Boston Weather: 45.0°F | Overcast
Article Tools

Chilly temperatures will maintain their grip on New England. Over the past few days, highs only reached the lower 30s°F which is about 10°F below normal for late Autumn. In fact, current trends show that it will get even colder over the region, with lows near 15°F by mid-week!

Despite such cold weather, no precipitation looks imminent as dry weather filters down from Canada. A stationary low pressure over eastern Canada will be responsible for the breezy conditions this week. Although this storm seems close, moisture from this system will be blocked by a trough that remains fixed over the eastern Appalachians. As a result, heavy snowfall continues over upstate New York into northern Maine, where current totals range from 5-10 inches. We don’t have to contend with heavy snow this week. The cold, blustery wind should be the only concern for the next few days.
