Temperatures started out in the teens this morning! We got down to 16 degrees tying the record low of 16 set in 1991. Readings will be climb into the 40s but now with mostly cloudy skies. A southerly flow will take hold, out ahead of an area of low pressure which is moving through the nations mid-section now. As this system draws closer clouds will thicken up overnight with drizzle and light scattered showers developing tomorrow morning. It will not be nearly as cold tonight so we're not concerned about any icing or frozen precipitation.
As this storm moves into central Canada it's cold front will slide across western Mass tomorrow evening and as it does a round of heavier rain will move through as well. The heaviest rain will fall from 6pm to midnight. This system will stay fairly progressive so the rain should be gone by Friday morning. Friday will be mostly sunny and breezy as colder air slowly drains in. Even still temperatures on Friday will reach into the low to mid 50s. It will turn colder as we head into the weekend with a secondary cold front sliding through Saturday night into Sunday. It could bring us a few rain or snow showers before it becomes windy and colder for Sunday and Monday. Temperatures on Monday will be hard pressed to make it out of the 30!
