Forecast: Cold And Windy, But Sunny

A temperature roller coaster continues with more rapid changes in the coming days. Wednesday was of course cold to start, but ended up with a few hours of mild air in the afternoon. Some areas south of Boston saw temperatures well into the 50s.

On Thursday, we have a return of the sunshine, but temperatures are back to colder levels. Highs Thursday afternoon will only be in the upper 30s to around 40 degrees. Winds will make it feel a bit colder as well.

A warm front brings a shot of rain for Saturday along with milder air after a cold and cloudy day tomorrow.

Sunday is a similar day to Thursday with a mix of clouds and sunshine with highs around 40.

On Sunday night and Monday, a coastal storm will develop and bring a variety of precipitation to the area. It's still a big question whether we'll see snow, rain or nothing. All of these things are possible this early in the forecasting period and with the computer models not offering a clear choice as to the solution, I just have to say stay tuned to my latest forecasts and on Twitter.

Thursday: Sunny and a bit breezy, with a high near 40.

Thursday night: Partly cloudy with lows in the upper teens to lower 20s.

Friday: Lots of clouds, cold. Highs 34-38.

Saturday: Highs between 45-50.

Sunday: Partly sunny, with a high near 40.

Monday: Cloudy with a chance of rain or mix precipitation. Highs 35-40.
