Mainly dry weekend; mix Sunday night

Snow and rain showers ended early Saturday, and the temperature will climb to near 40 by midday. Skies will be partly cloudy to mostly sunny. There will be a 10-15 mph northwest breeze. The wind will diminish Saturday night, and the temperature will drop into the 20s in the cities, and into the teens in the countryside by dawn Sunday.

Sunday will begin with mainly clear skies, but clouds will roll in during the afternoon. They’ll be high, thin clouds, but enough to dim the sunshine at this time of the year. It will be a chilly day, with highs in the low to mid 30s. There will not be much of a breeze.

A storm will move out of the Southeast into the Mid-Atlantic by late Sunday. A wintry mix will develop in most of Southern New England late Sunday night. The best chance of seeing rain or sleet is near the coast because of a developing onshore wind. Farther inland, it will likely be snow or sleet at the start before gradually changing to sleet then rain. Precipitation will probably break out around midnight and could be steady late at night. There is the chance of a slow and sloppy Monday morning commute, especially away from the coast. The storm has the potential to bring accumulating snow before the change to sleet and rain.

Monday looks raw and rainy, with the bulk of the rain coming in the morning. Highs will range from the mid 30s inland to the low 40s near the coast. Clouds and stray rain or snow showers may linger near the coast on Tuesday, but the overall trend will be for cold and dry weather to settle in for the mid to late workweek. Highs will only be in the 30s Tuesday and Wednesday, and it may not get to 32° on Thursday afternoon. There will be a north-northwesterly breeze and partly cloudy skies during the day. It will be mainly clear and cold at night.
