Subzero wind chill numbers are still in the forecast Monday night and Tuesday morning after a bitter cold Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Heading back to school Tuesday morning, our lows again dip to near or below zero. A gusty northwest wind will create “feels like” temperatures between -20 and -10 degrees.
Tuesday afternoon the wind relaxes and our highs will be a tad “warmer” in the mid to upper 20s.
Our next system moves in for Wednesday into Thursday. Milder air returns, with highs in the mid to upper 40s both days. There may be a brief period of a wintry mix Wednesday morning before we switch to heavy rain across southern New England.
During the afternoon, northern New England flips to a mix, then to rain. Snow hangs tough with the colder air across the Canadian border.
Colder air drains in for Thursday into Friday. The last bit of precipitation from the system Thursday will change to some snow across higher elevations.
Colder air returns for the start to our weekend. An arctic cold front brings that reinforced cold air in Friday into Saturday, with a light burst of snow. Highs will be in the mid-20s to low-30s next weekend.
Sunday night through possibly Tuesday, a coastal storm may form and move in. It's very uncertain at this time on the track and timing, as the forecast models disagree on many elements.
Temperatures stay seasonable for the start to next week, and then will cool down to the 20s toward mid-week.
