It will be windy and mild this afternoon under a changeable sky! Winds will gust over 40 mph from time to time, especially across the higher terrain. The strong winds may lead to scattered power outrages. In fact, A Wind Advisory remains in effect for all of southern New England including western Mass until 6 pm.
Winds will ease this evening as skies clear. It will be cool but not cold overnight with temperatures staying above freezing in most locations.
High pressure will settle in for tomorrow so skies will be sunny and winds will be lighter. It will be pleasant with temperatures reaching into the upper 40s. Readings will still average about 8 to 10 degrees above normal. (The normal high for this time of year is 38-40)
An area of low pressure will move our way for Thursday. Clouds will increase quickly Thursday morning followed by rain moving in during the afternoon.We could see about 1/2" to 1" of rain. Unlike this past storm, on the other side of this system colder more seasonable air will move in from Canada. The cold air will arrive for the weekend. Temperatures will be more December-like with highs in the 30s. The wind on Saturday will make it feel colder! It will be the coldest weather of the season so far.However, it doesn't look as though the cold temperatures will stick around for long. Another ridge with unusually mild air will build in for Christmas Week! This means will be back into the 50s for much of next week, including Christmas! So much for a white Christmas!
