Weather - Drizzle Fizzle


Drizzle Fizzle

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

A small mid-level low pressure trough scudding through the area will conspire with some seaboard moisture to produce widespread drizzle today. The colder temperatures save us from larger amounts of rain, but they mean that western parts of Massachusetts and higher elevations will have some snow mixed in with the rain.

The precipitation should be out of the way by nightfall to be replaced by partially clearing skies and slightly cooler temperatures. Wednesday will see winds up a notch or two and some sun.

Today: Overcast and drizzly. Maybe some small breaks in the clouds to the south. Light winds out of the north. High 48F (9C).

Tonight: Any drizzle ending. Some clearing. Low 34F (1C).

Wednesday: Partly to mostly cloudy. Winds from the northwest. Chance of snow to the north. High 45F (7C). Low 33F (1C).

Thursday: Partly cloudy and turning cooler. High in the low 40s (6C). Low about 30F (-1C).
