Forecast: Sunshine Returns But Cold Air Remains

After many areas saw the ground turn white for a few hours yesterday on the back of a strong nor'easter, today brings back the sunshine but continues with the cold air. Winds will be brisk this morning so if you are outside waiting for a bus or the T, bundle up. Wind chills will be running in the 20s at times with the wind.

Highs this afternoon will make it into the 40s — below average for this time in November. Clear moonlit skies come overnight tonight with lows just above or below the freezing mark. Wind won't be an issue tonight as it was last evening.

Milder air streams into the northeast for Tuesday and Wednesday. Each of these days looks great with Tuesday seeing sunshine and highs in the upper 50s. It will be even warmer on Wednesday as highs reach the mid 60s!

A cold front brings a round of showers on Thursday afternoon. This front may stall off the coast and act as a focal point for another nor'easter moving up the coastline on Friday. It appears it will be warm enough we don't have to worry about snow, but there could be more signficant rain with this system depending on the exact track.

Sunshine and cooler air returns for the start of the upcoming weekend.

Monday: Sunny with a gusty wind, especially this morning. Highs of 45 to 50.

Monday night: Mostly clear with a low of 31 to 36.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny with a high of 55 to 60.

Wednesday: Mild with a blend of clouds and sunshine. Highs in the mid-60s.

Thursday: Periods of rain late in the morning or early afternoon. Highs in the upper 50s.

Friday: Rain likely. Highs in the mid to upper 50s.
