A cold front will drop south across our region today ahead of
Canadian high pressure building over Northern New England. Ahead and
along this cold front will be the chance for rain. Temperatures will
top out this morning in the 40s before a wind shift out of the north
and northeast prevents further afternoon warming.
The cold front will stall just south of New England tonight. Then
there will be a lull in the precipitation as high pressure noses
south across our region. Under partly cloudy skies along and north
of the Mass Pike, temperatures will fall into the mid 20s to low
30s. South of the Mass Pike skies will remain mostly cloudy with
temperatures falling into the low and mid 30s.
The stalled cold front will begin to lift northward as a warm front
Sunday, which could result in a period of light rain for western
Massachusetts and western Connecticut, with pockets of freezing rain
at the onset. Elsewhere across the region, it will be dry except
cool easterly winds will keep a damp feel to the air. Temperatures
will warm into the upper 30s to mid 40s.
On Sunday night, light rain will become more likely for all of
Southern New England. But cold air draining into our interior
valleys could produce scattered freezing rain and sleet. Low
temperatures will range from the low 30s across the northwest, to
the upper 30s across the southeast.

of the Mass Pike and outside of I 495, otherwise periods of rain
