Colder air will continue to pour into New England today, with temperatures falling during the afternoon hours and a few light mixed precipitation showers possible. Icing conditions will likely occur during the late afternoon and into the evening hours, with the summits clearing after midnight as much drier air works in from the northwest. High pressure will become centered overhead tomorrow, with temperatures rebounding into the 30s under plentiful sunshine after a chilly start to the morning. Warmer than average temperatures will return as high pressure drifts offshore for the weekend.
