Our weather is more like Christmas week than Thanksgiving. Tuesday morning marks the 8th time it has snowed somewhere in New England in the last 8 days.
Not all are seeing snow Tuesday morning. Temperatures are marginal for rain or snow, meaning a rain/snow line is fluctuating in Central and Northern Massachusetts for the morning commute to midday.
Due to a mix with rain, the immediate Boston Metro-area is unlikely to pick up more than an inch of snow, but those outside of Route 95 to the north and west are getting a couple of inches.
Outside of Route 495, it's cold enough for a few to several inches of snow, with the greatest snowfall expected in Western Massachusetts, Southern Vermont, Central and Southern New Hampshire and Southern Maine, where the entire event should feature snow rather than rain.
We get a break between systems with a cold high pressure Tuesday night, mostly clear low in the 10s and 20s early Wednesday, with areas of frost and black ice, low in the teens and 20s, to low 30s from north to south.
An arctic cold front moves on Wednesday, triggering afternoon and evening scattered snow squalls from north to south, respectively, ushering in the coldest Thanksgiving Day in decades.
Highs will be 20 to 25 degrees south, single numbers and teens north with wind chill values will hover either side of zero, putting Thanksgiving Day road races and football games in the frigid category. Record cold is likely Thursday night with sunshine and less wind Friday.
Though moderation is expected especially by Saturday, the next system moves in Sunday with another wintry mix.
