BOSTON — The cold period of weather is going to continue through the weekend and into next week as a northwest flow of air keeps the region in the deep freeze through Wednesday.
The big storm that potentially threatened the area will stay far enough off our coast to only bring clouds and a chance of a few flurries or snow shower Sunday afternoon and evening. Some of you may not even see a flake.
Even colder air will filter into the region behind the storm. Temperatures will average nearly 10 degrees below normal Monday and Tuesday. Late next week, another storm threatens the area with rain or snow. The timing of this system will be important as Friday begins school vacation week for many.
Friday: Mostly sunny with a cold breeze making it feel even colder. Highs 27-31.
Friday night: Mostly clear and very cold. Lows 0-10 and 15 on Nantucket.
Saturday: Sunshine to start the day with clouds to finish. Highs in the upper 20s.
Saturday night: Lots of clouds, but dry. Lows in the teens.
Sunday: Cloudy with a slight chance of afternoon flurries or snow showers. Highs in the upper 20s.
Sunday night: Any snow showers end, followed by clearing by morning. Lows 12-17.
Monday: Mostly sunny and cold. Highs in the mid to upper 20s.
