A strong cold front will bring rain showers and gusty winds to Southern New England on Tuesday. The temperature will stay in the low to mid 30s with increasing clouds Monday night. Rain showers are possible from just before dawn until around noon as the cold front approaches. The temperature will spike to near 50° in the mid-afternoon before turning sharply colder at night. Northwest wind gusts over 40 mph are possible Tuesday afternoon and evening after the front passes.
Wednesday will be partly cloudy and unseasonably cold. The low temperature will be in the low to mid 20s, and highs will only be in the low to mid 30s with a gusty northwest breeze. The wind will diminish Wednesday night, and the temperature will fall to near 20 by dawn on Thursday.
It will be mostly sunny and cool on Thursday. Look for highs near 40. The temperature will dip into the 20s again Thursday night. An approaching storm system may bring rain and/or snow on Friday afternoon and night. At this point, accumulating snow is possible. The track of the storm will be very important because there will not be too much cold air in place. The best chance of accumulating snow is after sunset on Friday and before dawn on Saturday.
Looking ahead to the weekend, Saturday should become partly sunny with highs in the 40s. Another cold front will pass through with rain/snow showers possible early Sunday, followed by more unseasonably cold weather.
