    Monday: Increasing clouds. Highs in the teens and 20s. Monday night: Partly to mostly cloudy. Lows in the single digits and teens. Tuesday: Mainly cloudy. Rain develops south, some snow north. Highs in the 30s and 40s. (Published Monday, Jan. 9, 2017)

    An area of high pressure centered over the Carolinas builds into the region on Monday. This system brought sub-zero wind chills and temperatures across interior southern New England earlier this morning.

    We should expect increasing clouds with highs only maxing into the 20s. Tonight will feature decreasing clouds and lows in the teens.

    The next system approaches our region from the Great Lakes tomorrow as high pressure shifts offshore, bringing with it an increasing chance of rain as the day progresses. Temperatures will be cold enough for snow across the north while temperatures south will remain above freezing, though precipitation may begin as snow at the onset along the Providence-Boston Corridor. Highs will reach into the low 30s north and mid 40s south.

    Steady rain moves in overnight Tuesday and continues through Wednesday morning. A cold front pushes across the region on Wednesday, ushering in clearing skies and highs in the mid 40s, low 50s along the coast.

    Another low pressure system approaches New England on Thursday with showers, and an even warmer air mass streams into the region with highs expected in the upper 40s north and low 50s south.

    An arctic cold front moves through on Friday. We s hould see highs occurring during the first half of the day before the cold front moves through, ranging from the low 50s south to low 30s north. Seasonable cold weather returns for the weekend with mostly sunny weather on Saturday with highs in the 30s. We’re keeping an eye on the possibility of some snow Saturday night into Sunday morning as a system moves into the region from the Great Lakes.
