Today's Weather: Rainy Friday

We're in an ugly weather pattern over the next several days with Saturday being the exception to the rule.

Low pressure will cross south of New England on Friday, bringing cool temperatures and periods of rain. Winds coming in from the northeast will keep temperatures well below average. I'm expecting anywhere from half an inch to an inch of rain to fall by mid-afternoon.

Skies will clear overnight, setting us up for a nice day on Saturday. Temperatures will start chilly in the morning but end up well into the 50s and low 60s. We should see abundant sunshine as well, although there may be some increasing cloudiness late in the day.

You'll definitely want to get outside and enjoy the weather because it's not going to last. A series of low pressure areas will approach the area on Sunday, bringing back clouds and precipitation. Sunday night into Monday, it may be cold enough for some wintry weather across the highest elevations in extreme northern Massachusetts.

Monday continues to look unsettled with at least damp weather and perhaps some steady areas of rain. We'll get a break in the action on Tuesday, but there might be more wet weather in the middle of next week.
