Today's Weather: It's Quite Cold And Dry Out — And It Will Stay Like That For A Bit

It will for sure be cold over the next several days.

Temperatures in southern New England will continue to fall below normal for this time of year, and we're actually going to be on the drier side of average, too. That's a good thing after all the rain we've had over the past month.

A cold flow of Arctic air from Canada remains in place. This will keep any storms well to the south. The storm track may bring snow to areas south of the Mason-Dixon line toward the weekend.

In New England, the only difference between each day's weather will be the actual high temperature. Readings will range between 30 and 40 degrees for the next week.

Saturday will be one of the coldest of those days, when temperatures will struggle to reach the 30-degree mark. Thursday will be one of the milder days, with a high near 40.

This pattern looks to continue into early next week, but we will have to keep an eye on the southern storm track. Eventually, milder and perhaps stormy weather may return to the region for the middle of the month. That would end any chances of a white Christmas.

Winds will be a factor ahead of an arctic front on Thursday and again Friday, as very cold air rushes into the region.
