A sharp front north of New England, combined with a strong high-pressure system to our south, is generating wind gusting past 35 mph in the hills overnight. The wind direction is from the south.
It's warmer weather, with temperatures actually rising overnight and near 50 degrees at the south coast by Wednesday morning.
That means, after the coldest morning of the season early Tuesday, it should be about 20 degrees warmer to start our Wednesday.
That front will cross from north to south with colder air gradually filtering back in during the afternoon, but it's a nice looking Wednesday.
After a few showers early across parts of northern New England, and a little bit of snow in the mountains, most of us have more sun than clouds with temperatures in the 50s south and 40s north.
The wind will not be as strong, from the southwest then northwest 15 to 20 mph.
High-pressure moves over New England for our Wednesday night with temperatures once again cooling back to the teens and 20s north, to 20s and 30s south.
Thursday starts off with sunshine, followed by another front arriving from the west. Clouds will return before the day is over with a high temperature in the 40s, and 30s in the hills, but it will generally be a nice day though.
That front is on us Friday with morning rain showers, or a couple of inches of snow in the mountains, followed by a partial clearing. High temperature will be in the 40s.
Saturday looks seasonable with a mixture of sun and clouds, and high temperatures in the 40s.
Our forecast becomes more challenging after that as there will be a storm forming at sea later Saturday and Sunday. Parts of the coastal region may get clipped by some rain and/or snow. But for most of New England, it looks like a dry Sunday with temperatures in the 40s south and 30s north.
Next week should start off dry and seasonable, but we may see some more action in the form of rain, and rain or snow in the mountains, by late Tuesday into the middle and later part of next week.
