Conditions are expected to remain blustery this Thanksgiving as high pressure builds from the west. The high pressure system will move offshore by the weekend, resulting in moderating temperatures and a few light rain or snow showers early next week, according to the National Weather Service.
Today should be sunny with chilly temperatures, with a daytime high of 33. A west wind will gust up to 40 miles per hour, making temperatures feel as if they were in the teens. If plans include venturing outside to burn off Thanksgiving calories, wear a couple of layers. The sky will remain mostly clear overnight. Temperatures will fall into the mid-20s, and winds will gusts near 20 miles per hour.
Sunny and cold conditions will continue Friday. Temperatures will crest the low 30s, but winds will be much weaker, with northwest gusts of only about 10 miles per hour. The sky will remain clear overnight, and temperatures will drop into the teens, according to the weather service.
Saturday will be partly sunny, with temperatures again settling in the low 30s. Clouds will develop through the day, and overnight temperatures will drop to about 20, according to the weather service. A few light snow showers are possible late Saturday or early Sunday.
Snow showers are likely early Sunday, but should taper off by 10 a.m. Rain showers will follow the snow for most of the day, as temperatures warm into the low 40s. Clouds will dominate through the day into the overnight hours, as temperatures fall into the mid-30s.
“Right now, it looks dry for Monday, but there is a risk for precipitation Tuesday,” said Kim Buttrick, weather service meteorologist. “It looks like it’s going to be rain for Boston on Tuesday, but there could be some mixed precipitation.”
