A warm front will lift north of the region today ushering in a brief bout of milder temperatures by this afternoon, but another strong arctic cold front will approach on Sunday with blustery west winds and snow squalls possible, along with quickly falling temperatures. A very cold air mass is then expected to remain in place for much of the upcoming week with reinforcing shots of cold as several clipper systems move through.
