It will be clear and cold Saturday night. The wind will diminish to less than 10 mph, and the temperature at dawn Sunday will range from 15-20° in the countryside to the low to mid 20s in the cities and near the coast. After a sunny start, clouds will increase during the day on Sunday. Highs will be in the mid 30s. The wind will be light out of the east-northeast.
Clouds will thicken Sunday evening, and snow may break out by midnight, especially in CT and at the coast of RI. A wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain is in the forecast for late Sunday night and early Monday morning. The snow will change to sleet and then rain from south to north. There will not be much snow accumulation before the change to sleet and rain. An inch or two is possible inland, with less than an inch near the coast.
The Monday morning commute may be slower than normal as the snow/sleet change to rain and temperatures climb into the low to mid 30s. Chilly rain is likely during the day. The temperature will range from the mid 30s inland to low 40s near the coast. Rain will end late Monday afternoon. It will be dry Monday night with the temperature falling into the 20s by dawn Tuesday.
A disturbance will scoot south of Southern New England on Tuesday. It looks like it will be just far enough offshore that the precipitation will not reach the coast. The forecast is for partly cloudy skies with highs in the 30s. It will be cold and dry in the middle of next week. Highs will be in the upper 20s to low 30s Tuesday and Wednesday. Lows will be in the teens to 20s. Skies will be mainly clear to partly cloudy.
