Southerly winds transported warmer air into New England on Friday and there was actually a little melting taking place despite the lack of sunshine. This warming trend will be short lived thanks to a cold front that is going to push through our region early Saturday morning. Once it goes by a strong northwest wind promises to advect colder air our way and this should prevent temperatures from rising much during the day even in the face of mostly sunny skies. The front is expected to stall just to our south with an area of low pressure forming on it. This scenario most likely will result in a cloudy day on Sunday along with a chance for a few snow showers as the low works its way through New England. By Monday the low will be east of us with a ridge of high pressure in its wake bringing more sunny and cold weather here for the beginning of the work week. Warmer air should return on Tuesday and all indications are pointing to a mild stretch of weather for the remainder of the week.
