Chillin’ Out

The seasons are a changing, and that chilly feel to the air is certainly apparent this morning. With 6am temps running at 29 in Worcester and 37 in Boston, it’s good enough to give us the coldest air in those two cities since April. Add in a breeze, and wind chills for many run in the mid to upper 20s to start the day. Puffy coat warning now in effect!

The November chill lasts through the day with highs running in the mid to upper 40s this afternoon despite some sun. While much of the day is dry, a few sprinkles may grace the outer Cape from time to time.

Tonight it’ll be cold. Many towns fall into the mid to upper 20s with mid 30s the bottom in Boston.

With a chilly start to the day Thursday, it’s no surprise that it’ll be another cool day overall. However, this time, we track precipitation into the area. While most of the morning is dry, aside from a few sprinkles coming in off the ocean, most of the afternoon, through overnight hours, become wet.  There’s even enough cold air initially to provide a period of wet snow across northern CT and western MA. Even in central MA, a brief period of flakes/sleet mixing in during the early afternoon is possible. I don’t expect much accumulation in Worcester County, however, a slushy coating to a couple inches are possible in the higher terrain of western MA with more substantial totals to the north. Any mix flips to rain tomorrow afternoon and rain becomes the story tomorrow evening and overnight with localized downpours a possibility. Generally, 0.50-1.50″ of rain falls across the area. Gusty winds develop along the south coast tomorrow night too, with gusts over 40 possible across Buzzards Bay/Cape/Islands. The storm wraps up early on Friday.

The weekend is seasonable temp-wise, in the 50s, and more dry hours than wet. Although, I can’t rule out a few passing showers. The highest chance for that is an isolated sprinkle or brief shower late Saturday and a few isolated showers on Sunday.

Halloween doesn’t look so scary… near 50 and dry!

Stay warm!
