Boston Area Could See Some Light Snow Late This Weekend
Wednesday is a sombre and rainy day. The final bout of harder rain is expected to arrive in time for the PM commute after a round of morning storms that seriously disrupted the AM commute.
There will only be sporadic light showers and drizzle over the next few hours. Between 3 and 7 p.m. is when the final burst of steady rain is predicted to occur.
After then, the nighttime sky will gradually clear, maybe allowing you to see the full “cold” moon.
On Thursday, there will be some gusty wind along with the return of the sun. A little higher than usual high temperatures are expected.
And while we’re on the subject of sunsets, Thursday marks the year’s earliest sunset. The shortest day won’t arrive until December 21, but at least we know that sunsets will gradually (very slowly) start to become later going forward.
Simply put, the weekend was eh. Many clouds, coastal drizzle, and brief light showers. Inland, it won’t rain much, but it will be cool and mainly overcast.
There is a potential of a little light snow late Sunday night and early Monday, so keep that in mind.
Although it doesn’t appear to be a huge concern right now, we can’t completely rule out some dispersed, light accumulations.
Since the jet stream is circling the northeast, waves of low pressure will be ejected past the region. There are currently no significant storms or genuine severe cold.
elevated temperatures Wednesday will be sunny and warm, with highs in the 30s north and 40s south. As the temperature drops to almost freezing overnight, keep an eye out for slippery patches.
A weak system will pass to our north on Thursday, with highs once more in the 30s and low 40s. On Thursday afternoon, this brings a few rain showers to Boston as well as a light wintry mix and light snow showers in the mountains. We will get a break from the rain on Friday because peak temperatures will only be a few degrees lower.
This weekend starts out pleasant and warm, with Saturday highs rising into the fifties! It’s time to make some outside plans, possibly including some outdoor dining.
Late on Saturday, a cold front moves through, and by Sunday afternoon, northern New England will experience a wintry mix. By tonight, this light precipitation will reach Southern New England. Additionally, this front shows how the jet stream is moving further south.
Sunday will see a blast of colder air with highs in the 20s and 30s. Then, from Sunday into Monday, an ocean storm follows the jet stream. Although the storm’s exact path is still unknown, we can see see it edging closer to New England.
