Sunshine prevails once again today as high pressure remains with us through tonight. Morning temperatures in the low to mid teens will recover to the upper 20s this afternoon. Winds may still be a bit brisk this morning but are expected to become lighter for the afternoon. Given the cold temperatures and gusty winds of late it will feel quite comfortable outdoors during the afternoon, although temperatures will remain below seasonal averages. A cold night is in store for us tonight, with clouds on the increase. Lows ranging from around 10 degrees inland to 15 on the shore. Winds will be light.
Another cold start on Monday, with early sunshine giving way to cloudy skies by midday. High pressure will be sliding offshore as a warm front approaches from our southwest. Ahead of the front we can expect light snow to begin around the mid to late afternoon and continue into the overnight. With warmer air streaking in at higher levels the precipitation most likely becomes a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain during the overnight. High temperatures on Monday will reach the low 30s and remain steady during the overnight hours. Winds remain on the light side. An inch or two of snow is possible.
The surface warm front moves through southern New England later on Tuesday. Precipitation changes to rain showers during the morning, although frozen precipitation may hold on until midday through the interior. Temperatures will rise into the low 40s for most of us. Overnight Tuesday will remain mostly cloudy and there is a chance of a few showers. Temperatures only fall into the upper 30s.
As the warm front lifts well north of us on Wednesday the sky cover should range from mostly cloudy to partly cloudy at times. There is still a chance of a shower or two. The big story will be the milder temperatures with highs climbing into the low 50s, or even higher.
A vigorous low pressures system will streak into southern Quebec during Wednesday and Wednesday night. The trailing cold front moves through here by Thursday morning and we will start to transition back to cooler temperatures. Showers will likely accompany the front Wednesday night, with a chance of the showers lingering into Thursday morning. Lows Wednesday night around 40 degrees, but highs only recover to the low or mid 40s Thursday.
Thursday night will see lows drop back into the 20s under a partly cloudy sky.
