Regional Weather Story
National Weather Service Taunton MA
405 PM EST Wed Feb 22 2017

It was unseasonably warm this afternoon with highs topping out in
the 50s.  Normal highs for this time of year range from the mid 30s
to low 40s.

High pressure positioned off the mid Atlantic coast will continue to
escort warmer and moister air into our region tonight and Thursday
on southwest winds. Lows tonight will relax back into the 30s. Then
for Thursday, expect near record warmth across the interior with
highs topping out in the low and mid 60s. Across the south coast,
highs will be capped in the 50s due to southwest winds blowing
across relatively cooler ocean water.

For Thursday night, areas of fog will develop along with patchy
drizzle, especially along the south coast. Lows will only be in the
upper 30s to mid 40s.

A large area of low pressure will lift across the Great Lakes region
Friday, with its attendant cold front forecast to move through our
region late Saturday. Unseasonable warmth will continue for our
region and be accompanied by a few rain showers on Friday and more
widespread showers late Saturday with perhaps some rumbles of

Blustery and more seasonable conditions will follow on Sunday and
Monday. It promises to be dry on Sunday but there is a slight risk
for showers on Monday. Seasonable temperatures should continue on
Tuesday, then moderate above normal on Wednesday with the chance for
rain showers.
