Under clearing skies last night, temperatures fell back into the 20s
and low 30s across most of the region causing widespread frost. It
was relatively warmer along the south coast, Cape and islands where
morning lowS were in the low and mid 30s, but cold enough for frost
For today, high pressure over New England will slowly shift east
while a stalled cold front just to our south begins lifting north 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 today, however cool easterly winds will keep a damp feel
to the air. Temperatures will only rise into the upper 30s to lower
Rain will become more likely and widespread over our region tonight.
But cold air draining from north to south across our interior
sections could produce scattered freezing rain and sleet. Low
temperatures will fall back into the upper 20s across the northwest,
with 30s elsewhere.
On Monday, pockets of freezing rain and sleet may linger in the
morning north of the Mass Pike and outside of interstate 4 9 5,
otherwise periods of rain will continue throughout the day.
Temperatures will top out in the 40s.
There will be lull in the precipitation Monday night, when under
cloudy skies temperatures fall back into the mid 30s to low 40s.
Rain chances return on Tuesday when a large complex storm system
finally moves through late in the day. 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.
