Gusty northwest winds were bringing some cold and dry air into New England on Saturday afternoon. The temperature will tumble into the mid to upper 20s by early Sunday morning. The wind chill will be in the 20s Saturday evening, so bundle up if you’re heading out. Sunday looks partly cloudy, breezy and chilly, with highs near 40. Dry, cool weather stays around on Monday, with lows in the 20s and highs in the low to mid 40s.
A fast-moving storm system will travel from Texas to the Mid-Atlantic by midday Tuesday. The storm should cut to the south of New England, keeping colder air in place, and allowing for some flakes to fly in most places. It does not look like a whopper of a storm, but there should be enough snow between Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night to allow for some plowing and shoveling in parts of Southern New England. The progressive nature of the storm will limit the window of accumulating snow to about 10-15 hours, and the storm will be quickly moving away from New England by early Wednesday morning. There is a first-look accumulation map for Right Weather Pro subscribers. The rest of the workweek looks cool and dry in the Northeast.
