Forecast: Sunny With Highs In Lower 30s

A very cold start to the morning will be followed by the coldest day so far this fall. High pressure is building in from Canada, the same system bringing the cold and almost unprecedented lake-effect snow to areas along Lake Erie.

Sunshine will be prevalent all day, but won't do much to warm the ground and air. A weak system will cross the region overnight with some clouds and a slim chance of a shower of snow or rain on the Cape and the Islands. Most areas will stay dry.

Tomorrow is a bit milder with a southwest flow of air, but it won’t last. Cold air moves in for Friday and Saturday with brisk conditions and temperatures well below seasonal average.

On Sunday, the jet stream will lift north, and milder air will stream into New England. If you're headed to the Patriots game, expect temperatures to be in the lower 50s at kickoff.

Some shower activity will move in for Sunday night and early Monday, but it will remain very mild. Highs on Monday reach the 60s, so if the ground is still frozen this weekend, it will thaw.

A period of rain may linger into Monday night. We'll see a slow cool-down into Thanksgiving, which currently appears to be dry and seasonable.

Wednesday: Sunny with winds still brisk. Highs 30 to 35.

Wednesday night: Slight chance of snow showers late at night. Lows in the 20s.

Thursday: Mostly sunny. Not as cold, but still breezy. Clouds may linger. Highs 40 to 45.

Friday: Sunny, highs in the upper 30s.

Saturday: Sunny, with highs 35 to 39.

Sunday: Clouds and breaks of sunshine. Highs in the lower 50s.
