Brrr…. Chilly start this morning eh? Norwood hit a low of 18 degrees, Pepperell and Orange dropped to 19, and even the city of Boston fell to 30, which marks the first time below freezing in the city this Fall and the coldest temperature in the city since March 23rd.
Overall, the the sun wins out today, but don’t expect temperatures to take off. We’ll make it to the upper 30s on average, so a bit of a recovery, but also a cold day by mid November standards as highs run well below the average of 52 for this time of year.
Mainly clear skies prevail tonight, and it’ll be a quick drop in temperatures this evening. Lows fall back to near where they were this morning, although, temps may bounce up a bit near daybreak tomorrow as clouds start filling in. More clouds continue to be prevalent tomorrow, however, the trade off is the milder temps as highs hit the mid 40s.
The increase of clouds Sunday foreshadow the next storm to come as some precipitation breaks out predawn Monday morning. The set-up is just cold enough for a brief period of a wintry mix outside 495 to occur near sunrise Monday with any patchy sleet/freezing rain creating a few slick spots in Southern New Hampshire/Northern Worcester County. Even there, it’ll turn to a mainly rain event, and certainly a rain event close to the coast as highs Monday warm well into the 40s with an easterly wind (even 50s over Southeast Mass).
Behind Monday’s storm, we await another blast of chilly air by mid November standards as a gusty west wind ushers in dropping temps Tuesday, and keeps it cold into Wednesday. Wednesday morning likely features temps in the 20s and wind chills in the single digits!
Stay warm, have a great weekend, and go Pats!!!!!!
