As nice as it is to kick back, relax, hang out with friends and family over Thanksgiving weekend, it doesn't take long to feel the Christmas crunch with all the holiday shopping, parties and everything else that needs to get done before the December holidays. Not only will the super sales try to rush you into thinking late December, Mother Nature is also rushing in late December.
Temperatures the last week in November average around 48 degrees, which, we won't average anywhere close to that the next 7days. In fact, my average high temperature for the Tuesday-Saturday time frame is 39, which is the average high temperatures for.... you guessed it! December 25th.
Not only are we dealing with colder weather, but we may have to deal with a bit of snow. It doesn't look like a blockbuster storm here, but by Tuesday afternoon and into Tuesday night, some light snow may break out, with a bit of rain mixed in along the coast of SE Mass/Cape/Islands. The best chance to see the ground turn white is along and south of the Mass Pike, and it's not out of the question that portions of interior SE Mass, RI and CT pick up to a few inches of snow. A couple models hint at a stronger storm, a bit farther north, and a few even suggest almost all the precip is sent south of us. It's still somewhat of a complicated pattern, and we'll tweak the forecast as needed as more information comes in.
In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the weekend. Yeh, it's cold and windy, but at least it's dry. Monday will be nice and dry as well.
