Forecast: Cloudy Thanksgiving Day, Round Of Snow Expected Overnight

With the storm gone, Thanksgiving will be mostly dry with only a small chance of a brief flurries. Highs will in the 30s and there won’t be much sunshine.

Overnight, a weather system will back in from the ocean and bring a round of snow to coastal Massachusetts and New Hampshire. This system is not only small, but these are very difficult to predict the exact placement.

Often this type of situation results in 1 to 3 inches of snow in a small area. Think of this is a similar to lake effect snow on very small scale and not nearly as intense. The map gives a general idea where the most amount of snow will fall, but these bands can shift so everyone east of Route 495 could see some snow. The most amount of snow will likely be within a few miles of the coastline.

Skies clear later Friday, and it remains cold. Cold, but cloudy weather Saturday will be followed by a moderating trend in temperature for Sunday and Monday.

Thursday: Cloudy, with a high 35-40

Thursday night: Cloudy, snow developing after midnight. Rain showers may change to snow over Cape Cod.

Friday: Snow ends in the morning, sunshine to follow. Highs in the 30s.

Saturday: Partly sunny and cold. Highs in the mid 30s.

Sunday: Sun and clouds, with highs between 48-53.
