Canadian high pressure will build south over northern New England
tonight. As it pushes south, scattered rain and snow showers will
move across our region through the evening hours, afterwhich there
will be a lull in the precipitation. Under clearing skies tonight
north of the Mass Pike, temperatures will fall into the mid and
upper 20s. Along and south of the Mass Pike, skies will remain
mostly cloudy with temperatures falling into the low and mid 30s.
The high will begin to slip east of New England on Sunday while a
stalled cold front just to our south begins lifting northward as a
warm front. This will result in a period of light rain for western
Massachusetts and western Connecticut, with pockets of freezing rain
at the onset. Elsewhere across the region, expect mainly dry
conditions, however cool easterly winds will keep a damp feel to the
air. Temperatures will only rise into the upper 30s to lower 40s.
On Sunday night, light rain will become more likely for all of
Southern New England. But cold air draining from north to south into
our interior valleys could produce scattered freezing rain and
sleet. Low temperatures will be in the upper 20s across the
northwest, with low 30s elsewhere.
On Monday, pockets of freezing rain and sleet may linger in the
morning north of the Mass Pike and outside of I 495, otherwise
periods of rain will continue throughout the day. Temperatures will
top out in the 40s.
A storm system will finally move through our region late Tuesday,
but not before continued chances for rain. Clearing and drying
conditions follow on Wednesday and Thursday. The next chance for
rain will come later on Friday into Saturday, with perhaps a wintry
mix across northwest sections.
