• Frigid temperatures expected Saturday, flurries possible


    From Fox 25 Meteorologist Sarah Wroblewski:

    High pressure will rule our weather heading into the weekend. Mostly clear skies and light winds tonight will allow for temperatures to fall back into the teens, even single digits in spots. It will be a tad milder on the Cape with readings in the 20s. As light winds turn out of the north, colder air blowing over the relatively warmer ocean will scatter clouds over the Cape and a few of those clouds may even produce ocean effect snow showers. Only a slight dusting is expected at most.

    Saturday will start off cold with clouds on the Cape, but brighter skies elsewhere. Highs will once again be below normal for this time of year, only climbing into the upper 20s to mid-30s by the afternoon. As the day goes on, clouds will advance into the region from west to east ahead of an approaching cold front. This front will bring the risk of a few flurries or freezing drizzle Saturday night with temperatures in the 20s to low 30s.

    This front will get caught up in northern New England on Sunday providing a few snow showers to the north, but as temperatures warm into the 30s to mid-40s, southern New England will likely see any precipitation change to rain. Most of the day will be dry although mostly cloudy, with just the risk of a spot shower. So if you have plans to travel on Sunday, it will not be a washout, but be prepared to see a snow shower or two to the north.

    Temperatures will stay in the 40s as we head into next week, but we'll be watching a developing ocean storm. We'll have to watch the track and intensity of this storm, as current indications suggest it may just brush by the region with a few light showers early in the week. If it does move further west (closer to the coast), it could provide the area with some more significant rain/snow late Monday into Tuesday.
