Skies cleared just before sunrise, allowing low temperatures in the single numbers and teens in far northern Maine to 20s to low 30s along the south coast.
As a storm moves out to sea away from New England Thursday, a cold front is coming in from Ontario with a few snow showers or a snow squall for parts of Vermont and western Massachusetts by sunset. Otherwise, it's not a bad Thursday! High temperatures will be close to 40 degrees in southern New England, cooler north.
It is an arctic cold front passing over New England Thursday night with a few snow showers or a snow squall. Then, much colder air works in on Friday. With mostly sunny skies, outside of a few mountain snow showers, the wind will pick up with temperatures will be topping out in the mid-30s by lunchtime and then falling back into the 20s for most of us by sunset.
It will be clear and very cold Friday night with low temperatures near 0 degrees at the Canadian border to 15 to 20 degrees along the south coast.
We have a sunny Saturday with a high temperature in the teens north and 20s south. There’s going to be a major winter storm this weekend over North Carolina, that moves out to sea Sunday night. It may try and clip the south coast or eastern New England with some clouds and potential snow Sunday night and Monday.
But odds right now favor it staying away. Another cold front from Canada comes in Tuesday afternoon, with a few snow showers in the mountains. It now looks colder here for Wednesday than it did before, with a high temperature near freezing.
A more substantial storm could bring a wintry mix by next Thursday night, tending to go over to rain by Friday. Until then, it's a relatively storm-free pattern for us the way it looks now.
