1-1-2019

Good very early morning and Happy New Year 2019!!! Rain continues overnight, with temperatures bottoming out now in the mid 30s and rising to the 40s overnight. While it’s all rain now, the near half-inch of snow that fell earlier this evening – well, technically the snow that fell last year – still remains on grassy surfaces, and more importantly, still remains on roads. A slushy and slick mess will remain on the roads for the first few hours of 2019, as rain makes its way into the snow (and the sleet that fell during the transition to rain). Be very careful if out on the roads tonight! New Year’s plus slick roads is not a good combination, so if you need to travel, be ultra cautious.

The heavy rain overnight will end predawn, giving way to decreasing clouds for this first day of 2019. The high will be 52, and a high wind warning is in effect from 8 AM to 3 PM as winds will be southwest at 10 to 25 mph, with gusts up to 55 mph possible as winds shift to the west midday. Winds continue to shift to the northwest going into tomorrow morning, with a low of 17 and a northwest wind of 5-15 mph, gusting up to 20 mph.

Wednesday will be mostly sunny and 31, with a northwest wind at around 5 mph. Light northwest winds prevail Wednesday night, with partly cloudy skies and a low near 20; light snow is possible late that night into Thursday mid-morning.

Any snow will give way to mostly sunny skies and a high near 35 Thursday, before increasing clouds take hold Thursday night with a low near 25. Friday will feature skies turning cloudy, a high near 43, and a chance of afternoon rain. Rain is possible Friday night, getting to near 35 degrees, before morning rain is possible Saturday, giving way to mostly cloudy skies and a high near 43.

8-4-2018 Morning Forecast

[9:40 AM 8-4-2018]
Good morning!
 
I go to make this post. As I do so, a storm along the Mass/CT border receives a Tornado Warning that includes a lot of the towns south of Worcester. That is indicative of today’s weather hazards: cloudy, showers and thunderstorms likely at numerous times today from now into the early evening hours. Some could be strong to severe with damaging winds and an isolated tornado possible, but by far the main hazard today will be heavy rain with some flooding possible. The high will be around 80, with a south wind otherwise at 5-10 mph.
 
I’ll have updates on my Facebook and on Twitter @DracutWeather as needed.
