A couple weeks from Christmas and a few weeks from New Years, and winter around New England has been hard to find so far.  Sure, we’ve had a few chilly days and frosty starts here and there, but no sustained cold.  Despite being close to seasonal levels the last couple afternoons, temps once again bounce back toward the mild side over the course of the next 7 days. 

While I don’t see a lot of rainfall over the next few days, I do expect some drops in the forecast.  With a southerly breeze overnight, increasing humidity and moisture, patchy fog and patchy drizzle will form late, mainly after midnight.  Temps steady themselves near 40 overnight, and even rise a few degrees by daybreak.  We’ll start tomorrow of on the murky side with patchy fog/drizzle and even a passing shower for a few.  Midday and afternoon hours feature dry weather and even some breaks in the overcast.  Afternoon temps shoot back into the mid to upper 50s. 

We’ll near 60 Friday and Saturday afternoon. 

Sunday’s temp forecast is a bit tricky as a cool front from the north/northeast tries to sneak in.  While these "backdoor" cool fronts in the Fall aren’t as dramatic as they are in the Spring, it may be enough to hold temps around and north of Boston to near 50, while the 60s are reserved for towns closer to western CT and NYC.  Skies stay rather cloudy too. 

Monday features the best shot of rain with temps warming to near 60 by the evening/overnight.  

No cold Tuesday or Wednesday either…. 50s at least. 

Enjoy not having to shovel… at least for now.
