With Thanksgiving plans dramatically scaled back due to continued COVID-19 concerns, many are looking to the weather for some help.
Here are three things to know about the forecast this week:
The Week Starts Warm & Wet
A slug of rain will move through Hingham on Monday, starting the week on a dreary note. The good news is that it will be mild, with temperatures during the day in the 60s.
The rain will wind down during the afternoon and early evening, followed soon after by a shift in the wind.
A gusty northwest wind will blow late in the day and into the night, allowing chillier air to seep in by Tuesday.
Expect daytime temperatures in the 40s Tuesday, although it will be bright and sunny.
Mild Again by Thanksgiving
After a one day cool-down on Tuesday, temperatures will again climb heading into the holiday.
Temperatures on Wednesday will be near 50 during the day, under mostly cloudy skies.
Another round of rain will likely arrive late Wednesday, lasting into at least part of Thanksgiving.
Right now rain showers are most likely during the morning and midday hours on Thanksgiving, with better odds of staying dry during the afternoon and evening.
Perhaps most importantly, high temperatures will likely be in the 50s to near 60 on the holiday itself.
That should be welcome news for families wishing to open doors and windows to increase ventilation inside the house.
No Signs of Cold
Even after Thanksgiving, there are no major signs of unseasonable cold on the way for New England. In fact, the days after Thanksgiving still look to feature above normal temperatures.
That should leave us with more 50s on Friday and Saturday, good news for small businesses around town hoping to safely attract holiday shoppers.
