Technical Discussion:
A broad area of low pressure swinging through the Northeast will keep some rain showers in the forecast off and on through the day. The area almost gets warm-sectored, but with winds still out of the east, not expecting much in the way of a temperature rise through the day. A few towns in Fairfield County might sneak into the upper 40's.
Thursday hangs onto cloudiness and a rain shower or two is possible during the day. Have kept the forecast highs well below MOS guidance given clouds and 850mb temperatures around -4 to -5C.
Thursday night is where the models diverge and things might get interesting. The NAM is insistent on a band of light snow backing into the area, but the GFS and especially Euro are much less robust. Could see a few snow or even rain showers Thursday night, but with marginal temperatures and light precipitation, no significant accumulations are expected.
Friday begins to finally clear out as low pressure slides east of New England. Continued to show clouds giving way to sunshine with the forecast graphics.
The weekend looks relatively quiet, but the area will be sandwiched between high pressure to the west and a series of low pressure centers to the east. The end result is a mixture of sunshine and clouds with temperatures near average.
Heading into the beginning of next week, the forecast remains quiet at this time, with high pressure forecast to be in place across southeastern Canada. Eyes will shift towards the lower/middle Appalachians by Tuesday as the GFS and especially Euro show signs of a significant storm developing. More details need to be reviewed before specifics can even begin to be speculated.

Today: AM rain/wind, few afternoon showers possible. Highs in the low to mid-40's.
Tonight: Mostly cloudy, a passing rain shower or two. Lows in the 30's.
Thursday: A daytime rain shower, snow/rain showers at night. Highs in the mid-40's.
Friday: Clouds give way to sunshine. Highs in the low to mid-40's.
Saturday: Sunshine and clouds, seasonable. Highs in the lower 40's.
Sunday: Partly sunny. Highs in the upper 30's to lower 40's.
Monday: Partly cloudy. 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.
