Today's Weather: High Winds Could Cause Power Outages, Downed Trees
A high wind warning has been issued across the state, as Massachusetts could see gusts up to 65 miles per hour Monday.
Predicting exactly how strong winds are going to be during the middle part of the day is somewhat difficult, but we do know winds will be gusty enough to perhaps bring down some trees and subsequently cause power outages.
A few snow showers were also crossing the area Monday morning.
Projected high gust speeds are strong enough for the possibility of damage and also could create some delays at Logan airport. These strong winds are going to pull in very cold air.
Temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday will be more than 10 degrees below average and with the wind, at times, it will feel below zero. There's probably one more Arctic outbreak on the horizon in about a week, but the days of this type of cold are certainly numbered. The other weather feature this week is going to be a small storm system Wednesday night. This could bring some light snow to the region with a coating up to an inch or two 2 possible. It doesn't look like a major system and that range is just an early thought.
Temperatures will moderate a bit after the snow and set us up for a rainstorm this coming weekend. This particular storm looks to be fairly significant with perhaps some heavy precipitation amounts. There may also be additional wind with this storm.
