Cold, Snow, Ice, Warm, Wind, Rain, Cold

Confused by the title? Well, that's pretty much how this next 7day stretch goes.
Let's start with tonight. More cold weather is in store as overnight lows fall back into the single digits in the burbs and low to mid teens in the city. Add in the breeze, and wind chill factors run about 10 degrees colder than the actual air temperature.
Tomorrow, the wind won't be as strong, that makes it feel a bit better, and with highs running in the upper 20s to 30, overall, we have a pretty good Sunday on our hands.
Any sun fades quickly Monday behind thickening clouds, with light snow breaking out along a warm front late in the afternoon. Don't expect a ton of snow, but a general 1-3" falls late Monday afternoon, through the evening, producing slick roads, perhaps in time for the ride home from work. Southern Bristol, southern Plymouth and the Cape/Islands will be at the lower end of the snow range, if not under it, thanks to warming temps changing snow over to sleet and drizzle fairly quick.
The rest of us will see the change to sleet and freezing drizzle late in the evening, creating an icy glaze on top of the fresh inch or two of snow (close to the coast, snow goes to plain ole drizzle). As warm air finally wins the battle, that freezing drizzle turns to plain drizzle by the AM commute on Tuesday.
Tuesday is kind of a blah day. Nothing special, lots of clouds, temps in the upper 30s.
Wednesday will be windy and warmer, isolated passing shower, temps in the mid 50s. Steadier rain works in at night, before colder air ends the week.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
