Today’s chilly weather comes courtesy of a high-pressure dome cresting over New England.
High pressure brings fair weather — and we’re enjoying splendid sunshine mixed with some wispy, high-altitude cirrus clouds as a result — with a light wind that will mean virtually no wind chill factor this afternoon and evening after a fresh morning breeze.
As milder air moves in aloft, variable clouds will traverse the sky overnight with lows dipping into the 20s, teens north. Clouds are likely to be variable but generally increase on Wednesday as incoming warmth transports increasing moisture as well, and a sprinkle can’t be ruled out as temperatures rise well into the 40s.

By Thursday, a mild southwest wind will deliver high temperatures in the 50s as far north as central New England with a shower or two possible from time to time, but not a wet day overall.
Warmth should linger into Friday morning before a passing cold front delivers showers and falling temperatures during the day, leading to another shot of cold and dry air to start the weekend on Saturday.
As mild air tries to return quickly on Sunday, clouds will increase again and a low chance of some rain or snow showers exists with another stretch of milder days for part of next week in the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
