Cooler temperatures expected this weekend

Goodbye, Hurricane Sandy. Hello, snow?

National Weather Service forecasters say there is the possibility of a strong storm by the middle of next week. But it is not clear whether it will bring rain or snow to parts of southern New England.

The forecasters say there is “considerable uncertainty” on the track and timing of the storm several days out.

“Certainly, things could change,” meteorologist Rebecca Gould said Thursday night. “It will likely be rain for Boston, but there is the possibility of some snow in the Berkshires and Worcester hills Wednesday morning.”

It is also possible it will be just a rainstorm for everyone, the forecasters said Thursday night in a forecast discussion posted on the Web.

In good news for coastal residents, forecasters said the threat of coastal flooding appeared low due to very low tides.

Meanwhile, get ready for some chilly weather.

Cloudy skies are expected Friday. Temperatures will be in the mid-50s during the day and drop to as low as the low 30s in some areas at night, though it will be warmer along the coast, the weather service said.

Saturday will be partly sunny with highs in the low 50s during the day, according to the weather service. Some clouds will hover over the region Saturday night as overnight temperatures drop again to the 30s.

The clouds will be gone by Sunday, but the chilly air will stick around. Daytime temperatures will be near 50 and the mercury will dip to the 30s during the night, the weather service said.

Dry and chilly weather is expected to continue through Tuesday.
