to warm as you can see on saturday. before that warm air gets here. during friday night and a period of snow is likely. not a major storm or anything resembling it. rating here in the upper midwest. that is going to start moving eastward that is going to reason ahead of the mold are air. we start out with sunshine tomorrow. still midday, early afternoon. then the clouds advance from west to east. we get to tomorrow evening around 7:00. the snow could be breaking out. not going to snow for more than an you are or two or throw at the most. as it moves to worcester county by 9:00 and the boston area by 11:00 then moves away. maybe additional shower. see the cloud break on saturday. that lice us to be mild. that little window of a couple of hours friday night. is possible this a coating to inch of snow could accumulate or maybe even a little bit more this ready no. that is going to pelt away even if that happens on saturday. obviously in the milder a ir. that takes care of tomorrow for you.
50 and sunday's going to be near 50 far hey during the daylight hourses a well. we have to keep a little eye on later sunday night and early monday. small little storm we might catch the northern edge of the precipitation as we start to early monday. it is pos will be could be a period of snow even a small chance of a small accumulation early on monday. then moves way. we turn a little bit colder then we turn our attention to the middle of next week. it looks complicated. i certainly don't have it all figured out yet. the idea is we are colder. the storm comes up the coast. if it stays offshore. we stay cold. then we get either snow or let. if the storm hugs the coast. more like rain or sleet listening the cast and mix over the interior. probably take awhile to sort that one out so there are several opportunities. a little bit of snow tomorrow night. some chance late sunday night early monday then the big question mark another middle of next week.
