SLICK SPOTS MONDAY
We'll have to watch for a few waves of drizzle and freezing drizzle throughout the day. The greatest threat for icing will sit across towns in central MA, the Merrimack Valley, northern MA and southern NH. Even so, ice will not be widespread. Check the boston25weatherapp.com for the temp in your town... 32 or less and you'll have to travel cautiously!
Everything today looks light and spotty until we get to the evening commute. Some steadier showers may fall evening commute to dinnertime. We should tap into another lull for most of the overnight and early commute tomorrow.
It will continue to warm into the 50s Tuesday as heavy rain moves in after 10 AM and for the afternoon. Rainfall totals 1-1.5" may lead to localized flooding due to slow drainage during the Tuesday evening commute. I wouldn't be surprised if there was some thunder and lightning. Also, winds will gust 40-50 mph. Wind damage is possible, especially across eastern MA where they're forecasted to be the strongest. Rain will end Tuesday evening with colder air moving in for the rest of the week.
COLD COMES BACK
Dry weather with a mix of sun and clouds is expected for the rest of the work-week. Temperatures will feel more like January. Wednesday will still sport highs in the 40s. But Thursdays and Friday will start with singles and teens and only rise into the lower 30s. Back to freezing!
