An Early February Freeze

By Kevin R. Lang
EDITOR IN CHIEF -- A low pressure system is gaining strength in the Gulf of Maine as it heads to Newfoundland today. This low is sending cold northerly winds across Boston, and these winds will continue through the day. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny, with temperatures climbing into the 20s and 30s F (-6C to 0C), but the wind chill factor will still be strong.

Tuesday night and Wednesday will be cold and dry, with strong winds turning to the west to eventually diminish the wind chill. A low pressure system could hit the region by Thursday night, possibly bringing some precipitation.
