For today it will be mainly dry except for a few sprinkles or
flurries under cloudy skies.  Expect chilly temperatures with highs
ranging in the 30s.

Low pressure from the Great Lakes area will head east toward our
region tonight. Out ahead of it, a wintry mix of snow and freezing
rain will overspread interior sections toward morning, with plain
rain elsewhere. Temperatures Tuesday morning will range from the low
20s across far northwest Massachusetts to the low and mid 30s across
the south coast.

On Tuesday, as the low heads east across northern New England,
precipitation will continue during the morning through the early
afternoon hours, however, with temperatures warming into the mid 30s
to mid 40s, any mixed wintry precipitation will change to plain rain.

On Tuesday night it will turn brisk and cold with lows dipping down
into the mid teens to mid 20s.

A shot of arctic air follows 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 will average in the teens.

Looking to later in the week, another low pressure system from the
west may bring more snow to the region sometime Thursday night into
Friday.  Then looking to the weekend, fair weather promises to
be on tap with moderating temperatures.
