 10-20 MPH and gusty.
TUESDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows 15-25. Highs 45-55.

DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 26-30)…
Thanksgiving Thursday November 26 looks dry with a chilly start and a mild afternoon. A cold will approach from the northwest but likely remain far enough away from the region to allow fair and mild weather Black Friday November 27 and into if not through most of Thanksgiving Weekend November 28-29. Look for the front to finally be over the region with a possible wave of low pressure producing wet weather for November 30.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 1-5)…
December starts fairly quiet with mild and dry weather dominant.
