Technical Discussion:
As low pressure passes well east of New England, blustery and cold conditions are here to stay for the next 12 to 24 hours. Based on prior forecasts and surface observations, will continue to play the forecast well below MAV MOS guidance for highs on Sunday. Wind chill values tonight could easily drop to near zero for a few hours, especially inland.
Temperatures begin to moderate with sunshine during the day on Monday. It's not until Tuesday that readings get closer to seasonable levels.
The next round of precipitation is expected Tuesday afternoon and evening. 850mb temperatures would support snow/sleet inland, but temperatures closer to the surface may be running near 40F. The current forecast will keep the wintry mix wording, but timing will be important. With that said, still believe MOS guidance with highs in the upper 40's is way too warm.
Chilly air and below average temperatures return for Wednesday and Thursday.
There could be some storminess approaching to end the week or into early next weekend, but will play Friday mostly cloudy for the time being. 

Today: Sun and clouds, windy and cold. Highs in the mid to upper 20's.
Tonight:
Fair, breezy and very cold. Wind chills near zero. Lows 5 to 14.
Monday: Mostly sunny skies, not as cold. Highs in the low to mid-30's.
Tuesday: Clouds. Light rain or a wintry mix by late-day. Highs in the low to mid-40's.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy, breezy and cooler. Highs in the mid-30's.
Thursday: Mostly sunny skies. Highs in the upper 30's to around 40.
Friday: Mostly cloudy. Highs 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.
