Chilly weather ahead

Temperatures cooled down this week, with highs in the 40s°F and lows near 30°F, thanks to a high pressure system influencing the region over the last few days. Although it’s been dry for most of the week, that will likely change today — as a low pressure moves into Quebec, its associated warm front will likely bring us some light rain this morning. Otherwise, temperatures should be mild today, with a high of around 47°F (8°C).

Looking toward the weekend, Saturday looks to be a pleasant day, with a high of 46°F (8°C) and sunny skies. This all changes Saturday evening, though, as a cold front pushes through and a cold Arctic air mass settles in behind it. Sunday will be very cold and windy, with a high temperature around freezing (low 30s°F/low single digits °C). Finally, a few snowflakes can’t be ruled out Saturday night/Sunday as the front passes.
