Forecast: Dreary Day With Scattered AM Showers

Not the best weather for Veterans Day if you have the day off, but at least the closed schools are lessening the volume of traffic on the roads this morning. There isn’t a lot of rain today and the steadiest rainfall will occur over Cape Cod. Across the rest of the area, scattered showers and a persistent moist flow of air will be prevalent this morning.

After noon today any rain ends, and we are left with just clouds and a damp evening. The evening commute will take place with generally dry roads, but of course it’s quite dark by 5 p.m.

Thursday starts much better, but quickly another system moves in for later in the day. More showers mean a wet evening commute. Since it’s a Thursday and not a holiday, the evening commute will likely be very slow.

The showers end early Thursday evening, and then we resume the dry and seasonably cool weather for the weekend. All November activities should go on without a hitch. The mornings will be cool this weekend with scattered frost. This certainly isn’t too tough to take considering it could snow this time of year.

The leaves will dry out Friday so that by Saturday and Sunday you should have a good opportunity to make a nice dent in any yard work that you need to do.

Next week a milder flow of air from the southwest returns temperatures to above average once again. We could see 60-degree reading, but not the 70s of earlier this month. The deeper in November we go, above average doesn’t get us nearly as warm, but it’s still pretty nice.

Today: Rain ending, remaining cloudy and cool. Highs 48-53.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 40.

Thursday: Clouds return with late day showers. Morning sun in some areas. Highs in the lower 50s.

Friday: Mostly sunny and blustery. Highs in the mid 50s.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high approaching 50.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 50.
