For This Afternoon & Tonight: The low pressure system, which brought Western and Central Mass between 1 and 2 inches of snow last evening followed by mixed precipitation & then rain, will move through the Gulf of Maine and towards Atlantic Canada this afternoon and tonight. Any leftover rain will end across the region by 1-2 pm this afternoon with some clearing expected by sunset today. Temperatures this afternoon will be between 44 and 48 Degrees. Winds will be North to Northwest at 10 to 20 mph. Skies tonight will feature lots of clouds and some stars. Low temperatures will be near 30 Degrees. Winds will be West at 10 to 20 mph. Thursday: A northwesterly wind flow will be in place across the region during Thursday. In addition, a surface trough of low pressure looks to push through the region during the late morning through the afternoon hours. Skies during the day on Thursday will feature a mixture of some sunshine and lots of clouds. It also looks like there will be a few snow and rain showers pushing through the region during the late morning through the afternoon hours. No snow accumulation is expected from any snow showers. High temperatures will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Winds will be West at 10 to 20 mph. Thursday Night: Generally partly cloudy skies are expected on Thursday night. This means that I think that there should be a very good chance for clear enough skies to observe this year’s Leonid meteor shower. Look towards the eastern sky after midnight Thursday night and you may catch a few meteors if you wait a few minutes. Dress warmly though as low temperatures will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. Winds will be West at 10 to 20 mph. Friday Through Tuesday: An area of high pressure should control the weather for the period between Friday and Tuesday. The bug-a-boo in the forecast looks to be the possibility of a surface trough of low pressure that moves through during Sunday, which could bring some snow shower activity. A nearly zonal west to east wind flow over the eastern United States should keep any storm systems well offshore of our area this weekend into early next week. Friday looks sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees. Saturday looks partly sunny with high temperatures between 35 and 40 Degrees. Sunday is expected to feature a mixture of sunshine and clouds with some scattered snow showers during the afternoon. High temperatures will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. Monday looks sunny with high temperatures between 35 and 40 Degrees. Tuesday looks sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures near 40 Degrees.
