Up, Up and Away
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Tons of sun, a milder than normal start, and a not-so-cold airmass: that's what brought us into the upper 40s this afternoon. Now that the winds have settled, we'll feel the pinch of colder air tonight...and tomorrow.
Highs will make it to the low 40s, but it certainly will feel colder than that. Clouds will swarm overhead as the sun goes into hiding for a couple of days. Showers should hold off, but when they arrive in the evening, there might be some pockets of sleet (bouncy stuff, not glazing ice) around Worcester's suburbs. It's brief and isolated, but it still is noteworthy....in this overwhelmingly mild pattern.
After this (slight) setback Friday, the temperatures are up, up and away. Saturday has the potential to be in the 50s, but with the sun still on siesta, I'm keeping it firmly planted in the 40s.
Sunday's the breakout day. Very much like spring, very much in the 50s. In fact, with enough sun, we could cozy up to 60 in some spots (away from the Capes and SE Mass.)! Pats' game is looking balmy and breezy. There is a slight chance at a shower from halftime on, but it's nothing that would be a game-changer.
Colder trend early next week could have the flakes flying by Tuesday (man, there's a lot going on). It'll be just cold enough to stick in some places too. (Stand by for the hype.) Got our eyes on this one.
We mentioned the changeup late next week, and that is certainly still in the cards. The picture is becoming clearer too. It looks like we'll miss out on the most intense cold (glides by just to the north), but with highs NEAR 20 and lows around 0, I think we're good.
