The nuisance storm that brought widespread light snow and mixed precipitation to Southern New England was moving away from the United States late Tuesday evening. With snow/rain ending after midnight, and temperatures falling below freezing by dawn, there will likely be some icy spots on any untreated surfaces early Wednesday morning. The temperature will be coldest inland.
A dry and very chilly stretch of weather is ahead for the next few days in Southern New England. Wednesday afternoon looks partly cloudy and brisk, with highs near 40 degrees. It will be even cooler on Thursday, with the high temperature struggling to reach 40 in many places under partly sunny skies. Friday should be the coldest of the week, and season so far, with highs only in the mid 30s with blue skies. A westerly breeze will keep the wind chills in the 20s!
The cold weather will hang around into the weekend, as the high may only reach the low 40s on Saturday. A weak disturbance could trigger a few rain/snow showers. It looks milder Sunday into early next week, with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s.
