Regional Weather Story
National Weather Service Taunton MA
900 AM EST Sat Feb 24 2018

Partly cloudy skies this morning across Massachusetts, with the
southern coast still deep in fog. Visibilities are as low as a half
mile. As winds start to pick up this morning and surface heating
begins, the fog will dissipate along the coast and islands. As the
fog dissipates along the coast, skies will remain mostly cloudy
throughout the day.

Rain showers will move in along the southern coast this afternoon,
continuing until just after midnight. Afternoon temperatures will be
in the 50s across the region, dipping into the 30s overnight.

A larger swath of rain associated with a warm front will follow
shortly after and bring widespread sleet and freezing rain to
Northern MA and higher elevations. Precip will enter the region
early Sunday morning, and overspread the region by sunrise. Winds
will pick up across Southern New England ahead of a low pressure
system. Winds will gust up to 25 mph inland, and 30 mph along the
coast.

Mixed precip will come to and end tomorrow once temperatures reach
well above freezing around noon. However, freezing rain may linger
especially at higher elevations. Afternoon temperatures tomorrow
will range from the mid 30s in NW MA to the mid 40s in SE MA. Rain
will continue throughout the day, before moving offshore by 8pm.
Overnight temperatures barely fall more than 5 degrees as a low
pressure system moves through the area.

Once the low pressure moves offshore early Monday morning, skies
will begin to clear as a high pressure builds in. Monday will be
mostly sunny and dry with a return to above normal temperatures.
Afternoon highs will range from the mid 40s in NW MA to the low 50s
across SE MA and Rhode Island. Overnight lows will range in the 20s
and 30s.
