    We were close to record cold high temperatures today in Boston and in Hartford. Worcester may stay below the record cold maximum through tonight. Regardless of if we hit a record, we were downright frigid for May!

    Temperatures ran 15-25 degrees below normal this afternoon, and our temperatures stay nearly steady overnight as lows will be around 40 degrees. The clouds, drizzle and spotty showers continue to stay in the forecast overnight, with a chance for a wintry mix in the mountains.

    Drier air gradually returns for Wednesday and that means some breaks in the clouds by later afternoon.

    If we do see some sun, we will warm to the 50s and low 60s. Right on cue as we dry off, another wave of low pressure moves through New England Wednesday night through Thursday, bringing scattered showers.

    If our easterly wind remains through Friday, we could have another cool day as on system exits and another low pressure system approaches. The shower chances decrease for this weekend, with highs nearing 70 both days. It will be warm inland, and cooler on the coast thanks to sea breezes developing.

    Our jet stream will amplify by the weekend, and New England will be just south of the airstream, so warmer temperatures will gradually move in for the start to next week. We can't quite shake the unsettled pattern with repeat rain chances every 24-36 hours, but the warmer temperatures will be a small victory.
