Gorgeous Friday, Sunday Cool Down

Looks like Mother Nature really wants you to enjoy your Friday! Despite varied temperatures this morning, we’ll all warm up nicely today. Your Friday highs stay above normal, reaching close to 60°, with mostly sunny skies! The Cape can anticipate a few additional clouds and breezier conditions as well. Temperatures will trend a bit cooler across the coast today, but Boston should still get pretty close to that 60° mark.

Our mild stretch of weather continues into tomorrow, but as we head into your Saturday forecast, high pressure does start to lose its grip on us. This will mean we’ll see cloud cover thicken up as we move into tomorrow afternoon (which will help moderate temps, keeping highs a few degrees cooler than today).

The frontal system delivering this season’s first major snowfall (to the west, and Upper Midwest) heads our way, bringing some wet weather to New England Saturday night into Sunday. Most of us can expect rain showers with this system. However, western Massachusetts could see some some snow or a wintry mix change over as cooler air moves in. Scattered rain showers continue throughout your Sunday forecast, with normal highs in the low-50s. A few flurries could mix in Sunday night, but the Worcester Hills, Merrimack Valley and western Massachusetts stand a better chance at seeing some flakes than eastern Mass. What’s more is those that do see a few flurries, won’t get to see that stay one ground.

As this weekend’s upper level low pushes through, the jet stream also takes a nosedive southward over the northeast. This ushers in cold Canadian air for the start of next week. By Monday, some locations could struggle to hit 40° high temps.

Happy Friday, and have a wonderful weekend!
