A warm front will bring some light precipitation as it moves north today before a cold front enters the region overnight, bringing heavier rain Friday. Cold temperatures and mostly dry weather will reign over the weekend, but light snow could arrive Sunday night, according to the National Weather Service.
“A warm front today will bring a little light precipitation, but nothing significant,” said Charlie Foley, weather service meteorologist. On Friday night, “a cold front is going to approach and that could maybe bring more noticeable precipitation, but most locations should stay above freezing.”
Today will be mostly cloudy, with temperatures cresting around 50. Light rain showers are possible before 2 p.m., and could resume in the early evening, around 5 p.m. A south wind will gust around 10 miles per hour. Rain will continue overnight, and temperatures will only moderate slightly, to around 48.
Showers will last into Friday, accompanied by early morning fog. Skies will be cloudy and temperatures will hover in the mid-50s, according to the weather service. A weak northwest wind will gust around 10 miles per hour, and shouldn’t make conditions feel any cooler. Rain showers could transition into snow showers overnight if temperatures fall below 32.
Saturday will get a mixture of rain and snow in the early hours, and precipitation should end by around 9 a.m. Skies will clear up and the day will be mostly sunny, according to the weather service. Temperatures will settle in the low 40s through the day, and a northwest wind will gust around 11 miles per hour. Conditions will remain clear overnight and temperatures will fall into the mid-20s.
On Sunday, temperatures will rise into the mid- to high 30s. But as temperatures fall towards freezing in Eastern Massachusetts and into the 20s in Western Massachusetts, snow will arrive.
“During the snow Sunday night into Monday, for the Boston area, we could see an inch or so,” Foley said. “In the west, they could see 2 to 4 inches. With the initial deposit of snow and then the transition to more mild conditions we could see some freezing rain around the Monday morning commute.”
