The weather will be decent in Southern New England on Veterans Day. It looks seasonably cool with sunshine in the morning yielding to clouds late in the day. Highs will be near 50° after a morning low in the 30s. The weather action this week comes in a short burst Tuesday morning. A strong cold front will move through late Monday night or early Tuesday. There will be showers along and just after the front, and colder air will charge in as the wind shifts to the northwest. Rain showers may change to snow squalls before or during the Tuesday morning commute. The temperature will fall from the low 40s around midnight to the low to mid 30s by mid-morning Tuesday.
The potential exists for snow squalls that could limit visibility during the commute. Any snow accumulation would be limited based on the temperature and relatively warm ground. A dusting to an inch is possible in interior Southern New England. Tuesday afternoon will become partly cloudy, blustery and cold. The temperature may not recover to 40°, and it will feel colder because of a 15-35 mph northwest wind.
Tuesday night will be very cold for mid-November. The low temperature will be in the low to mid 20s, and wind chills will be in the teens. Skies will be mainly clear. The weather during the rest of the week will be quiet with a slow warming trend. Wednesday looks bright and chilly, with highs struggling to reach 40°. It will be breezy, but not as windy as Tuesday.
Thursday and Friday will both be mostly sunny with highs in the 40s on Thursday and low 50s on Friday. Overnight low temperatures will climb out of the 20s into the 30s. It will stay dry into next weekend. Highs will be in the 50s with partly sunny skies on Saturday.
