A cold front passed by overnight, quietly in southern New England, but not before putting down several inches of snow in some of the northern New England ski areas! It’s also been cold enough up there to be making snow, so a bit of an early start to the season for some.
The cold front will come to a halt just south of New England today and mild air to the southwest and west of the region will ride up over it, creating lots of clouds today and Saturday. Some light precipitation may break out on Saturday but not looking for a heavy event. By Sunday, the front will have returned northward as a warm front and will introduce a thaw that will last a few days, until a cold front brings us back to the chill around the middle of next week.
