Some rain, but no major storms next week – CBS Boston

BOSTON (CBS) – It’s one of the busiest travel times of the year, Thanksgiving. If you’re not flying to Grandma’s, you’re probably driving. Or maybe you have family and friends on the way next week. There are enough headaches at this time of year; busy airports, crowded grocery stores, you do not need other sources of stress. It would definitely be nice to breathe from that list, right?

I think I can be of service.

As of this writing, I do not see any major weather concerns next week. We have been waiting for a potential coastal storm early next week and it looks like we can pretty much put these concerns to bed. We are still forecasting some rain with a frontal passage on Monday, but it looks like a significant storm development will occur a bit too far east (out to sea).

Let’s break it down, day by day …

Monday:

New England- Morning showers provide room for partial sunshine in the afternoon. Temperatures are mild early in the day (50s) and drop rapidly in the afternoon. . . into the 30s at dusk. The wind also picks up in the afternoon and evening.

National- No major worries, some morning showers up and down the east coast, a few snow showers with sea effect in the Upper Midwest and somewhat late in the day approaching the northwestern Pacific.

Tuesday:

New England – Gusty and cold in New England. Higher struggles to get out of the 30s. . . northwest gusts 25-35 mph

National- Some scattered snow showers with sea effect in the state of New York and a mixture of rain and snow showers in the northwest Pacific down in the Rockies. Again, no major storm.

Wednesday:

New England- Must keep an eye on the storm spinning well to the east. It may try to throw some rain / snow back near New England’s coastline early Wednesday along with some gusts from the north. Otherwise, expect another dry and cool day with highlights in the low 40s.

National- Some rain and snow showers in the Rockies and a slight front that stretches from Michigan to Missouri bring some light rain showers to the Ohio Valley late in the day. Again, no major worries about the weather.

New England- Looks cool and dry, probably with heights in the 40s. . . wildcard remains how close the offshore storm system is – could be close enough to bring a gust of north wind and add an element of wind cooling to the day.

National- Seeing a few stormy areas now. First, a storm develops in the deep south, bringing some heavy rain to parts of Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. . . maybe even a little snow on the back in Kansas. Another storm pushes into the Pacific Northwest, bringing rain and snow to Washington State and Oregon.

Wherever you are heading next week, we wish you a safe journey and a happy holiday.
