It’s just a little uneven mix to get your attention Thursday morning.
We’re on the brink of a drop of precipitation, and with temperatures near or slightly above freezing, the stage is set for ice pellets, flakes and isolated pockets of freezing rain – mostly the west of Massachusetts, northern Worcester County, and parts of southern New York. Hampshire.
Wet roads can be expected for almost everyone as the ground is not frozen and is trending upward with temperatures throughout the morning. As we move towards mid-morning, all locations will experience intermittent showers, with the wet weather ending after lunch in all areas except the Cape and Islands.
It’s raw and chilly for many, but in the areas mentioned above we could reach the mid 50s in the afternoon. We’ll never completely shake off the clouds overnight, with temperatures remaining in the “mild” 40s for most places.
Don’t let Friday’s mild ‘heat’ in the 50s fool you. Colder temperatures roll in through the weekend, with a few clouds mixing in at times. Saturday sees more than Sunday, but both days only have highs in the 40s. And if you go to northern New England, highs will reach the 30s. Call it a weekend semi-winter end.
We will slowly moderate the temperature next week, while avoiding an offshore storm on Tuesday. Overall, the model is quiet and cool at the end of the week. Enjoy the peace and quiet!
