Weather: My Chilly Valentine

My Chilly Valentine

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

Cold air will be ushered into our region in the wake of an intense storm moving away through the Maritimes. As this low departs, a slow-moving high pressure system will settle over the Northeast during Saturday and Sunday, bringing fair and much colder weather for the entire long weekend.

A gradual moderating trend will become evident by Tuesday, and a storm (most likely rain near the coast) will become a problem next week.

Today: Partly sunny and brisk with strong northwesterly winds. High 42F (5C)

Tonight: Clear and noticeably colder, with brisk breezes. Lows near 20F (-6 to -7C) by dawn.

Saturday: The cold embrace continues with chilly air and an icy breath of wind. In spite of bright sunshine, the highs will reach only about 34F (1C).

Saturday night: Cold and clear with diminishing winds. Low near 16F (-9C)in town and in low teens (-10 to -11C) in the suburbs.

Sunday outlook: Mostly sunny and cold, with highs about 36F (2C) and lows in low 20s (-4 to -6 C) by Monday morning.
