Forecast: Snow/Rain Showers Possible Through The Weekend

A lot of clouds but also some sunny breaks will be the weather theme on this final day of the workweek. It’s going to feel like December, but still look more like November without any snow on the ground. Winds will be much lighter today.

High pressure will circulate some moisture into eastern New England Saturday and Sunday, along with the chance of some periodic light snow or rain showers. There may be enough snow to coat the grass in places, but with temperatures above freezing during the day, roads should stay wet, not white.

This flow of moisture will continue even into Monday and although I don’t expect any precipitation, I also don’t expect much sunshine. Seasonable temperatures will continue throughout the period with the coldest days this weekend when it stays in the 30s.

Next week a weak system will brush the area Tuesday with some light rain or higher elevation snow showers, again not an important system.

Christmas Eve turns stormy with a windswept rain and very mild air. Temperatures will rise well into the 50s! It clears out on Christmas along with blustery conditions. Enjoy the weekend.

Friday: Clouds and some sunny breaks. Highs in the mid 30s.
