We’ve got a busy start to the week, then things get rather simple as we head into the middle and end of the upcoming week.
We start off with a blustery and chilly day in the wake of a strong cold front that moved through overnight. Gusty west to northwest winds will usher some chilly air back into the region, similar to what we had on Saturday. There will be some sunshine, but also a decent amount of cloudiness. The clouds will become more widespread at night as winds die down, thanks to an approaching Alberta Clipper. This will move through early Tuesday morning, bringing in some snow or rain showers, maybe even a few squalls. We’re not expecting much, if any, accumulation for most of us, but any squalls could whiten the ground and possibly drop up to half an inch of snow. These will be most likely north of Route 2, especially in the Worcester Hills and the Monadnocks of southwestern New Hampshire. Once that system moves through, skies will clear out, but we’ll have another blustery and chilly afternoon on Tuesday.
Conditions become more tranquil on Wednesday as high pressure builds in with sunshine, lighter winds, and moderating temperatures. After that, the high moves offshore and remains there for the rest of the week and into the weekend. The result is generally fair weather with above normal temperatures. Some places could even make a run at 70 by next weekend.
