Cold air settles into New England today as high temps struggle to get out of the 20s. We've even had snow this morning across the Cape, with many towns picking up 1-3", although closer to 4" on Nantucket. With the exception of the outer Cape experiencing ocean effect snow showers through the rest of this morning, most of us see returning sun. That sun doesn't help us out too much in the temp department as highs struggle to clear the 20s.
We'll warm up for the weekend, but the warm-up is brief as temps start crashing back down Sunday night. If you're heading to Gillette, there will be quite a spread of temperatures throughout the day. Near 40 in the early afternoon, near 30 at kickoff and in the 20s by the end of the game. Factor in the breeze, and wind chill factors head to the teens.
That's just the tip of the iceberg as we go freezer cold by mid-week. Temps start near zero Wednesday morning, and stay in the teens during the afternoon. The cold has some staying power next week, lasting at least Monday-Thursday... making this brief weekend recovery temperature-wise see like a failed attempt at a warmer pattern. We'll take the nicer weather on the weekend though!
