We’re off to a mild start temperature-wise, but that will quickly change as we head into your Veterans Day forecast. If you’re planning on going to any Veterans Day parades, make sure to bring a jacket (and a warm hat might not be a bad idea either).
Winds pick up in a big way today, as a cold front pushes into Massachusetts from our northwest. While we’ll manage to stay dry today, we will see some windy conditions in relation to this front. For most locations wind gusts could reach up to 30 mph today with even windier weather at the Cape. The Cape is under a Wind Advisory starting this afternoon, wrapping up late tonight with wind gusts up to 40 mph possible.
What’s more is that after this cold from moves through New England, temps will fall as cold air (behind the front) moves in this late morning and afternoon. Temperatures will start dropping first in northwestern Mass., with cooler air moving into southeastern Massachusetts into the late afternoon/early evening.
Saturday looks to stay dry as high pressure builds to our west, but we hold on to our windy weather with chilly northwesterly winds still gusting up to around 25 mph. Gear up for a brief cool-down tomorrow with highs near 47°. Despite being mid-November, our chilly weather scoots out by Sunday AND we keep dry skies through the weekend! Temps return to near 60° for the second half of your weekend, and the start of next week. Our next best shot at some wet weather returns Tuesday evening, and sticks around into Wednesday as an area of low pressure tracks up the east coast.
Happy to honor our veterans today!!
