Today's Weather: Mild, Followed By Some Rain

It certainly was a cold start to the weekend but by the time we got to Sunday, temperatures had rebounded above seasonal averages. A dry cold front passes through today with a slight drop in temperature, but no precipitation.

It will remain dry overnight and for the morning commute Tuesday. During the day, our next storm system approaches and will bring a brief bit of wintry weather over parts of northern Massachusetts, with a coating to maybe an inch of snow.

To the south, it will be too warm — even with the onset of the precipitation — for anything other than rain.

Once the rain arrives, it will continue through the afternoon. The Tuesday evening commute looks wet, so you should plan on things being a bit slower. Temperatures will remain generally mild in the lower 40s.

Colder air arrives later Wednesday, and it looks as though we'll have a couple of below-average days for Thursday and Friday.

As we head to the weekend, a moderating trend takes place. Temperatures will get into the 40s by the end of the weekend. Generally tranquil weather continues the rest of the month, although there are a few leading indicators that we may turn colder for the start of March, but let's wait and see as we get closer.
