Today's Weather: Possible Light Snow Turns To Rain And Ends This Evening

The word “meh” is a good word to describe our weather today, as the winter of basically no snow storms or prolonged cold spells rolls along.

Today, a warm front moving toward New England brings some light rain and wet snow. I am expecting temperatures to rebound into the 40s, so if there is some snow this morning north of the Mass Pike heading toward New Hampshire and into Maine, it will be changing over to rain.

There could be a coating of perhaps an inch in the higher elevations of northern Worcester and Middlesex Counties. Most of the accumulating snow will be in New Hampshire or Maine.

The rain does mean that conditions will be slower for travel as you come home this evening. I expect the bulk of the rain to shut off between about 8 and 11 p.m., setting us up for a sunny Wednesday. Temperatures tomorrow will be in the lower 40s. It will be breezy, so it's going to feel a bit chillier than the thermometer says.

Much colder air arrives for Thursday and Friday, when temperatures will stay in the upper 20s to low 30s during the afternoon. It will be very sunny, so although it's cold, the temperature will not be too uncomfortable.

A warming trend takes place this weekend and as a matter of fact, we could see some 50-degree weather by the time we get to Sunday afternoon, but the lack  of true winter weather continues.
