A cold front trudging southeast across New England this morning delivered enough dry air to push raindrops out for most but not all.
The south coast and Cape Cod have seen returning rain, ending during the early afternoon as a quick burst of wet snowflakes. Elsewhere, temperatures have either slowly fallen or held steady today with lots of clouds giving way to increasing breaks of sun during the afternoon.
Clearing sky this evening will indicate new, dry, chilly air has arrived and overnight lows are expected to drop into the teens for many and 20s in urban centers of southern New England.

A winter chill will remain in the air Tuesday, with highs struggling to surpass the melting point and failing to make it in northern New England, even with abundant sunshine.
The weather pattern of oscillating temperatures will continue for the foreseeable future, meaning each shot of meaningful chill followed by a warm spike, then another cold shot.
Wednesday is a transition day back to warmth, with increasing clouds and night showers, mixed with snow in northern New England, lasting into Thursday morning. These showers represent a warm front, so Thursday’s temperatures should rise into the 50s — and perhaps even break 60 — in most of central and southern New England.
Friday will probably dawn warm before colder air begins a return that will, once again, hold high temperatures around the freezing mark to start the weekend. That said, this weekend looks to be a winner for winter sports, with the cool shot also likely to be a dry one.
