Technical Discussion:

As an upper level shortwave passes through, a few flurries are possible. Some lake effect streamers have been trying to sneak in Connecticut, but there's also low pressure developing to the south of Long Island. That system doesn't pose a major threat, but may keep some enhanced cloudiness for southern sections.
The next threat of precipitation comes late Saturday night into the day on Sunday.
Periods of flurries and light snow are expected, but low pressure is projected to develop well east of New England. However, with moisture in place aloft and a series of lows moving through the area, still do expect occasional light snow through much of the day. The potential still exists for an inch or two of snow, but not expecting heavy amounts. 
A series of low pressure systems are expected to swing through or south of the area next week. The models have waffled a bit with the timing of the next system for the middle of next week. As a result, shifted possible snow a little bit later into Tuesday night and early Wednesday.
Through the next six days, temperatures hold near or a few degrees below average. With 850mb temperatures averaging between -10 and -15C and at least some cloud-cover most of the time, high temperatures should be fairly uniform in the low to mid-30's. 

Today: Sun and clouds, breezy. A flurry or two possible. Highs in the low to mid-30's.
Tonight: Mostly clear and chilly. Lows in the teens inland, near 20 on the shore.
Saturday: Increasing clouds. Flurries late at night. Highs in the upper 20's to lower 30's.
Sunday: Periods of light snow. Highs near 30 inland, low to mid-30's on the shore.
---Possible snow accumulation: 1 to 2 inches
Monday: Partly sunny and seasonably cool. Highs in the low to mid-30's.
Tuesday: Light snow possible at night. Highs in the low to mid-30's.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy. 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.
