High-pressure is building across southeastern Canada this morning, reinforcing cold
air along the surface of New England. Meanwhile, a storm system now over Illinois is
tracking northeastward into the Great Lakes. This storm will drag a warm front
northward, resulting in spotty showers of rain and sleet later this afternoon.
The cold air will be slow to retreat, resulting in some sleet mixing in with any rain
showers through this evening. However, temperatures will begin to rise before dawn
so no little or no impact is anticipated on paved surfaces.
The milder air will win out by Monday morning with a round of rain showers. Fog
and drizzle will linger Monday night, with a more substantial round of rainfall by
Tuesday afternoon as another storm center forms along the cold front, passing right
over southern New England Tuesday evening.
Colder and drier conditions return for Wednesday through Friday.
