First taste of winter in Boston

It’s time to break out the hats and gloves for the weather today and tomorrow. Yet another nor’easter will move in from the south tonight, this time bringing a chance of accumulating snow. Overnight, the snow will turn to rain as warm air moves in before a slight increase in temperatures for the weekend. Saturday and Sunday will feature sunny skies with highs in the mid 40s °F and dry weather — a welcome relief from Boston’s exceptionally wet fall. On the other side of the United States, wildfires continue to rage through California where over 100 people have gone missing and nearly 50 have been reported dead. Firefighters continue to battle the three separate blazes across the state, fueled by an anomalously dry year and windy conditions.

Today: Increasing clouds. High around 34 °F (1 °C). Light winds.
