We were spoiled by several days of unseasonable warmth last week, but winter makes one last stand in its final days.
Cold & Windy Start to the Week
Strong northwest winds will blow through town on Monday, allowing cold air to drain in from Canada.
Temperatures during the morning will start off in the teens, and despite beautiful sunshine during the day, daytime highs will only reach the upper 20s to near 30! It will feel colder when you factor in the wind.
Slow Moderation Mid-Week
Tuesday morning will also start off cold, in the teens to around 20, before temperatures claw into the 30s to near 40 by afternoon.
Skies will still be bright, with plenty of sunshine.
Temperatures get closer to normal by Wednesday and Thursday. Each of those days will feature a few more clouds, and perhaps a quick passing shower, but temperatures will be closer to 50 degrees during the afternoon, after starting off in the 30s during the morning hours.
Watching a Storm Late Week
A storm will try to get close to Southern New England late week, but the latest indication is that most of the system will stay to our south. Still, a few rain showers, and perhaps even a couple snowflakes, may move through on Friday.
Either way, it looks like that system moves out by next weekend. By then temperatures will be back into the 40s, just in time for the first official day of spring on Saturday!
