It will be mild and rainy throughout the day tomorrow, with up to an inch of precipitation expected to fall. The rain is likely to start a couple of hours after midnight tonight, and continue into the early morning on Sunday. Colder temperatures will return on Sunday and continue into the early part of next week, with a chance of rain or wet snow on Monday and Tuesday.

For most of the country, the last week has been exceptionally cold as a frigid Canadian air mass left many of the states between the Great Lakes and the Rockies with snow cover and a reminder that colder weather is approaching. The Great Lakes region could see some lake-effect snow today as Northwesterly winds blow cold air over the relatively warm lake water. The signs of winter will also be apparent in the Cambridge area as it is likely to snow in the early morning today and temperatures will dip below freezing tonight and tomorrow night. The highs this weekend aren’t likely to get much higher than 40°F, and the moderate Northwesterly winds will make it feel colder still. It’s time to get used to these temperatures, as next week doesn’t project to be much warmer.

A cold and rainy weekend is in store for the Boston/Cambridge area as a low pressure system rides Northward just off the coast. On Saturday and Sunday, temperatures will likely top out in the mid 40s (°F) and will likely drop below freezing on Sunday night. There is a very good chance of rain on Saturday, with up to half an inch possible, depending on the path the off-shore storm takes.

The warm weather of the past few days is likely to end overnight on Saturday as cold air is brought down behind a Low passing across the Eastern Canadian provinces. Today and Saturday are likely to have warm highs in the lower 70s (°F) before Sunday’s colder high in the lower to mid 50s (°F). There is a chance that Cambridge will see showers on Saturday afternoon, but nothing like the rainfall from yesterday.

There is a chance of rain this weekend as a Low in the Great Lakes region sweeps cold air in our direction. The most rain (up to 0.50 in) is likely to hit late in the evening Saturday and pass by Sunday morning, so don’t completely write off your outdoor weekend plans yet. Clear skies and a moderately warm day (mid/upper 60s °F) should follow the wet weather on Sunday. This kind of weather associated with the passing of fronts is likely to be the norm over the coming weeks.
