Skies are expected to be partly sunny and there may be a passing snow flurry or two, especially across areas near and north of the Mass Pike. Temperatures the rest of this afternoon will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. Winds will be West at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 to 45 mph. Tonight: It will remain windy during the first half of tonight with the winds diminishing late tonight. In addition, skies tonight will be clear to partly cloudy. Low temperatures will be between 20 and 25 Degrees. Winds will be West at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph before midnight and West at 10 to 20 mph after midnight. Friday: An area of high pressure will control the weather throughout the day on Friday with lots of sunshine expected throughout the day. High temperatures will be near 45 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 10 to 20 mph. Friday Night: That high pressure system is expected to move to the east as a frontal system begins to approach the region from the Great Lakes. Skies will start out partly cloudy during the evening, but will be cloudy after midnight. Temperatures will start out near 35 Degrees during the evening, but will rise into the low to mid 40s late at night. Winds will be Southwest at 10 to 20 mph. Saturday: A strong cold front is expected to push across the region late Saturday afternoon and early Saturday evening bringing with it another round of rain and windy conditions. Rain will overspread the entire area by mid-morning with the rain expected to continue into the early and mid-afternoon hours before ending from west to east by late afternoon. Rainfall amounts of around one half of an inch (0.50”) looks likely during Saturday. High temperatures will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 to 40 mph with the wind direction becoming westerly late in the day. Sunday & Monday: Lots of sunshine is expected for both Sunday and Monday. High temperatures Sunday will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. High temperatures Monday will be near 45 Degrees. Tuesday Through Next Thursday: A strong blocking upper level high pressure system will be in place over Greenland with an upper level trough of low pressure in place over the Great Lakes region. At the same time, it looks like that the storm track from the central United States into the eastern United States will be quite active next week. Another round of rain looks likely for late Tuesday through the day on Wednesday. This should be followed by a return to some sunshine for next Thursday. High temperatures Tuesday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. High temperatures Wednesday will be near 45 Degrees. High temperatures next Thursday will be near 35 Degrees. For those of you that are looking for accumulating snow chances – Given the expected weather pattern for all of this month, which looks to be the most wintry pattern I’ve seen in at least ten years, I don’t think we’ll be waiting too much longer. In fact, the chances of a White Christmas this year looks to be quite good. Anyways, latest data reveals that I think there’s a chance for at least some accumulating snow either late next weekend (weekend of December 10-11) or during the first half of the week of December 12. It’s not a sure thing, by any means, but it is something to certainly keep an eye on.
