Fair weather will remain over the region today as a storm system pulls away from the southern New England coast into the Gulf of Maine, and away from the area. This will allow high pressure to build into the area from the west, and a brisk westerly wind to kick up during the day on Monday. The high pressure area will remain in control of our weather through Tuesday.
A strong cold front will approach the area Tuesday night, and pass through the region most likely during the morning hours on Wednesday. Some light snow is possible with the passage of this feature, and in addition, a return to windy and much colder weather for the remainder of the work week.
