Forecast: Clear, Blustery Day Ahead

Most of the shower activity from the overnight is now moving north of the region. This will leave the area with damp roads and some showers this morning but not heavy rain and not a large impact to the morning commute. Clouds will still dominate much of the day, although there will be breaks of sunshine this afternoon as temperature remain mild in the 40s to near 50 over Cape Cod.

Another weak weather disturbance brings a few showers overnight and into the first part of Thursday. Some of the higher elevations may see a few snow showers but nothing significant.

Colder and drier weather with abundant sunshine closes out the week and starts the weekend. If you have shopping or parties to attend, the weather won’t stop you this weekend.

A storm will pass out to sea south of the Boston area on Sunday or Monday and may bring a quick bit of a rain or snow showers later in the weekend. Presently, this still appears to be a minor system. The next weather maker comes about Christmas eve, but this one looks too warm for snow. The odds of a White Christmas are fading fast, but not impossible yet.

Wednesday: A few morning showers, then clearing and blustery. Highs in the mid 40s.

Wednesday night: Blustery along with a period of showers late at night. Some snow in the higher elevations. Lows of 33 to 39.

Thursday: Any rain or snow showers ends, followed by a blend of clouds and sunshine but not as strong. Highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Friday: Mostly sunny with light winds. Highs in the upper 30s.

Saturday: Mostly sunny with a high around 40.

Sunday: Clouds thickening with a chance of a rain or snow shower. Highs of 38 to 42.
