It will stay cold on Saturday, with lows in the teens to low 20s again, and highs in the low to mid 30s. Skies will be partly cloudy with a light wind shifting from north to east-southeast by late in the day. It will not be as cold Saturday night. Lows will be in the mid to upper 20s Sunday morning. A few flurries or light rain showers are possible late at night.

Sunday looks mostly cloudy with possible light rain or snow showers. There is a better chance of rain showers than snow showers, and even if the precipitation is snow, it should be mild enough to prevent any accumulation. Highs will in the upper 30s inland, and in the low 40s near the coast.

Monday will be partly to mostly cloudy and cool, with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s. A storm will develop in the Atlantic Ocean by Monday night, and it may come close enough to bring rain and/or snow to Southern New England. The precipitation type and intensity is uncertain. The best chance for steady precipitation is in Eastern MA, but the colder air will likely be found inland. The potential exists for a light accumulating snow, but it also may be a bit too warm for that to happen. Right now, the timeframe looks like Monday night through Tuesday. We’ll keep you posted.
