A high pressure will briefly build into the Northeast today Today
will be mostly sunny with afternoon temperatures ranging in the 20s
across the region. Overnight lows will once again dip into the

Ahead of an approaching cold front will be snow showers across the
southeastern coast of New England. Highest accumulations will
stretch from western Rhode Island to Boston.
Tomorrow will be dry with clearing skies throughout the day. After
the front passes through tomorrow, winds behind the front will pick
up across the region. Westerly winds may gust between 30 to 35 MPH
tomorrow afternoon. Afternoon temperatures Saturday will range in
the low 30s for much of the area, with some sites reaching only the
upper 20s in the northwest corner of Massachusetts. Overnight lows
will dip even lower into the teens and even single digits inland.
Sunday will be dry as a Canadian high builds in from the north.
Afternoon highs will be similar to Saturday with temps ranging from
the upper 20s to low 30s. Overnight lows will be warmer as temps
remain in the 20s due to a southwesterly wind.
A warm front will sweep across the region late Sunday evening
returning near normal temperatures to the region after a very long
cold spell. Afternoon highs Monday will range in the mid to upper
30s, with the Cape and Islands reaching into the 40s.
