Cold, Snowy Week Ahead of Thanksgiving

A blend of sun and clouds on this Sunday across New England while snow chances return Sunday night for areas west and north of Boston.

Accumulations are expected to be light, anywhere from between a coating to an inch of snow, with higher amounts for the high terrain in western Massachusetts.

Highs Sunday were in the 30s, a lot cooler than Saturday.

Overnight temperatures drop into the teens and 20s north, with 20s and 30s south.

Monday starts with rain south of the Pike, where it will be warm enough for only rain, while a wintry mix and snow spreads east into parts of New Hampshire, Maine and even the Merrimack Valley. Most of it should be out of the area by the early afternoon hours.

Highs on Monday will be in the low 40s, but we drop into the 30s by Tuesday. The cold air in place will support round two of snow Tuesday morning, which is expected to impact the morning commute.

An area of low pressure will approach the region and could intensify as it gets close to New England, bringing breezy conditions and snow to Boston, where a dusting to an inch of snow is possible as the area of low pressure moves away.

A reinforcing shot of cold air arrives Tuesday night into Wednesday with some more snow showers. It looks fairly light, and shouldn’t significantly impact holiday travel.

Thanksgiving looks quite cold, with a chance to break or tie records, but bright. Expect highs in the teens and 20s.
