Today's Weather: Following Crisp, Sunny Weekend, Monday Brings More Sunshine

It was a beautiful weekend with plenty of sunshine and pleasantly cool temperatures. Today is an extension of that lovely weekend weather, with more sunshine and readings in the lower 50s.

There is a frontal system which will be nearing the area tonight and Tuesday, and it will pass offshore. Skies will turn cloudier and a few showers will head our way, especially late tonight and for the first half of Tuesday.

Sunshine and cool temperatures return Wednesday. A much stronger cold front — the strongest of the entire fall, so far — will push eastward on Thursday and Friday. This will bring about the coldest air we've seen this autumn and the season's first forecast with snowflakes.

Showers on Thursday will end as a few snow showers at night. There's always the possibility the ground becomes coated in white, especially north and west of Route 495 and into areas of northern New England.

If a wave of low pressure develops on the front, there actually could be a more notable snow Thursday night and Friday. I'll keep you updated on this with more information Tuesday. No matter what, this will lead to very chilly days Friday and Saturday.

I expect temperatures to stay under 40 degrees for most of us both of those days. Since it's still outdoor game season, you're definitely going to have to bundle up this weekend. There will be a moderation in temperatures by Sunday after a cold morning.
