Clouds will increase from west to east during the day on Friday, before a brief wintry mix late day into this evening. Highs will mainly be in the 40s to near 50.
The light rain and snow showers will break out west of Worcester between 3 and 6 p.m., with an arrival after 6 p.m. closer to Boston.
While mostly rain will fall in Greater Boston, a few wet snowflakes will mix in from time to time when the precipitation falls a bit heavier.
In parts of northwestern Connecticut, western and central Massachusetts, Vermont, northern New Hampshire, and Maine, a dusting to 2 inches of snow will fall late Friday and Friday night, along with a touch of glaze from some light freezing rain.
The light wintry mix continues off and on through Friday night, before ending as rain showers first thing on Saturday. This will mostly be done by 7 to 9 a.m., with sunshine quickly developing after that point. That will allow temperatures to soar into the 60s and even close to 70.
Clouds will increase again on Sunday, but it will still be nice. Highs will be in the 50s and 60s, coolest along the coast thanks to an onshore wind.
