A secondary cold front is dropping southward through New England this morning, delivering a reinforcing shot of chilly air into the region.
A look at this morning’s regional temperature round-up and wind analysis shows the approaching cold front well. Temperatures are mainly in the 30s across Central and Southern New England to start the day with a west and southwest wind blowing over the region. However, further to the north and west, a stiff northwest wind is blowing across Northern New York State and Northern New England and readings are in the 10s and 20s.
This boundary will shift southward through the area today, giving us a quick 24 hour shot of cold Canadian air tonight and Tuesday. Expect low temperatures to fall into the 20s tonight and for readings to hold in the lower and middle 40s on Tuesday.
That said, this is a brief intrusion of cold. High pressure will shift south and east quickly, allowing a return flow of air to take hold Tuesday afternoon. Much milder air will build into the region for mid-week, with highs reaching the middle to perhaps upper 50s on Wednesday.
