Another week, another rainy nor’easter

The unsettled weather pattern of late is poised to advance Boston’s unusually wet autumn as yet another nor'easter races up the coast Friday night. Although it’s still too warm for snow, the fast moving low pressure system will bring a quick burst of about an inch of rain to open the weekend. This system, combined with another stronger system early next week, could bring an additional 2–4 inches of rain pushing Boston to near 5 inches above normal for the season. Elsewhere, these systems will also dump the first significant interior snows of the cool season in the northern U.S., continuing what has been a rather unsettled transition to winter. In between nor’easters, we can expect cool sunny days under high pressure with high temperatures in the 40s °F and low temperatures around freezing.
