New England’s weather pattern of oscillating temperatures, alternating between peaking warm and dipping cool every other day or so, will continue for the foreseeable future and today is a warm peak.
Although wind today will be just about as strong as yesterday, gusting to 40 mph at times, the feeling will be entirely different as a southwest wind direction teams with lots of sun to boost temperatures to 55-60 degrees by afternoon for most of us, and 45-50 even in snow covered communities of the North Country!
Clouds will thicken overnight with an active southwest breeze keeping temperatures in the 40s, and rain showers will develop Wednesday morning.

It’s a big travel day Wednesday and the period of developing rain will last longest in Eastern New England — not dropping more than scattered rain and high terrain snow showers in Western New England, but a steady rain from morning to midday in Worcester, wrapping up during early afternoon in Boston and mid to late afternoon on Cape Cod. Thereafter, drier and cool air blows into New England, locking in sunshine for Thanksgiving Day for great local travel conditions with highs in the 40s and a repeat performance on Friday.
Continuing in our pattern of ups and downs, Saturday will bring temperatures back into the 50s ahead of some evening showers with a passing cold front, then drier and cooler air sets in for a couple of days Sunday into the start of next week... before our next moderation in the exclusive 10-day Early Warning Weather Forecast.
