After a tantalizing glimpse of spring last weekend, cold weather returned to New England. Expect it to warm up into the high 40s Wednesday through Friday, then rain and snow again over the weekend. Unfortunately, the 10-day model runs do not make next week look any more promising, so try to get some sun before it cools down again!

Last weekend, areas just outside of Boston received as much as a foot of snow. Since then, temperatures have remained below freezing, allowing plowed snow to accumulate in snowbanks and along roadsides. This week, much of that snow should melt. This afternoon and tonight Cambridge will experience one more snowstorm — the same one that has already caused thundersnow and ice throughout the Midwest. However, tomorrow the temperatures will rise into the 40s and remain above freezing for the rest of the week, with rain showers on Wednesday afternoon and Friday.

If you have been reading weather articles this week, you might have seen some alarming possibilities for a major Nor’easter this Sunday. Two low pressure systems might have collided and moved up the coast of the Eastern US, picking up moisture from the ocean and blanketing populations centers with more snow. Fortunately, updated model outputs suggest that the more southern system will track harmlessly into the Atlantic ocean, leaving only a weaker low pressure system that may bring snow showers on Sunday. Until then, the daily high and low temperatures in Cambridge will be around 10 degrees F colder than usual, so bundle up!

Over the past few days, temperatures more than 10 degrees higher than average melted most of the snow remaining from the last storm. The daily average for this week in Cambridge is normally below freezing (32°F), but we have barely dipped below freezing even at night since last week. Expect warmer weather to persist through Friday before a return to normal temperatures this weekend.

Unusually cold temperatures will remain in Cambridge over the next week. A high pressure system brings with it clear skies. The days will be sunny but the mornings will be cold because of high levels of radiative cooling at night.

Fall semester has arrived and with it autumn weather. The overnight lows are dipping below 60°F, resulting in chilly mornings perfect for intense outdoor exercise. Daytime high temperatures will remain in the 70s°F for the next few days, with partly cloudy skies but no significant precipitation expected. Elsewhere in the Northeast, areas of MA, NY, VT, NH, and ME expected their first frost and freeze warnings this morning.

Today should be mostly clear and warm, with a high temperature near 80°F — time to install air conditioning! After today, the air will remain humid as the weather takes a turn for the worse. Expect rain showers and thunderstorms on Saturday, ahead of a cold front that will move in Saturday night. Sunday will be cooler and cloudy, with some rain possible. Such weather is not confined to New England; forecasts predict precipitation in 47 of the continental U.S. states in the next 36 hours.
