With the start of December this week, more and more people are looking for signs of winter. You won’t find many, at least to start the month.
Here are three things to know about this week’s weather in Hingham.
Warm & Windy Start to the Week
Get your errands done early on Monday, because things will be turning stormy during the afternoon.
A slug of heavy rain will move up from the south during the day, lasting into Monday night.
Because this storm is coming from the south, it also comes loaded with warm air.
Temperatures will surge to near 60 degrees, pushed upward by strong southerly winds.
In fact, during the afternoon and evening as heavy bands of rain come through, gusts may get close to, or exceed, 50 MPH in Hingham.
Make sure your outdoor Christmas decorations are secured, and charge up your devices just in case the power goes out for a time.
The heaviest rain will be gone by Tuesday morning, but we’ll be left with a few spot showers here or there. Temperatures will be in the 60s during the morning, but then as the storm pulls away and we begin to dry out, cooler air will flow in from the west and temperatures will drop.
Bright and Seasonable Mid-Week
After the warm and stormy start to the week, we’ll enjoy lots of sunshine Wednesday and Thursday.
A cool breeze on Wednesday will drop temperatures back down into the 40s for daytime highs, which is closer to where we should be for this time of year.
We’ll stay in the 40s on Thursday, as well.
No Signs of Big Cold
By Friday a few more clouds will enter the picture, but temperatures will tick back up closer to 50 degrees during the day.
Saturday also looks to feature temperatures near the 50 degree mark, although a storm running up the coastline will increase the odds of some showers to start the weekend.
The bottom line is that even by the end of the first week of December, there are no signs of sustained cold on the South Shore.
