For the first time this season Logan Airport registered a temp of 32 or below and many of the suburbs slipped into the 20s earlier this morning. Although we have unlimited sunshine today it isn’t very effective…highs will only manage the middle 40s.
High pressure, which is delivering this very cold air is strong and will gradually shift offshore through the middle of the week. As it does, winds will shift around from the north to the southeast pumping milder air back into New England along with moisture. The cold air currently present won’t go quietly and as the moisture arrives clouds will form and dominate at times both Tuesday and Wednesday.
A cold front will approach on Thursday with a band of warm rain…the rain will hold off until the afternoon but the temps will spike up to the middle 60s. Following the frontal passage, the air cools off again heading into the weekend.
