Calm Before the (Mainly Rain) Storm

The next several days look quiet and milder! A southwest wind will allow temperatures to climb into the 40s by this weekend. This mild air will set the stage for our next storm on Sunday. Low pressure moving northeast out of the Gulf of Mexico will bring rain showers Sunday afternoon. Arctic air is lacking in this set up. But as the storm deepens off the coast of Nantucket, some colder air could cause rain to change over to a wintry mix briefly before ending. Luckily this is a quick hitter! The storm is moving out by Monday morning.

Colder air streams in by New Years Eve with high temperatures in the 20s! Luckily, the weather will cooperate by remaining dry for New Years Eve plans.

Arctic air arrives January second with a reinforcing shot of cold air with some towns staying in the teens for high temperatures!

Tonight: Partly cloudy to clear. Lows: 17-24
Tomorrow: Partly to mostly sunny and a bit milder than recent days. High temperatures in the mid to upper 30s inland. Near 40 degrees for the shoreline.
Saturday: A mix of sunshine and clouds. Mild for this time of year! High temperatures in the low to middle 40s.
Sunday: Cloudy with rain developing (mainly late). Rain could change to an icy mix at night. High temperatures in the lower 40s.
Monday: /mix ending before daybreak. Gradually turning partly cloudy. High temperatures in the upper 30s to around 40 degrees.
Tuesday: Breezy and colder with high temperatures in the mid to upper 20s! Sunshine mixing in with a few afternoon clouds.
