A ridge of high pressure moved over New England Monday wiping out those obnoxious northwesterly winds. The high is going to move east of us on Tuesday setting up a southwesterly flow and allowing for a slight warming trend. The trade off is we probably won't see much in the way of sunshine. An area of low pressure will be headed up the coast Tuesday night bringing a surge of moisture that should reach us shortly after 7 PM. The precipitation most likely will start out as light snow with rain or sleet along the coast. The low is expected to be located over New Jersey by Wednesday morning and a track this far west will result in strong southerly winds in New England and rising temperatures. This will change any snow or sleet over to rain Tuesday night with the rain continuing on Wednesday. This is looking like a heavy rain event with 2-3 inches possible before it winds down Wednesday night. Temperatures on Wednesday should climb into the 50s but this warming will be short lived as much colder air can be expected for Thanksgiving. The day will feature a mix of sunshine and clouds along with a gusty northwest wind. Fair but cold weather is in the cards for Friday and Saturday.
