Regional Weather Story
National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA
816 AM EST Wed Nov 21 2018

An arctic front will approach the region today from the northwest.
Ahead of the front temperatures will warm to 40 to 45 this
afternoon. However along and ahead of this arctic front isolated
snow squalls are likely, possibly beginning as rain showers. Given
these squalls are very narrow not every location will be impacted.
However be alert for a brief period of near white-out conditions,
slippery travel and gusty northwest winds.

Behind the front a frigid airmass overspreads the region tonight
into Thanksgiving with blustery northwest winds yielding bitterly
cold wind chills. At sunrise wind chills will range from zero to
minus 15!

Not as cold or windy Friday as high pressure builds over the area
with highs in the upper 20s to lower 30s. Dry weather lingers into
Saturday along with milder conditions as temperatures rise into the
40s! However temperatures likely fall to the freezing mark across
the interior Saturday night. With low pressure moving south of New
England rain will overspread the area Saturday night. However well
inland freezing rain/ice is possible.

The coastal low exits rapidly giving way to a drying trend Sunday
along with seasonable temperatures as highs climb into the upper 40s
to lower 50s. The weather pattern remains active with a chance of
rain Monday.
