Forecast: Mild Monday Ahead

A very mild overnight means we will enjoy one more mild day today in spite of the fact colder air is spilling into the region. A cold front crossing southern New England will put an end to the two days of mild air and bring back the winter air for Tuesday.

Temperatures will reach their highs around or just after noon today and then fall back into the 30s by sunset. Eventually tomorrow morning all areas will be in the teens and 20s for a very chilly morning.

Dry roads mean no problems with icy conditions today or tomorrow.

Changes in the weather are going to be rapid this week. Tomorrow night warmer air will begin to flow north and this will bring a chance of some wintry precipitation inland late at night. Along the coast I am not expecting any issue, but there could be some slick spots for the commute Wednesday morning if you are coming in from the north or west to Boston. If there was any frozen precipitation it won’t last long as milder air pushes temperatures back into the 50s.

Thursday is a seasonable day with highs in the 40s. The weekend could be unsettled depending on how a potential storm unfolds. There are many possible scenarios from rain to snow and everything in between. I’ll have much more in the coming days.

Monday: A blend of clouds and sunshine with a brief, late-morning sprinkle. Highs of 47 to 53.

Monday night: Partly cloudy with a low of 17 in the colder spots to 25 in Boston.

Tuesday: Cold with sunshine giving way to clouds. Highs in the mid 30s.

Wednesday: Showers likely in the morning then some sunshine breaking through the clouds.

Thursday: Mostly sunny and seasonable. Highs in the mid 40s.

Friday: Mostly sunny and chilly. Highs in the mid to upper 30s.
