Forecast: Dry, Breezy And Seasonably Cold

The weather will be dry but on the breezy side to start 2020. A northwest flow of air will bring back the sun along with seasonably cold temperatures through Thursday.

The next system that will affect us in Massachusetts approaches Friday. We will be on the warmer side of this storm so the precipitation will be rain, not snow. But as the storm departs Sunday, cold air will quickly follow.

Clouds should spread over the area later Thursday night with showers expected to develop by daybreak Friday. Keep those umbrellas around during Saturday as periods of rain will occur into early Sunday.

Although temperatures will moderate to around 50, they will drop quickly back to the 30s on Sunday. In fact, some of the precipitation could end as wet snow Sunday morning.

Next week will feature winter again with slightly below normal temperatures and a return to sunshine. The normal temperatures for this time of year are a high of 44 and low of 37.
