Technical Discussion:

Clouds increase today ahead of a broad area of surface low pressure. Moisture fields indicate a few flurries could break out tonight, but not expecting much if any accumulation. A center of low pressure does develop east of New England tomorrow, but the track is not close enough for significant snow. As a result, do expect occasional flurries and perhaps a few periods of light snow throughout the day, but would think most areas pick up less than one inch of snow. Forecast will reflect 2 inches or less to account for continuity and the slight risk that a band or two of steady snow could affect some areas.
The timing of the next system has trended slower, so now expecting mostly sunny skies on Monday and only increasing clouds on Tuesday. As 850mb temperatures remain between about -11C and -16C through this time, highs should generally be close to 30 inland with low to mid-30's along the shoreline.
Light snow or flurries are possible on Wednesday as another area of low pressure swings through. Like Sunday, not expecting much in the way of snowfall.
Beyond that, some ridging may develop along the East Coast allowing for temperatures to rise back to near average levels. Threw in 40 degrees for the shoreline by Thursday as the models indicate some warmer air advecting in. 

Today: Increasing clouds. Flurries late at night. Highs in the upper 20's to lower 30's.
Tonight: A few scattered flurries. Lows in the upper teens inland, low to mid-20's shore.
Sunday: Occasional flurries. Highs near 30 inland, low to mid-30's on the shore.
---Snow accumulation: Less than 2 inches.
Monday: Mostly sunny, but chilly. Highs in the upper 20's to mid-30's.
Tuesday: Clouds on the increase. Highs in the low to mid-30's.
Wednesday: Possible light snow or flurries. Highs in the low to mid-30's.
Thursday: Partly cloudy and seasonable. Highs in the mid-30's to around 40.

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.
