Up ahead: Days as crisp as apples, dry as leaves
Mostly dry weather will continue through the middle of next week, though a brief shower or two could pass over the state Saturday night. Temperatures will remain a few degrees below normal through at least Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
Today will be mostly sunny, with a high around 55. Westerly winds will develop through the day, bringing gusts up to 30 miles per hour and cooling temperatures slightly. Rain is unlikely except in the Berkshires and Nantucket, where a few sprinkles can’t be ruled out. Some clouds will develop overnight, and temperatures will fall into the mid-30s, according to the weather service. Fans will see another chilly night at Fenway Park for Game 2 of the World Series, but no rain should fall.
A hazardous weather outlook has been issued overnight for freezing temperatures. The outlook remains in effect through Wednesday, for these frigid conditions will likely persist, according to the weather service.
Friday will be partly sunny, with temperatures peaking in the low 50s. A northwest wind will bring gusts up to 25 miles per hour, according to the weather service. Conditions will remain clear overnight, and temperatures will fall into upper 30s.
“We could see some light showers Saturday, but nothing too heavy,” said William Babcock, weather service meteorologist. “Sunday will be nicer, with more sun than clouds and temperatures in the upper 50s.”
Conditions will remain dry through most of Saturday, with highs rising to about 58, but a trailing cold front could bring light showers to the region and even a few snow flurries in the west along the higher terrain.
Sunday will be partly sunny, with a high near 55. No rain is expected Sunday, and the next chance of showers will be on Wednesday, according to the weather service.Jasper can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @Jasper_Craven
