initially there’s enough cold air out to the west is this works its way in. We’re getting some reports now of a little bit of mixed precipitation, some of it in the form of some rain, some of it in the form of some snow and even a little bit of freezing rain out there. And that freezing rain is one of the things I’m keeping an eye on because it means out there we could get a few icy spots. It’s not enough to bring down power lines of trees that that heavy, but it’s enough to make things a little slippery. Could be a little glaze out there, so be cautious about that. That’s why that winter weather advisory is out for the Berkshires and you could see the ice accumulation. Most of it’s probably gonna be north of the border, but still just a threat of it out there. So be careful. Later on tonight, early tomorrow morning by midnight, we’ve got the rain kind of pushing its way towards 4 95. But the temperatures are warming up and they continue to warm up. Is this Rain pushes its way in, so three o’clock in the morning seems pretty likely will have the rain going around. It will be with us at six o’clock in the morning. Look at that lower forties at that point. And then I think it’s the day goes on well, actually. Head for some partly cloudy skies late in the day, but the temperatures at that point we’ll be going back down so rain after midnight tonight. But warming conditions that mixed mainly out toward the Berkshires tomorrow. Temperature wise. Nice 44 to 48 but a little breezy in the wind department. Those early showers giving way to Cem. Partly cloudy skies. We head through the afternoon so that storm number one tonight Storm number two is way down to the Gulf of Mexico. But his number one leaves. It brings colder air in, which means when Number two comes in, it’s got a little more cold air to work with. So we got a little bit better. Opportunity had seen some snow before. We change over to some rain and mix because we’ve got that mild air surging its way up in. So as I look at a potential snowfall totals out of this, I think, really in Boston. It’s probably kind of a mix going to rain. You get out to a 4 95 I think we could probably get maybe an inch of sleet or snow. And then it changed over to mix that goes to raid and up to the north a little bit more of an opportunity for some snow. 123 So you get the idea. There isn’t a lot of moisture to work with, and there isn’t gonna be a lot of snow out of that one. But you could see also from our computer models the European and the US model. The GFS is kind of starting to lean. Maura, Maura toward the European. That’s why I’m putting that little bit more snow up to the north and west. But once again, we also have to contend with some ice out there. So here is the ice accumulation that could be out there on Saturday morning. Be careful. There could be a few slippery spots they’re developing out there in terms of timeline, nothing really going on during the day on Friday. It’s really after we get past midnight. We get the snow coming in here, but it quickly changes over to some rain by the time Saturday morning rolls around, and if you sleep in late on Saturday, you’ll probably miss out on most of it. So here’s where it breaks down there in the next seven days. Early showers. Tomorrow Friday. Nothing going on till Friday night into early Saturday morning, and then nothing going on on Sunday until we get to Sunday night late into Monday, all of these air happening at night. And so that’s why I think they’re gonna have minimal impact. But I have made them nuisance weather Days will clear it out for next Tuesday and Wednesday temperatures, though most of the next seven days, air hovering right around 40 degrees, which is actually a little bit mild for this time of year.
