As low pressure moves away from the New England coast today, a trailing upper level low will allow scattered rain and snow showers to continue into this afternoon. High pressure will return late tonight into Monday with drier weather through Tuesday. Yet another storm system looks to approach the region by mid-week with a round of significant mixed precipitation possible.
