Colder Friday, rain and snow chances

Freezing rain can make getting anywhere on the roads treacherous

On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, a potentially heavier snowstorm is possible in much of New England, depending on the track of a possible coastal storm, followed by a wintry big chill next week with below-normal temperatures and strong winds.

The sun will rise at 7:53:07 a.m. today and will set at 5:05:05 p.m.

Saturday is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high near 69. Southeast wind 5 to 8 miles per hour.

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.

Friday - A chance of showers. Northeast wind around 5 miles per hour becoming west in the morning. Low about 37. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent.

Another system will try to spin up on Christmas morning, clipping New England with another round of precipitation.

The advisory, beginning in the wee hours of Friday morning and extending until 10 a.m. Saturday, calls for 2 to 4 inches of snow in Central and North Berkshire, 1 to 2 inches in South County, along with sleet and freezing rain, and up to 8 inches in the high-terrain ski country of Vermont and upstate NY. In particular, cold air at the surface is appearing more likely to persist into much of Saturday across the entire region. Our next chance of rain or snow moves in around the middle of next week which we'll continue to watch as the cold weather pattern continues. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 29.

However, snow and sleet are likely to mix in toward the end of the storm from near Allentown and Scranton, Pennsylvania, to Trenton, New Jersey; New York City; Hartford, Connecticut; Providence, Rhode Island; and Boston late Sunday night to Christmas morning. Sunday night should be mostly clear, with a low around 47.

Christmas Day: Sunny, with a high near 76.

Monday night - Mostly cloudy, with a low about 12.
