Temperatures will average 10 degrees below normal, feeling more like the middle of December, as the coldest air of the season settles across Southern New England, despite the abundant sunshine today. High pressure will move off-shore tomorrow allowing clouds to roll in; but at least temperatures will moderate a bit as a southwest flow transports milder air across the northeast. A storm developing in the Gulf of Mexico will quickly move across the northeast with a band of moderate to heavy rain by Monday afternoon. The rain could start out as a little icy mix in far northern Ct early Monday morning but will quickly change to rain as milder air quickly changes any frozen precipitation moves in over the region. Storm moves out to sea Monday night followed by clearing skies. Arctic Air settles across the region by the middle of next week with highs only in the 30’s, lows in the teens and 20’s. Bundle-up, as a taste of winter air will be with us through most of next week.
