Low pressure stretching from the Great Lakes to the St. Lawrence valley today
will help to begin the warming process, but it will also serve to create rather
gusty Southwest and Westerly winds around the region. Some of the strongest
winds will be along the south coast today, but in general most of the region
will experience 20-30mph wind gusts.
The winds relax overnight as a dry cold front slips through so that our Sunday
will be a little cooler, but still quite nice for mid-winter.
A potent storm will track into the Great Lakes on Monday, dragging a warm front
towards Southern New England. This will result in increasing clouds with some
showers developing. It's quite likely that low level cold air will be trapped in
northern MA and southern NH so there may be some icy conditions developing
Monday night and early Tuesday.
Expect milder temperatures on Tuesday with periods of heavy rain. Rainfall
amounts looks to be around an inch or more before ending which will then be
followed colder and drier weather returning for midweek.
