Seasonable temperatures and clear skies will be returning this week

Breezy conditions today will allow cool air to push through New England. A low pressure system, responsible for the rainy weather yesterday, will continue moving northeastward through southern Quebec. The same system brought a cold front through our region last night. The front shifted the winds from southerly to northwesterly, transporting much cooler air into our region. This overall pattern will continue through the week, with winds easing up as a high pressure center anchors itself over the eastern U.S. Dry conditions will prevail under the high, and overall temperatures will be at normal December levels. Lighter winds and clear skies will keep the cool air mass firmly in place through Friday. Any unsettled weather should hold off until next weekend, when the high departs into the Atlantic and a new storm emerges in the Midwest.
