Stubborn clouds and cool conditions dominated the weather scene in most of Southeastern New England on Thursday. The clouds will break up on Friday, but it will stay relatively cool, with highs in the mid to upper 40s. There will not be too much change in the weather this weekend as an area of high pressure moves from the Great Lakes to the Northeast. Highs will be in the upper 40s to low 50s with mostly sunny skies both Saturday and Sunday. Low temperatures will be in the upper 20s to low 30s.
The Leonid meteor shower this year will have two peaks: Saturday night and Tuesday night. The weather looks decent for Saturday night. It will be chilly, but skies should be clear. There are expected to be at least 10-15 meteors per hour.
It looks less likely that an ocean storm will have an impact in Southern New England early next week. It’s still a little early to say that the storm will definitely miss us, but the trend has been for it to be further out to sea than originally projected. If the storm stays away, we’ll have some fine, seasonable weather right through Thanksgiving. Highs will be in the low 50s, and lows will be in the 30s with mainly clear to partly cloudy skies. Basically, it’s a case of WYSIWYG: What You See Is What You Get.
This long stretch of cool, dry weather means that the ski resorts can continue making snow. Check out some of the pictures from earlier Thursday as the snow guns were roaring at many Northern New England mountains.
The Climate Prediction Center released its updated winter outlook today. According to the CPC, there are equal chances of warmer/colder and wetter/drier than normal weather in the Northeast.
