Baseball season may be over, but in baseball terms, it looks like we’re 2 for 2 this weekend. Ok, maybe not back to back home runs as it has been a bit cool, but good enough to get those outdoor actives off as planned. I saw lots of leaves getting raked up around the neighborhoods yesterday, I’m sure many folks will be doing the same again today.
Today will be a bit milder than yesterday as morning clouds thin out and yield to afternoon sun. Highs range from near 50 in the higher terrain of Worcester County to the mid 50s in Boston.
We’ll hold onto the milder weather for a few more days as we kick off the new workweek with temps in the mid to upper 50s Monday through Wednesday. Tuesday afternoon features more clouds and lots of clouds on Wednesday may produce a shower or two as a cold front blows in from the west. Behind that front, we cool off and stay cool through the end of the week.
The chill for the end of the week is part of a nation wide blast of cold air that’ll make national headlines. The core of the cold stays west of us, but by Friday, highs struggle to surpass the upper 30s. We’ll also watch the potential of some snow showers making their way into Southern New England as a piece of energy working in from our west may help pull in some moisture from a storm that’s offshore. Right now, it doesn’t appear the connection is there for a big storm.
Flakes or not by Friday morning, the longer range pattern favors cold weather for much of the eastern half of the country, even into the following week.
Enjoy the weekend!
