Wednesday Forecast

9:02AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 30-DECEMBER 4)
On this final day of November we get one more wave of low pressure approaching and the next round of rain will arrive from southwest to northeast this afternoon and continue tonight, with a few rounds of heavy rain for some areas. As December gets underway it all gets out of here and we have a mild but windy day Thursday, followed by dry weather and a cooling trend Friday through the weekend.
TODAY: Cloudy. Areas of fog this morning. Rain developing southwest to northeast this afternoon. Highs 48-56. Wind light E.
TONIGHT: Cloudy. Rain, heavy at times. Slight chance of thunder. Lows 42-48. Wind E 5-15 MPH shifting to N.
THURSDAY: Cloudy start Cape Cod. Otherwise, sun and passing clouds. Highs 52-60. Wind W 15-25 MPH with higher gusts.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows 32-39. Highs 47-54.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows 25-33. Highs 43-50.
SUNDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows 22-30. Highs 38-45.

DAYS 6-10 (DECEMBER 5-9)
Risk of snow showers early December 5 then fair and cool. Watching 1 or 2 waves of low pressure that may bring some unsettled weather around December 7 and/or 9. Not quite sure of the evolution of this yet. Odds favor rain as it warms up somewhat.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 10-14)
Overall pattern remains mild. Another Pacific system threatens mainly rain by later in the period.

Tuesday Forecast

8:48AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 29-DECEMBER 3)
Two low pressure waves will bring periods of rain today and Wednesday, with the main surges in the afternoons and evenings of both days. We may start off today with brief freezing rain in some of the valley areas of north central MA and southern NH as an initial batch of light rain moves through there while the air is still below freezing near the ground, so watch for brief icing in a few locations until late morning. The remainder of the rain from these systems will occur with temperatures above the icing threshold. As the final low pulls away and intensifies in eastern Canada, a gusty westerly wind will overtake the region Thursday and Friday, though it will take a while for the colder air to arrive, so Thursday will be quite mild, and Friday only somewhat cooler. High pressure will move closer and drive a little colder air down from Canada between it and the old low pressure area Saturday, which should be a very nice but chilly early December day.
TODAY: Overcast. A period of light rain north central MA into southern NH this morning may freeze on a few surfaces until about 10AM. More widespread rain developing regionwide this afternoon with pockets of heavier rain possible. Highs 42-49 Boston west and north, 50-58 to the southeast. Wind S to SW 5-15 MPH with higher gusts, especially late in the day.
TONIGHT: Cloudy. Rain tapers off. Patchy fog. Lows 40-48. Wind SW 5-15 MPH and gusty early, then becoming light variable.
WEDNESDAY: Cloudy. Rain mainly in the afternoon. Highs 45-52, Wind variable to E 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy and windy. Lows 38-45. Highs 45-52 northwest, 52-60 southeast.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy and windy. Lows 30-38. Highs 44-52.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows 25-33. Highs 38-45.

DAYS 6-10 (DECEMBER 4-8)
Weak disturbance may bring a few mix/snow showers late December 4 to early December 5 and a brief surge of colder air behind it. Watching for a possible storm system around the middle of the period but timing uncertain, though odds would favor rain over snow as temperatures moderate.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 9-13)
Active Pacific jet stream will send another system toward the region by late in the period after a fair start. Temperatures near to above above normal.

Monday Forecast

9:29AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 28-DECEMBER 2)
High pressure brings fair weather today. A series of low pressure areas will bring periods of rain Tuesday and Wednesday. Thinking the timing of things is fast enough so we’re getting into a drier, windy, cooler regime later in the week as December gets underway.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 42-49. Wind W up to 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 25-32 interior, 32-37 elsewhere. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Highs 42-49. Wind SE to S 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Cloudy. Rain mainly in the afternoon. Lows 38-45. Highs 45-55, warmest southeastern areas.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy and windy. Lows 38-45. Highs 45-52 northwest, 52-60 southeast.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy and windy. Lows 30-38. Highs 38-45.

DAYS 6-10 (DECEMBER 3-7)
Mainly dry December 3-5 though may have to watch for a weak disturbance with a few snow showers sometime later December 4 or early December 5. Next storm threat comes late in the period but odds favor a Great Lakes track with rain more likely here. This entire period has a higher than average degree of uncertainly regarding timing and strength of systems. Temperatures near to slightly below normal to start the period then moderating.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 8-12)
Pacific jet stream should send 1 or 2 low pressure areas into this area with precipitation threats more likely to be rain than mix/snow. Temperatures near to above above normal.

Sunday Forecast

2:14AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 27-DECEMBER 1)
Improved weather for this final day of the long Thanksgiving Weekend as we see sunshine, a seasonable chill, and a gusty breeze as low pressure offshore moves away and high pressure approaches. This high will move across the region tonight and Monday with tranquil weather. Our pattern is being dominated by a fairly active Pacific jet stream, however, and the next low pressure system will move in rapidly on Tuesday with another round of wet weather. We may get a break of sorts on Wednesday between systems, but a second low will track northwest of the region Thursday and though some of the region may miss out on the warmest of the air, areas to the south and east may get quite mild briefly Wednesday night or early Thursday before a front sweeps through from the west. But before any cold air can get in, the precipitation, which will fall as rain, will be gone.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 42-49. Wind NW 5-15 MPH gusting 20-25 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 22-27 interior valleys, 28-33 elsewhere. Wind light NW to W.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 42-49. Wind W up to 10 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 25-32 interior, 32-37 elsewhere. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Highs 42-49. Wind SE to S 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy. Risk of rain showers during the day. Rain showers likely at night. Temperatures generally steady 42-49 but may rise into the 50s southeastern areas later at night.
THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy with rain showers likely but should end with breaking clouds later. Temperatures 40s northwest, 50s southeast early, falling later.

DAYS 6-10 (DECEMBER 2-6)
Colder December 2-4 with a few snow showers especially December 2-3. Fair with moderating temperatures later in the period.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 7-11)
Pacific jet stream should send 1 or 2 low pressure areas into this area with precipitation threats more likely to be rain than mix/snow. Temperatures generally above normal.

Saturday Forecast

11:30AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 26-30)
A trough over the region will transfer its energy to an offshore low today and Sunday. The unsettled weather today will shift offshore Sunday. Monday looks fair as high pressure dominates, but more unsettled weather will be quick to follow that on Tuesday and Wednesday.
TODAY: Mainly cloudy – few breaks of sun possible. Areas of fog dissipate. A couple periods of light rain possible. Highs 42-50. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows 30-38. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 40-48. Wind NW 10-20 MPH.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows 24-32. Highs 44-52.
TUESDAY: Clouding up. PM rain. Lows 30-38. Highs 47-55.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy. Chance of rain. Lows 38-45. Highs 46-53.

DAYS 6-10 (DECEMBER 1-5)
Rain to start the period then a drying trend. Temperatures above normal, but warmest to start.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 6-10)
No major cold expected. Minor to moderate storm systems to watch but odds favor rain/mix over snow at this point.

Friday Forecast

10:23AM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 25-29)
Black Friday, and exactly one month until Christmas Day. This crazy month begins, or already started several hours ago, with the beginning of Black Friday, with many folks lining up upside stores in a damp drizzle. It could have been a lot worse than that. The rest of the day itself will continue to be damp and drizzly with a few areas of rain around as well. The evolution of low pressure looks like it will take most of the action offshore for the weekend (Saturday-Sunday), which should end up mainly dry overall. By early in the coming week, expect fair weather Monday, but this may be short-lived as a system approaches from the west by Tuesday.
TODAY: Cloudy. Areas of drizzle. Chance of rain. Highs 39-46. Wind light E.
TONIGHT: Cloudy. Areas of drizzle. Chance of rain. Lows 34-40. Wind light SE.
SATURDAY: Cloudy to partly sunny. Highs 40-48. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Partly sunny. Lows 28-35. Highs 38-45.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows 23-32. Highs 40-48.
TUESDAY: Increasing clouds. Chance of rain PM. Lows 30-38. Highs 48-55.

DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 30-DECEMBER 4)
Milder with some wet weather expected November 30 and December 1, then a trend to drier and a little colder.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 5-9)
Next low pressure area brings a threat of of rain/mix to the region early to mid period. Temperatures near to above normal.

Thursday Forecast

8:18AM

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 24-28)
A series of fairly weak low pressure areas will keep the weather unsettled for the next few days. There will not be any widespread major impact from these systems. There is just a slight risk that a brief coating of snow may occur in some areas far west and north of Boston today and a little patchy freezing drizzle may occur in the early hours of Friday in similar areas. The last of the lows will intensify a little more quickly offshore Saturday night and Sunday but will be too far offshore to throw any meaningful precipitation back into the region, which may very well have been snow if it occurred. High pressure builds in with fair weather by Monday.
TODAY: Mainly cloudy. Spotty light snow mainly west and north of Boston for brief periods of time through midday. Scattered rain showers possible mainly south and west of Boston late. Highs 38-45. Wind light variable.
TONIGHT: Cloudy. Patchy drizzle, which may freeze on a few surfaces far north and west of Boston. Lows 31-38. Wind light E.
FRIDAY: Cloudy. Areas of drizzle. Highs 39-46. Wind light E.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Areas of drizzle. Chance of rain. Lows 34-40. Wind light SE.
SATURDAY: Cloudy. Areas of drizzle and a chance of rain mainly in the morning. Highs 40-48. Wind light E shifting to N and increasing to 10-20 MPH by late day.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy. Risk of a rain or snow shower. Lows 28-35. Highs 38-45.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows 23-32. Highs 40-48.

DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 29-DECEMBER 3)
Low pressure system may bring a precipitation threat, likely rain, about the middle of the period. Temperatures near to above normal.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 4-8)
Next low pressure area brings a threat of of rain/mix to the region early to mid period. Temperatures near to above normal.

Wednesday Forecast

12:58PM

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 23-27)
Extended Thanksgiving Weekend has arrived, and after a bright and brisk travel day today we won’t see much of any sun for the remainder. First, a weak low pressure area will move into the region Thursday and be weakening further as it does so, but will bring enough moisture for some patchy light snow/freezing drizzle in the morning and early afternoon and then some rain showers at night. A broad area of low pressure will continue to impact the region through the weekend with periods of wet weather. We’ll have to watch for some patchy icing well northwest of Boston in the early hours of Friday morning, and we’ll also have to see how the end of the unsettled period evolves by Sunday as the air will get cold enough to support some snow for parts of the region if the moisture is still around.
THIS AFTERNOON: Sunshine. Highs 37-44. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
TONIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 22-30. Wind light NW to N.
THURSDAY – THANKSGIVING: Mostly cloudy. Spotty light snow and freezing drizzle mainly north and west of Boston morning through midday. Brief coating of snow possible in a few locations. Isolated to scattered rain showers mainly Boston west and south later in the day. Highs 40-48. Wind light variable.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Periods of rain, may create a little icing on some surfaces far north and west of Boston. Lows 31-40. Wind light E.
FRIDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Highs 40-48. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain mainly morning. A few rain showers afternoon. Lows 35-42. Highs 42-50.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy. Rain to snow showers. Lows 35-42. Highs 38-45.

DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 28-DECEMBER 2)
Low pressure is most likely to impact the region with a threat of most likely rain around November 29-30. Temperatures moderate to near to above normal.

DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 3-7)
Another system around the middle of this period will bring the threat of some rain and/or snow. Temperatures near to above normal overall.
