Weekend Outlook: March 11-14, 2022

While the clocks “spring ahead” with Daylight Saving Time beginning this weekend, we’ll still be dealing with winter at times.

High pressure remains in control into Friday with generally dry weather. We’ll be on the chilly side tonight, but temperatures should rebound nicely on Friday, though we’ll see clouds streaming in and thickening up late in the day. This is in advance of a developing low pressure system that will impact us on Saturday. Earlier in the week, it looked like this system would pass west of us, with strong southerly winds bringing in very mild air and rainfall. Well, the latest indications are that the storm will pass right across southern New England, or possibly even south of it. This means that it won’t be as windy or warm as we were thinking earlier, but we’re not looking at a major snowstorm, it’ll still be too mild. We’ll have rain developing by daybreak Saturday, and it could be heavy at times during the day. It may still be quite breezy along the South Coast and across Cape Cod if the system does move across southern New England. Once it passes by during the afternoon it will continue to intensify, with strong northwest winds behind it ushering much colder air back in by late in the day. This will likely result in the rain changing to snow before it ends in the evening. How quickly it changes over and how quickly it moves out will determine whether the snow will accumulate. Right now, the best odds for any accumulation will be from central Massachusetts into southwestern and central New Hampshire. Farther north and west, this will be quite a storm for ski country, which is good news for them.

Behind the storm, we’ll clear out for Saturday night and Sunday with high pressure building in. It will be breezy and quite chilly, but this won’t last long. Winds will subside Sunday afternoon, and as the high moves off to the east, temperatures will moderate nicely on Monday.

Thursday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 24-31.

Friday: Some morning sun, then increasing and thickening clouds. High 46-53.

Friday night: Mostly cloudy, rain develops before daybreak. Low 31-38.

Saturday: Rain, heavy at times, possibly changing to snow late in the day, becoming windy. High 45-52, possibly a little warmer across southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Temperatures will quickly drop during the afternoon

Saturday night: Windy with rain or snow showers ending in the evening, clearing late at night. Low 16-23.

Sunday: Sunshine and some afternoon clouds. High 30-37.

Sunday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 23-30.

Monday: Mostly sunny, some clouds may pop up in the afternoon. High 46-53.

Weekend Outlook: March 4-7, 2022

Winter or Spring? It depends on your definition, as March could be either. In terms of the forecast for the next few days, we’ll have both.

For most people, spring (a.k.a. astronomical spring), begins with the vernal equinox, which takes place this year on Sunday March 20 at 11:33AM. For others, meteorological or climatological spring began on March 1. No matter which definition you use, it will feel like winter into Friday. High pressure builds in tonight, with clearing and very cold conditions. Temperatures will likely drop into the single numbers in some of the cold spots Friday morning. Friday will also be rather chilly despite ample sunshine. The high slides off to the east on Saturday as low pressure heads toward the Great Lakes. It will send a warm front toward our area. The front will be accompanied by plenty of clouds, and although temperatures will turn milder with the high sliding offshore, the real mild air won’t be here yet.

Saturday night, that warm front moves through with a few showers possible, but temperatures will rise overnight. Could be there a little freezing rain or sleet over the interior right at the start? Sure it’s possible, but right now, it looks like temperatures might be a tad too warm by the time any precipitation arrives. This sets up a Sunday that will definitely feel like spring, as gusty southwest winds send temperatures to near or even over 60 degrees across the area, except for the South Coast, where the wind off the still-chilly water will act as a seabreeze. What’s the catch? We’ll still have plenty of clouds along with some showers as low pressure passes north and west of the region.

Saturday looks like a mild day across the region. Image provided by WeatherBell.

As the system moves by, it will try to drag a cold front across the area, but it doesn’t look like it will get all the way through. This has implications for Monday. Areas south of the front will stay quite mild Sunday night, while it will turn cooler north of the front. By Monday, another system quickly approaches from the southwest. This one looks a little more potent, but it will ride along that stalled out frontal boundary. Rain will redevelop in the afternoon, and it could be heavy in spots. North of the front, as colder air moves in, we could see a change to snow, especially Monday night into early Tuesday. We’ll look at this in much greater detail in our Weekly Outlook early Monday morning.

Things could start to get tricky late in the day Monday. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.

Thursday night: Clear and cold. Low 7-14.

Friday: Mostly sunny. High 28-35.

Friday night: Clear during the evening, some clouds start to filter in late at night. Low 13-20.

Saturday: Increasing and thickening clouds. High 36-43.

Saturday night: Mostly cloudy, chance for a few showers, possibly a little wintry mix well inland. Low 27-34 during the evening, temperatures rise overnight.

Sunday: Cloudy, windy, and mild with occasional showers. High 57-64, a little cooler along the South Coast.

Sunday night: Mostly cloudy. Low 40-47.

Monday: Cloudy with periods of rain or showers developing, possibly mixed with snow or sleet well inland by late in the day and at night. High 47-54, possibly cooler across southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts.

Weekly Outlook: February 28 – March 6, 2022

While there aren’t any big storms on our horizon, the upcoming week won’t exactly be quiet either.

We start off on a sunny but rather chilly note today with high pressure in control. As the high slides off to the east, temperatures will moderate a bit on Tuesday, but an Alberta Clipper will move through at night, with a few snow or rain showers likely. It pulls away early Wednesday, but another weak system quickly follows for Wednesday night into early Thursday with a few more rain or snow showers expected. High pressure then builds in for late Thursday into Friday with dry and cold weather once again.

By Saturday, the high will slide off to the east and a warm front will approach the region, with moderating temperatures. This is where things could get complicated. Low pressure will head into the Great Lakes, whie high pressure builds into Quebec. This may prevent that warm front from actually moving through the region, keeping us chilly for Saturday night and Sunday. Meanwhile, moisture will start to stream into the region ahead of that warm front. This could result in a messy mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and/or rain. It’s still far too early to try and pin down any details, but for now, Sunday looks like it could be messy.

The models are starting to show the potential for a messy weekend. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.

Monday: Sunshine and some late-day clouds. High 22-29.

Monday night: Partly to mostly cloudy. Low 4-11.

Tuesday: Plenty of clouds. High 35-42.

Tuesday night: Mostly cloudy with a chance for snow or rain showers. Low 27-34.

Wednesday: Developing sunshine in the morning, clouds return in the afternoon, snow or rain showers possible at night. High 39-46.

Thursday: More clouds than sun, breezy. High 31-38.

Friday: Sunny early, some clouds during the afternoon. High 29-36.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with a chance for snow, sleet, freezing rain, or rain. High 32-39.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a chance for snow, sleet, freezing rain, or rain. High 33-40.

Weekend Outlook: February 25-28, 2022

As we head into the final days of February, yesterday’s record highs are just a memory and a snowstorm now gets all of our attention.

Temperatures at midday were 30-40 degrees colder than they were at this time yesterday. Image provided by Pivotal Weather.

Low pressure will head toward the Ohio Valley tonight, then redevelop off the Mid-Atlantic coast, passing south of New England on Friday. We’ll see snow developing before daybreak on Friday, and it will quickly become heavy. Warmer air will start to move in Friday morning, first aloft, then at the surface. This will allow for a change to sleet, and along the South Coast and Cape Cod, eventually rain. The big question mark remains how far north does that sleet progress, since it will have a significant impact on snow accumulations? At this point, we’re thinking it gets to at least the Mass Pike, possibly Route 2. Is there a chance it makes it into southern New Hampshire? Yes, there is. By early afternoon, precipitation will lighten up, and as the storm starts to pull away, everything will go back to snow from northwest to southeast, with the snow ending during the evening.

How much snow do we expect? We really haven’t changed our thinking too much from yesterday:

Cape Cod: 2-5″
South Coast: 3-6″
Southeastern MA/RI: 5-9″
Metro Boston/MetroWest/Merrimack Valley/North Shore: 7-11″
Central and Southern New Hampshire/NH Seacoast: 6-10″

If the sleet doesn’t mix in, accumulations will be toward the higher end of the ranges, especially locations north of the Mass Pike. The longer that sleet occurs, the more likely accumulations will be toward the lower end of the ranges.

The ECMWF is probably closest to our thinking for snowfall. Image provided by WeatherBell.

Skies clear out late Friday night and Saturday as the storm pulls away and high pressure builds in. Another weak system moves through on Sunday with some clouds and possibly a snow shower or two. High pressure builds back in for Monday with some rather chilly weather for the final day of February.

Monday’s temperatures will be about 15 degrees below normal. Image provided by Weathermodels.com

Thursday night: Mostly cloudy with snow developing 3-5am. Low 19-26.

Friday: Breezy with snow, heavy at times in the morning, mixing with or changing to sleet south of Route 2, and changing to rain across the South Coast. Precipitation lightens up during the afternoon before changing back to snow showers. High 27-34.

Friday night: Snow showers end in the evening, skies start to clear out after midnight. Low 7-14.

Saturday: Sunshine and a few clouds. High 27-34.

Saturday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 13-20.

Sunday: A mix of sun and clouds, chance for a snow shower. High 33-40.

Sunday night: Becoming clear. Low 6-13.

Monday: Sunny and colder. High 20-27.

Weekend Outlook: February 18-21, 2022

We’ve got a little bit of everything coming up over the next several days.

Temperatures are in the upper 50s and lower 60s across most of the region this afternoon. Image provided by NOAA.

We’re starting off with unseasonably mild temperatures in place. Some records were set during the afternoon, and it will remain quite mild tonight as low pressure passes north and west of the region. As that system passes by, it will drag a strong cold front toward the region. A period of rain is likely tonight, and some of it could be heavy. Could there be a rumble of thunder? It’s certainly possible. The combination of rain and mild temperatures should just about take care of any remaining snow on the ground for the most part. We’ll also have some strong winds tonight ahead of that front. Sustained winds of 15-25 mph are likely across the region, with gusts of 40-60 mph expected, possibly even stronger across the Cape and Islands as well as southeastern Massachusetts.

The front moves through Friday morning, bringing an end to the rain, and also our mild weather. In fact, temperatures will likely drop during the day as gusty northwest winds usher colder air in, though the winds should diminish during the afternoon. High pressure briefly builds in for Friday night with clear skies and chilly temperatures. Another system will quickly follow for Saturday though. Clouds will stream back in, with some snow showers or squalls possible during the day, possibly mixed with rain across the South Coast and Cape Cod. We’re not expecting much, if any, accumulation for the most part, but a few of these snow showers or squalls could drop a quick 1/2 inch and coat the ground, so keep that in mind if you’ll be out driving. High pressure builds back in for Saturday night and Sunday with clear and chilly conditions once again. However, as that high slides off to the east, temperatures will moderate again for Monday.

Thursday night: Cloudy and windy with rain likely, possibly heavy. Temperatures hold steady overnight.

Friday: Showers end early, skies start to clear out in the afternoon. Breezy early, but winds diminish during the afternoon. High 53-60 in the morning, temperatures drop during the day.

Friday night: Clear skies, but some clouds may start to move back in late at night. Low 13-20.

Saturday: More clouds than sunshine and becoming breezy with some snow showers or squalls possible, mixed with a little rain near the South Coast. High 33-40.

Saturday night: Becoming mostly clear. Low 12-19.

Sunday: Sunshine and a few clouds. High 31-38.

Sunday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 23-30.

Monday: A mix of sun and clouds, milder. High 46-53.

Weekend Outlook: February 11-14, 2022

A couple of relatively mild days are expected, but changes are on the way again.

A couple of weak systems will cross the region over the next couple of days, but aside from some clouds, the most noticeable impacts will be mild temperatures ahead of each of the systems. In fact, many parts of the region could top 50 degrees on Saturday. However, a stronger cold front will move through late Saturday, bringing an end to our mild weather. As that front moves offshore and colder air settles in, a wave of low pressure will ride along the front on Sunday. While it will stay well south and east of us, it should be close enough to spread in some light snow or snow showers during the day on Sunday, especially south of Boston. This won’t be a major snowstorm, but an inch or two may accumulate across parts of southeastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod. As the system pulls away, snow will end Sunday night, and we’ll clear out on Monday, setting up a very chilly day despite increasing sunshine.

Thursday night: Clear skies. Low 24-31.

Friday: Sunshine to start the clear, clouds start to move in during the afternoon. High 42-49.

Friday night: Mostly cloudy. Low 34-41 during the evening, temperatures rise a little overnight.

Saturday: Partly sunny. High 49-56, a little cooler across Cape Cod.

Saturday night: Becoming cloudy again, light snow or snow showers may develop towards daybreak. Low 21-28.

Sunday: Cloudy and colder with light snow or snow showers expected, especially south of Boston. High 27-34.

Sunday night: Mostly cloudy, light snow or snow showers ending. Low 8-15.

Monday: Cloudy early, skies start to clear out in the afternoon. High 18-25.

Weekend Outlook: January 28-31, 2022

We’ve certainly got an eventful weekend coming up across the region.

Another chilly night is expected as high pressure slides offshore, but clouds will start to move in, and temperatures may actually start to rise after midnight as winds shift into the south and southwest. Friday will feature plenty of clouds and somewhat milder temperatures, but an approaching cold front may produce a few snow showers during the afternoon. This brings us to the main event.

We’ll give you the general idea first, then get into specifics in the next paragraph or four. Low pressure will move up the East Coast Friday night and Saturday. There are still some questions as to exact track and strength, but we are narrowing the possibilities. At this point, it looks like the storm will track just south and east of Nantucket, which means that this will be all snow for everyone, except possibly Nantucket and the Outer Cape. The storm should pull away before daybreak Sunday, with clearing Sunday afternoon, then high pressure builds in with sunshine and colder weather on Monday.

There is still disagreement among the models as to how close the low gets to Nantucket. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.

Now, let’s get to the details of the storm. As winds shift into the northeast Friday evening, the onshore flow may produce some flurries or snow showers across the region, but these won’t do much more than whiten the ground. The steady snow will spread across the region between 2 and 5am. Between about 10am and 10pm, we’ll have snow falling moderate to heavy at times, especially near the coast and south of Boston. There will be some embedded bands of intense snowfall, falling at the rate of 1-3 inches an hour, but picking out where those will develop is a fool’s errand at this point. The snow should taper off in the evening, and end from west to east between 3 and 6am Sunday. We’ll detail the amounts in a bit, as snow is not the only concern with this system.

As the storm rapidly intensifies, winds will ramp up, with sustained winds of 15-25 mph inland, and 20-40 mph along the coast and south of Boston. Wind gusts in excess of 50-60 mph are possible, especially across Cape Cod and the Islands. This will result in significant blowing and drifting snow, with blizzard conditions possible. It also will increase the threat for power outages, with trees and power lines coming down. The winds, combined with astronomical high tides (Tuesday is the New Moon), will result in coastal flooding, possibly moderate to major coastal flooding, especially at east and northeast-facing coastlines.

Wind gusts of 40-50 mph are likely across the region. Image provided by Weathermodels.com

Another factor will be temperatures. We mentioned that this will be all snow for nearly all of the region, but it’s looking like it’ll be a fluffy snow for many of us. This is both good and bad. It’s good, because it makes it a lot easier to clean up, but bad, because it allows the snow to pile up even faster. The reason it will be a fluffy snow is because it’s going to be quite chilly. Areas north and west of Boston may stay in the teens all day Saturday, with 20s from Boston southward. Add in the strong winds, and you’re looking at wind chills in the single numbers and below zero. Keep that in mind if you’re going to try and clean up the driveway a few times during the storm.

OK, we’ve gone over the timing, the winds, the coastal flooding, the temperatures, did we miss anything? Oh yeah, how much to expect. You’ve probably seen or heard that there are many models forecasting some outrageous amounts of snow. Well, as is usually the case, you won’t find that here. Oh, we’re still expecting a rather potent storm, but if you really expect widespread 2-3 feet, then we’re going to disappoint you. Since we’re still 36 hours from the start of the storm, this could still change, and we’ll likely issue another blog post tomorrow, but here’s our current thinking:

Central NH (Lebanon/Concord): 2-6″
Southern NH/Central MA (Manchester/Nashua/Fitchburg): 5-10″
Merrimack Valley/495 Belt/NH Seacoast (Portsmouth/Haverhill/Lowell/Framingham): 8-12″
I-95 corridor (Beverly/Boston/Providence): 10-15″
Southeastern MA/Cape Cod (Brockton/Plymouth/Taunton/Fall River): 12-18″ with some totals in excess of 20″ possible.

Thursday night: Becoming partly to mostly cloudy. Low 15-22, but temperatures may start to rise after midnight.

Friday: Cloudy with a chance of snow showers. High 30-37.

Friday night: Snow showers becoming a steady light snow, becoming breezy. Low 18-25 north and west of Boston, 26-33 south.

Saturday: Windy with snow, heavy at times. Temperatures will hold steady or drop during the day.

Saturday night: Snow tapers off, ending before daybreak, winds gradually diminish. Low 3-10.

Sunday: Gradual clearing, still breezy. High 19-26.

Sunday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 2-9.

Monday: Partly to mostly sunny. High 25-32.

Weekend Outlook: January 21-24, 2022

We’ve actually got a fairly simple, but cold, forecast coming up for the next several days.

A cold front crossed the region earlier today, and that cold air will continue to rush in tonight, resulting in a very chilly night as skies clear out across parts of the area. High pressure builds in for Friday with sunshine and cold temperatures, except across Cape Cod where northerly winds blowing over the relatively mild ocean will result in some ocean-effect snow showers. Another chilly night is likely Friday night, but as winds turn more into the northeast, some of those ocean-effect snow showers could move into parts of Plymouth County. Saturday remains mostly sunny but not quite as chilly, though we will still have some ocean-effect snow showers across Cape Cod and parts of Plymouth County. Temperatures start to moderate a bit on Sunday (but will remain chilly), then another cold front moves through late Sunday, bringing colder air back in for Monday.

Ocean-effect snow could produce an inch or two across parts of southeastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod. Image provided by WeatherBell.

Thursday night: Gradual clearing, mainly north and west of Boston. Low 0-7 north and west of Boston, 8-15 south of Boston, milder across Cape Cod.

Friday: Becoming partly to mostly sunny, except cloudy with some snow showers across Cape Cod and the Islands. High 17-24.

Friday night: Cloudy with some snow showers across southeastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod, clear to partly cloudy elsewhere. Low -2 to +5 north and west of Boston, 6-13 south of Boston, milder across Cape Cod.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with some snow showers across southeastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod, partly to mostly sunny elsewhere. High 21-28.

Saturday night: Plenty of clouds. Low 8-15.

Sunday: Intervals of clouds and sun. High 28-35.

Sunday night: Becoming partly cloudy. Low 11-18.

Monday: Mostly sunny. High 24-31.

Weekend Outlook: January 14-17, 2022

We’ve got a lot going on over the next few days across the region, and you probably won’t like most of it.

A storm system will develop off the Mid-Atlantic coast tonight, and rapidly strengthen as it heads northeastward, passing well south and east of the region on Friday. However, it will be close enough to spread some rain and strong winds into Cape Cod and possibly southeastern Massachusetts. At the same time, a cold front will drop down from the northwest, ushering arctic air back into the region. This may allow the rain to change to snow before it ends. Temperatures will quickly drop Friday afternoon and evening as gusty northwest to north winds continue to send the arctic air in. Any surfaces that are wet from the rain across southeastern Massachusetts will quickly freeze up Friday afternoon and evening, so keep this in mind if you’re heading out that evening.

Northerly winds may gusts to 35-45 mph on Friday, ushering arctic air into the region. Image provided by WeatherBell.

We’ll drop into the single numbers by Saturday morning, with some subzero lows north and west of Boston. With strong winds, wind chills will be well below zero Friday night and Saturday morning, so dress appropriately if you’ll be outside. Saturday looks to be a day similar to this past Tuesday with sunshine and some afternoon clouds, possibly a few snow showers across Cape Cod, and temperatures struggling to reach the lower to middle teens. Winds die down Saturday night, resulting in another chilly night, with subzero lows possible once again. Sunday starts off with some sunshine, but clouds start to move in during the afternoon as temperatures start to moderate. This brings us to the complicated part of the forecast.

With wind chills like this, Saturday morning will be a good time to stay inside. Image provided by WeatherBell.

Another strong low pressure system will develop across the Southeast and make its way up the East Coast on Sunday. There is still some uncertainty with the exact track that the storm will take, but for now it looks like it may stay near the coast or just inland, passing directly over, or just west, of our area on Monday, though this is subject to change. This track would result in snow changing to sleet and/or freezing rain and then plain rain across much of the area. However, this is far from a guarantee. There are still some models that bring the storm a little farther south and east, which would result in more snow and less rain, but as we’ve mentioned numerous times, the models have been less than trustworthy beyond 2 or 3 days recently. When (or if) a change to mix and/or rain occurs will also have a significant impact on how much snow accumulates. Given the amount of uncertainty, it’s still WAY too early to try and pin down any potential accumulations, but it’s safe to say that the farther north and west of Boston you are, the better the chance you’ll need to fire up the snowblower or find your shovels. We’ll try to post an update this weekend, once we have some better clarity on the storm.

There is plenty of uncertainty in regards to storm for Sunday/Monday. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.

Thursday night: Partly to mostly cloudy, rain may develop across Cape Cod towards daybreak. Low 26-33.

Friday: Mostly cloudy, rain likely across Cape Cod and southeastern Massachusetts, possibly changing to snow before ending, becoming windy. High 35-42, but temperatures will start to quickly drop in the afternoon.

Friday night: Clearing, windy, and much colder, except partly cloudy with a few snow showers across Cape Cod. Low -3 to +4, except milder across Cape Cod and the Islands.

Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny, breezy, and very cold, except partly sunny with a few snow showers across Cape Cod. High 10-17.

Saturday night: Clear skies with diminishing winds. Low -2 to +5, except milder across Cape Cod and the Islands.

Sunday: Sunshine to start the day, clouds move in during the afternoon. High 23-30.

Sunday night: Cloudy and becoming breezy with snow developing, possibly rain across Cape Cod. Low 14-21.

Monday: Snow, possibly changing to sleet/freezing rain/rain, especially the farther south and east you go. High 39-46.

Weekend Outlook: January 7-10, 2022

Our first snowstorm of the season is on the way for Friday, but it’s just part of a colder pattern we’re heading into for the weekend and beyond.

A variety of advisories, watches, and warnings are in effect across the region. Image provided by the National Weather Service office in Norton, MA.

Low pressure is moving across the Tennessee Valley this afternoon, and it will head east-northeastward, moving off the Mid-Atlantic coast tonight, passing south and east of New England on Friday as it intensifies. We’ll see snow developing before daybreak, and it may fall heavy at times during the morning, which will result in significant problems for the morning commute. The snow should come to an end by mid-afternoon across the region. Based on the trends in the models since last night, we are adjusting our snowfall forecast upwards a bit, but not that much. Here’s our latest projections:

Southern NH: 3-5″
NH Seacoast/Merrimack Valley: 3-6″
MetroWest/I-495 Belt: 4-7″
I/95 corridor/SE Mass/RI: 5-8″
Upper Cape Cod: 3-6″
Outer Cape/Islands: 1-3″

The National Blend of Models is closest to our thinking right now, but it may be a bit on the high side. Image provided by WeatherBell.

The storm pulls away Friday evening, and skies clear out as high pressure builds in, setting up a sunny but rather chilly Saturday, with many places likely staying in the 20s all day. With clear skies and fresh snowcover, temperatures will quickly plunge Saturday evening into the teens and possibly single numbers in some spots. Clouds stream back in late Saturday night as another system moves toward the region. While this system looks a bit milder, with southerly winds warming things up a bit on Sunday, the models have been trending less mild with every run. With that in mind, we’ll probably see some snow showers or a little freezing rain develop north and west of Boston Sunday afternoon, changing to rain by evening. Keep this in mind if you are going to be out and about Sunday afternoon. Elsewhere, just plain rain is expected. The rain may mix with some wet snow before winding down around daybreak Monday. After that, some of the coldest air thus far this winter will pour into the region. Temperatures may not rise much, if at all, Monday afternoon. The coldest weather looks to arrive on Tuesday, when highs may stay in the teens, with subzero lows possible Tuesday night. We’ll have more info on that in our Weekly Outlook early Monday morning.

Friday: Breezy with snow, possibly heavy at times in the morning, ending 12-3pm. High 28-35.

Friday night: Clearing, colder. Low 11-18.

Saturday: Plenty of sunshine, chilly. High 24-31.

Saturday night: Clear through the evening, clouds start to move back in late at night. Low 10-17, but temperatures may rise a bit after midnight.

Sunday: Cloudy and breezy with showers likely in the afternoon, possibly starting as snow or freezing rain north and west of Boston. High 37-44.

Sunday night: Showers changing to snow showers before ending by daybreak. Low 22-29.

Monday: Becoming partly to mostly sunny and colder. Temperatures hold steady or drop a bit during the day.
