  • Week of Christmas expected to be sunny, brisk and cold

As the system exits the region Friday night, colder air will filter in, so we may see rain mix with and then change over to all light snow from the northwest to the southeast.

Preliminary snowfall projections indicate that up to 3-6 inches of snow could fall by Friday evening across northern MA along the New Hampshire and Vermont borders, with snowfall amounts falling off to the south and east. Locally we will see a small shower chance, breezy conditions and highs in the lower 60s along with mostly cloudy skies.

The arrival of cold weather this week breaks a streak of above-normal temperatures for December.

The next storm system will arrive during the late afternoon or evening hours with widespread snow.

"Abundant Gulf of Mexico moisture will surge northward and be lifted by a strong cold front and upper jet stream support", notes the NWS.

Continuing mild and mostly dry with outbreaks of rain later in the west and north in freshening southerly winds.

Staying mostly cloudy with temps dropping to 45° overnight.

While we don't anticipate any precipitation accumulation in Boston, there is a potential for a wintry mixture of precipitation from periods of light snow to freezing rain. "The good news is that Christmas time, we don't see any weather that will cause any grief", he said.

Sunday night - A chance of snow showers.
