Low pressure will lift over New England this evening then head
northeast toward southern Quebec overnight. It will turn brisk and
cold behind an arctic front moving through the region. Widely
scattered snow squalls are possible tonight as low temperatures dip
down into the mid teens to mid 20s.
Arctic air settles across the region on Wednesday and Thursday with
a period of strong westerly winds and bitterly cold wind chills. Day
time highs will average in the 20s to low 30s, while lows Wednesday
night and Thursday night average in the teens. Meanwhile, low
pressure scooting offshore of the mid Atlantic states on Thursday,
may bring some scattered snow showers south of the Mass Pike to the
south coast and islands.
Looking to later in the week, another low may bring more snow to
coastal areas sometime Friday night into early Saturday. Dry
conditions will return by midday Saturday, but another quick moving
low may bring yet more light precipitation late Sunday into early
Monday, then should improve later on Monday.
