    A strong storm that tracked north of us into Canada is now generating a return to colder and drier weather in New England.

    The temperature Saturday night warmed to near 60 degrees, with occasionally heavy rain and wind gusting from the south up to 45 mph.

    A cold front is now passing east of New England with colder and drier air along with clearing sky. By sunset Sunday the temperature is back down to the 30s north and 40s south, with a mostly clear sky. The wind will still be gusting past 30 mph from the west.

    Overnight, we can expect mostly clear skies with the temperature in the 20s north and 30s south, continuing to be breezy.

    The hills of Western New England may see some snow flurries, and snow showers may accumulate a few inches in the higher elevations of Vermont.

    Monday there will be a few flurries in the mountains, otherwise it's partly to mostly sunny. It will be a more seasonable day with high temperatures in the 40s south and 30s north. The wind will remain active from the west at 20 to 25 mph adding a chill to the fall air.

    Tuesday may start off cold, but with plenty of sunshine it will become windy from the southwest again pushing temperatures well into the 50s by the afternoon.

    Another front comes in on Wednesday, bringing with it clouds and a chance of showers. We are also tracking the storm at sea that may clip eastern New England with a cooler rain Wednesday afternoon.

    If everything goes well, our Wednesday weather is not too significant, and drying and seasonable weather comes in for Thanksgiving day. The call for Thanksgiving is for mostly sunny skies and a high temperature in the 30s to low 40s.

    Quiet weather should be here to start the weekend but another front may come in with rain and/or mountain snow showers later Saturday into Sunday with temperatures remaining seasonable in the 30s and 40s.
