    (Published Tuesday, April 18, 2017)

    We’re tracking the cooldown! Temperatures this morning started off at least 15 to 20 degrees colder than yesterday morning and temperatures will likely not budge all too much during the daytime heating.

    By your Tuesday afternoon, temperatures will be into the mid 40s for our coastal communities as we’ll see a cool seabreeze developing, however it will be slightly warmer farther inland where temperatures could reach into the mid to upper 50s for western Massachusetts, central Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island under partly to mostly sunny skies. 

    With high temperatures will ranging from the mid 40s to near 50° today, this breaks the nine-day streak of unseasonably warm high temperatures for Boston. 

    As we look ahead towards tonight, temperatures will slip back into the mid-30s yet again with some locations into far northern New England, we could start off into the lower 30s. 

    In northern Maine, from Downeast to Presque Isle, many woke up to snow showers this morning and with the cool down continuing through this week, we could see more snow showers as the next system slides in late Wednesday into Thursday, especially for the mountains. Between 1-2” is possible for northern Maine and pockets of northern New Hampshire. 

    Otherwise, most of Wednesday will be dry, but rain showers develop by the evening from west to east. Those showers linger into Thursday, but Thursday does not look like a washout, as we’ll see a break from the rain by Thursday afternoon. Highs Thursday top out into the upper 50s. As we look ahead to Friday, another system slides in, making for a soggy end to the week with a few downpours possible. Temperatures only reach into the low to mid 50s, 40s north. 

    This weekend is looking dry and seasonable. High temperatures will be closer to normal compared to last weekend’s warmth, we’ll see highs close to 60°.
