There was a mid-December chill in the air on Saturday. Highs were only in the mid 40s with a gusty breeze. It will not be very cold Saturday night. Lows will be near 40° as a warm front approaches from the west. A few stray showers are possible late at night. Sunday looks partly cloudy and windy, with highs in the low to mid 50s. The breeze will kick up out of the west at 15-25 mph by midday. Once again, a brief, stray shower cannot be ruled out. The wind will stay active Sunday night as the temperature falls into the mid to upper 30s by early Monday morning.

There is some very chilly weather heading for Southern New England in the midweek. Rain showers and snow squalls are likely as the colder air rushes in Tuesday morning. If the precipitation is in the form of snow, then travel may be briefly affected by the snow and gusty winds. Accumulations of less than an inch are expected. The threat of snow squalls ends early Tuesday afternoon. The temperature will continue falling through the 30s into the 20s by midnight. The wind will gust over 30 mph, and wind chills will be in the teens Tuesday night.
