The Short Visit
Posted by Chris Lambert
It's great to see that sunshine back with us this morning as yesterday's clouds and mist are now behind us. It'll be a dry Sunday with temperatures averaging in the upper 40s.
Don't get use to a lot of sun though, as it's quick visit ends as clouds thicken this afternoon and showers move in this evening. There may be just enough cold air north of route 2 in Worcester County and in SW New Hampshire, that this storm starts as a brief mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain. Accumulations there would be under an inch, but a few slick spots are possible after midnight, into the pre-dawn hours. For the rest of us... it's a rain event. Rain will be steady after midnight and continue to be heavy at times until about 7AM tomorrow.
After the early morning steady rain, we'll get some dry stretches between scattered showers through the rest of the day and into the evening. Temps jump up to near 60 for many in the Boston area, points south and rise into the 50s north of the city. Although, they'll hold in the 40s across southern NH, where the warm front has a tough time getting through.
Heading to the Pats game? Early tailgating weather is in the low 60s, and holding at least into the mid 50s through the game. Dry stretches are possible during the tailgate and game time festivities, but I'd still prepare for scattered showers. Most of the showers won't work through until midnight and there after as the actually cold front heads in.
Cooler and drier weather rules the rest of the week.
