A high pressure system will enter New England today, bringing mostly sunny conditions and seasonable temperatures. Colder weather will move into the region Friday night, with rain showers and perhaps even some snowflakes, according to the National Weather Service.
“Some light snow showers are possible late Friday night into Saturday morning,” said William Babcock, weather service meteorologist. “It could cause some slippery conditions.”
Today will be mostly sunny with a high near 46. A light west wind will gust up to 10 miles per hour. Clouds will develop overnight and temperatures will drop into the upper 30s, according to the weather service.
Rain will arrive Thursday, mainly after 9 a.m. Temperatures will crest near 52, according to the weather service. A southeast wind will gust up to 10 miles per hour. Showers will continue all day and become more focused on the northwestern section of the state overnight. Overnight lows will only drop into the 40s.
Rain will persist into Friday, but should taper off by early afternoon. Temperatures will reach the low 50s and a light northwest wind will gust around 9 miles per hour. Rain will return overnight, as will cloudy conditions. If temperatures fall into the low 30s, rain showers could turn into snow.
The weekend will see a mixture of sun and rain, and a cold air mass will enter the region. Saturday could see early morning showers which will give way to mostly sunny conditions. Sunny conditions should continue through Sunday. Daytime highs on Saturday and Sunday will hover in the upper 30s, according to the weather service.
“Saturday’s high will be around 40, and the cold is air is entrenched for Sunday,” Babcock said. “Next week we will start returning to near normal temperatures and our first potential snow event for the week is possible as early as Monday.”Jasper Craven can be reached at email@example.com.
