After a chilly weekend, another stretch of warmer than normal temperatures begins today. Under a mix of clouds and sun, our highs will climb to the low 50s inland and upper 40s at the coast. There is a trade-off with the warm-up. The winds are busy, with south winds gusting 25-35 mph this afternoon.
We’ll stay dry through the evening commute, but as the night goes on some scattered light rain showers will move through. Temperatures will be in the 40s, so there’s no threat of wintry weather. The showers taper off by early Tuesday morning.
Tuesday is our mildest day of the week. Once again, most of the “day” is dry, with showers chances increasing by late day and continuing into the nighttime hours. For Massachusetts voters, plan on rain passing through as the polls close.
We’re keeping a close eye on the potential development of an ocean storm that could bring wintry weather to southern New England later Friday into Saturday. There are still a lot of details to work out, including the storm track, intensity and precipitation type. One scenario is that the storm stays far enough away to miss us completely. However, there’s also a chance for some snow or a wintry mix. Please stay tuned for more updates!
