632 AWUS81 KBOX 231310 RWSBOX CTZ002>004-MAZ002>024-026-RIZ001>008-231600- Regional Weather Story National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 905 AM EDT Fri Mar 23 2018 A large area of Canadian high pressure centered just west of Hudsons Bay will build southeast while low pressure exits northeast of Nova Scotia. What this means for the weather over Southern New England is a north to northwesterly wind today blowing 10 to 15 mph under mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will warm to near seasonable levels with readings this afternoon ranging in the 40s. But then as an upper level disturbance moves overhead this afternoon, there is the risk for scattered rain showers. For tonight it will become mostly clear, except for mid and outer Cape Cod where low clouds will hang tough. Temperatures will cool into the mid 20s to low 30s. North northwesterly winds will continue on Saturday under increasing clouds. Temperatures will be cooler and only top out in the mid 30s to low 40s. Another approaching upper level disturbance will produce scattered rain and snow showers in the afternoon. The Canadian high will shift east Saturday night and Sunday yielding northeast winds across our region. This onshore flow will produce cool temperatures and scattered rain showers across much of eastern Massachusetts. Temperatures Sunday morning will range from the mid 20s to low 30s, and highs on Sunday in the mid 30s to low 40s. Looking to next week, high pressure over eastern Canada will nose south over New England providing dry weather Monday and Tuesday. It will be cool on Monday but seasonable on Tuesday. A warming trend will unfold Wednesday through Friday with the slight risk for showers. $$ KAB is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
