Today's Weather: Still Cold And Dry

Until we get to the possibility of showers this weekend, things continue to be mostly dry and cold. Plenty of sunshine will greet all of us today and continue until it goes down later this afternoon. We've already reached the earliest sunset of the year, although the days won't start getting longer until after the winter solstice. The mornings won't start getting brighter until early January.

A reinforcing blast of colder air moves into the region for Wednesday and as the winds turn more northerly there could be some snow shower activity over Cape Cod and the Islands and perhaps as far north as Plymouth County.

This will also make Wednesday the coldest day of this week and with a gusty wind, it will feel quite chilly.

The weather continues to be dry for Friday but on Saturday a storm system will move close to the region. The exact track of the storm will determine just how much rain we receive, but it doesn't look like a big rainstorm just a cloudier and damp weekend.

Temperatures will be in the normal range throughout the weekend and actually next week, readings look to be milder than we've experienced over the past seven days. I don't see any snow in sight and if you are thinking that you'd like to have a white Christmas, it may not happen.
