Mostly sunny and dry weather ahead
Mostly dry weather will continue into next week, and temperatures will remain near or below the normal range of 60 degrees. Sunshine will continue through at least Wednesday, though brief showers could show up over the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
A hazardous weather outlook, in effect through next Thursday, warns of freezing temperatures and frost through eastern and southeastern coastal Massachusetts.
Today will be mostly sunny, with a high near 51, roughly 10 degrees below normal. Some clouds could develop in the afternoon, and a northwest wind could bring gusts up to 25 miles per hour, cooling temperatures slightly.
Temperatures will fall into the mid-30s overnight, and skies will remain clear, according to the weather service.
Saturday will begin partly sunny, before temperatures crest near 60. A southwest wind could bring exceptionally strong gusts, up to 35 miles per hour during the afternoon. Clouds will develop in the afternoon, especially north of the Massachusetts Turnpike. A few brief sprinkles could pop up throughout the state overnight, but no significant precipitation is expected.
Snow showers may take place across southeast New England in the higher elevations, according to the weather service.
“If the showers happen, they will be light,” said William Babcock, weather service meteorologist. “It will be nothing dynamic, and showers should clear out early Sunday morning.”
Sunday will be mostly sunny with temperatures again climbing near 60. A west wind will bring gusts up to 15 miles per hour, according to the weather service. Clouds will develop overnight, and temperatures will fall to around 40.
Skies will remain mostly sunny and temperatures will remain below normal until at least Wednesday, when showers could return, according to the weather service.
“We could start warming up again next week to more seasonable temperatures, into the upper 50s,” Babcock said.Jasper can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @Jasper_Craven
