BOSTON (CBS) — Unseasonably cold air arrived to start the week and we can expect wind gusts up to 55 mph in spots Monday.

The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the strong and potentially damaging wind gusts. The wind will be sustained between 20-30 mph throughout the day with the higher elevations like the Worcester Hills seeing the strongest of the gusts.

Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard will be the last to see the gusty conditions on Election Day. The Wind Advisory for the Islands lasts through 11 a.m. Tuesday

While it’s not a huge concern, some gusts may take down trees or power lines, leading to some scattered outages.

This cold, Canadian air mass coupled with the strong wind will make temperatures feel like the 20s, especially into the afternoon and evening.

If this cold weather isn’t your cup of (hot) tea, don’t worry. By the end of the week, highs will return to the middle 60s with some good sunshine.
