The warm-up to near 60 degrees lasted just long enough to melt most of the snow in Southeastern New England. Rain showers moved out early Monday evening, and much colder air was on the doorstep as soon as the rain ended. A flash freeze and black ice were possible as the cold air charged in during the evening. The temperature will drop all the way into the low to mid teens by early Tuesday morning. The wind chill will be 0 to -10 Tuesday morning due to a 15-30 mph west wind.
It will not warm up much Tuesday afternoon. Look for mostly sunny skies, a gusty wind, and highs only in the mid to upper teens. Wind chills will be near 0. It will stay very cold Tuesday night. You can expect lows in the single digits to low teens under clear skies. Wind chills will be near 0 early Wednesday. Wednesday afternoon will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid 20s. It will stay chilly on Thursday, with highs near 32 under mostly sunny skies.
Clouds will gradually increase on Friday. It will be milder, with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s. The early outlook for the weekend is for rain Saturday into Saturday night. At this point, it looks like there will be steady rain Saturday evening for the Patriots vs Colts at Gillette Stadium. It should be mild, with highs Saturday in the upper 40s to low 50s. Sunday looks mostly cloudy with highs in the 40s.
