Technical Discussion:

Steep pressure gradient in the wake of a cold front will keep stiff winds around right into the day on Friday. Temperatures for today fall through the 40's and eventually into the 20's later tonight. A shortwave may have just enough moisture to bring a flurry or two to the area on Friday, although the bulk of that system should remain to our south.
Clouds increase on Saturday ahead of the next round of precipitation on Sunday. Right now, expecting periods of snow for much of the day on Sunday. Low pressure is modeled to develop east of New England. 12z GFS brings the deformation band into eastern New England and shows the potential for light to moderate accumulations in CT. Euro remains a bit less robust and further east. Confidence in some snow is fairly high, but amounts are still to be determined. 
At this point, believe there's a pretty good shot at 1 to 2 inches of snow...maybe more...
Monday should feature a brief break in the action before another area of low pressure swings towards the area.
Tuesday could see another round of light snow, but it is far too early to really get into much of the specifics around potential snowfall amounts. 

Today: Sun and clouds, windy. Temperatures falling through the 40's.
Tonight: Partly cloudy, windy and colder. Lows in the low to mid-20's.
Friday: Staying breezy. A flurry or two is possible. Highs in the low to mid-30's.
Saturday: Increasing clouds. Highs in the upper 20's to lower 30's.
Sunday: Periods of light snow. Highs in the low to mid-30's.
Monday: Partly sunny and seasonable. Highs in the mid-30's.
Tuesday: Light snow is possible. Highs in the low to mid-30's.

Note: Inland temperatures are an average. Often times, outlying areas may be a few degrees cooler than the advertised temperature on the 6-day graphic.
