Yet another morning here in December with temperatures way above normal---we're sitting in the upper 40s, our normal high temp for this time of year!! We also have a bunch of leftover clouds & even a pocket of showers moving through New England. This is the caboose of our weather system from yesterday. You will need that umbrella for a couple of hours this morning but after 9am...all done as sunshine returns. As for the temps, they will stay in the mid 40s for the entire day.
As we work toward tomorrow, it's a brighter day but also a colder day with temperatures crawling to 40 by afternoon. Thursday offers more sunshine and temps running in the low 40s. In fact, we can push this dry stretch of weather right into the start of the weekend with high pressure moving slow. Plan on sunshine into Saturday with temps briefly warming on Friday (upper 40s) then backing off on Saturday.
Our next storm will affect us on Sunday and this will mark the beginning of a colder pattern/storminess. Still thinking rain for coastal areas of Sunday but it will be a chilly. light rain with temps near 40 but inland (west of I-95) there will be a period of some snow Sunday morning into the afternoon. Perhaps enough to push around before changing to rain as well by Sunday evening. Plan on a cold rain at Gillette Sunday night. More on this later.
Here We Go Again--C-3PO..Return Of the Jedi. The shiny metallic one speaks the truth as yet another lil winter storm takes a swipe at us today. Like yesterday, this won't be a blockbuster but rather a continue step into winter storm with a 5-7 hour burst of snow. Here are the storm deets:
Indeed it appears winter is off to a fast start and this week looks mighty wintry. The first of 3 winter storms is upon us right now with patches of snow, sleet, freezing rain & plain old rain. It's not a blockbuster event but the early morning timing will certainly give you a case of the Mondays. As we step into the afternoon, look for pockets of drizzle along the coast and farther inland that drizzle will cling & freeze to untreated surfaces. Chilly & raw for much of the day with temps between 30-40.
