    (Published Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019)

    Sunshine filled Wednesday with highs around 50 and a brisk breeze will keep us feeling like the 40s, especially if you are in the shade.

    We have a mainly clear sky Wednesday night with a light breeze that will allow temperatures to drop into the 20s & 30s north, while 30s to around 40 in southern areas. Clouds will begin to increase on Thursday as a wave of low pressure moves in and snow will develop in the morning towards the mountains of northern New England.

    Meanwhile, a mix of rain and snow will spread toward the higher elevations of Central New England by around noon. Rain will then arrive into southern and eastern New England during the afternoon, impacting the evening commute for many.

    It will be a chilly rain falling in Boston during the evening, so make sure you are dressed accordingly. Temperatures on Thursday will vary from the 30s north to the 50s south. Rainfall totals will be between a quarter to three quarters of an inch, and we could see some street ponding, especially in poorly drained areas.

    The rain/snow line will be well north of the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border and that’s why northern New England will get 3-to-6-inches of snow and a few more inches over the summits. As this system pulls away, we could see a few snow showers drop south into Worcester Hills and Southern New Hampshire, but it will be late Thursday into early Friday with up to an inch of snow, especially on grassy surfaces.

    This area of low pressure then intensifies in the Gulf of Maine, which could mean a little more snow over eastern Maine by Friday morning. It also ushers in the coldest air of the season so far.

    Friday will be mostly sunny with highs in the 30s but once we factor in a strong northwest wind with gusts up to 50 mph, wind chills will be in the single digits north, while teens and 20s south. It will be a shock to the system since we haven’t experienced these temperatures in over eight months.

    Isolated power outages are also a concern, especially where we experience higher gusts. Saturday will stay cold but not as windy, that will be the main difference. Highs in the 30s to around 40 will be bearable for your outdoor plans.

    Ski country will stay cold, which is great news for the resorts that will continue to make more snow for skiers and snowmobilers.

    Sunday temperatures will rebound into the 40s. We’ll start out bright, but clouds will increase as another disturbance approaches in from the west. The wind will crank up as well with gusts up to 30 mph.

    Right now, Veterans Day features a mainly cloudy sky with a few rain/snow showers as a cold front impacts the region. Behind this front, cooler air moves back in for Tuesday with highs in the 30s and 40s with a chance for snow possible for southern New England. This is a scenario we will keep a very close eye on under this new colder pattern.

    It is important to note, that temperatures for the remainder of the week will be in 30s.
