A weak system is bringing some flurries Saturday afternoon and another one Sunday that might be restricted more into northern New England with a few trying to reach parts of Massachusetts, a mix is possible.
Highs Saturday afternoon remain in the 20s, but if feels much colder. We woke up to subzero wind chills and as the hours have progressed we now look into upper teens.
The wind switches out of the NW, which allows us to warm up a bit more Sunday with highs climbing into the 30s to near 40 in the warmest spots south.
