BOSTON A bit of overnight snow ended in the wee hours of the morning. Skies will be bright and sunny today with cold temperatures. The dry weather continues for the first half of the week as cold Canadian high pressure builds into the region.
Later this week a new storm will move up the coastline and likely bring a heavy period of precipitation to much of the area. The exact track of this storm will ultimately determine the precipitation type. If the storm stays just off the coast of Cape Cod it could bring a significant snow event to parts of the area.
The Thursday morning commute will be the first commute of the week to be impacted by weather.
Behind the storm dry weather returns for the weekend with temperatures at more seasonable levels. A few small disturbances could bring some light rain or snow showers during this period.
Monday: Mostly sunny with highs in the upper 20s.
Monday night: Clear and quite cold. Low of 5 to 15.
Tuesday: Sunny and cold with highs only in the mid 20s. A cold wind chill brings temperatures below zero at times.
Wednesday: Sunny with a high of 24 to 30.
Wednesday night: Becoming cloudy with snow beginning before the morning commute. Lows in the upper teens to mid 20s.
Thursday: Snow and/or rain likely depending on the track of the storm. High of 32 to 39.
Thursday night: Precipitation ending. Lows in the upper 20s.
Friday: Partly sunny with a high near 35 to 40.
