With mostly sunny skies, expect a high around 50 today, with a west wind of 5-15 mph.
Tonight we are expecting something that looked like a relative longshot earlier in the week: accumulating snow. We had just shy of an inch of snow yesterday morning, but we are looking at a little more than that tonight. Expect a widespread 2 to 5 inches of snow for the Dracut area as well as all areas away from the immediate coastline, with 0 to 2 inches of snow near the coast. For most locations, rain will mix in at times, but snow will be more prevalent at the higher elevations in central and western Massachusetts, where the best chance for those amounts closer to 5″ exists.
Elsewhere, most towns will probably land around 2″ or 3″ of snow, including Dracut, with a few spots potentially hitting the 4″ mark. Most of the accumulating snow will likely be in the late overnight hours to around sunrise; there could be a very brief accumulation after sunrise but beyond that, the snow should start melting quickly, even though rain and snow will continue through mid-morning before becoming all rain. Note that the snow will be heavy and wet, which could make it difficult to shovel, but it should melt fairly quickly, so unless you need to get somewhere early Saturday morning you could probably just let it melt itself.
Rain will end by early afternoon Saturday, giving way to a high around 46, and perhaps some peeks of sunshine during the early evening. Saturday night will have decreasing clouds and a low around 33; Sunday is the pick of the weekend, with a high around 63 and mainly sunny skies.
Have a great day!
