Early morning fog and patchy black ice has given way to a bright, breezy, and brisk start to the work week with temperatures hovering in the 30s with west-northwest wind gusts to 40 mph creating wind chill values in the 20s this afternoon.
Tonight brings a few more clouds and the colder air continues to infiltrate with lows in the teens south, 10s north. Tuesday, not as bright as Monday, as clouds stick around ahead of our next system for Wednesday.
Tuesday’s high temperatures reach into the lower 30s south, near 30 north with a few mountain flurries and along the Canadian border.
Our system for Wednesday will start as snow around midday for nearly all of New England before mix and rain moves north off the South Coast during the afternoon and evening, but not before plowable snow falls for the vast majority of us.
As far as accumulation, early estimates are at least a few inches around the immediate Boston area and over six inches from northern Massachusetts points north, with higher amounts expected in the higher terrain.
As the system exits predawn Thursday to the northeast, colder but dry air settles in to wrap up the work week with highs near 30 south, near 20 north with some lingering snow showers into early Thursday.
The upcoming weekend could bring a quick burst of flurries for northern New England Saturday, while Sunday brings more widespread rain showers advancing up from the southeast, yet again potentially mixed with snow the farther north one is.
