Northeast Has Snowflakes, Turns Colder This Weekend

Snowflakes will fly over some areas of the Northeast this weekend as colder air makes a comeback.

Snow showers will fly downwind of the eastern Great Lakes and across the central Appalachians and northern New England on Saturday night through Sunday morning.

The majority of the snow showers will not accumulate and only remind residents that winter is just around the corner.

It is not out of the question that enough snow falls to lightly whiten lawns in a few isolated places, especially in the higher elevations of New Hampshire and across central Maine.

Clouds accompanying and streaming away from the snow showers will prevent much of the Northeast from viewing Sunday morning's partial solar eclipse. Viewing conditions will be better along the I-95 corridor from New York City southward due to clearer skies.

The snow showers, which will be mixed with light rain at times, will be replaced by drier weather on Sunday afternoon.

While the snow showers will not reach the I-95 corridor from Boston southward, colder air will make a comeback across all of the Northeast by Sunday.

The colder air will cause Sunday's temperatures to be 10 to 20 degrees colder than Saturday's highs. Brisk winds will result in even chillier AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

Along the I-95 corridor from Boston to New York City to Washington, D.C., Sunday's chilly air will have no trouble ushering out Saturday's mild highs in the 60s.

Highs on Sunday will instead be held to the upper 40s in Boston and the 50s from New York City southward.

Sunday night is shaping up to the coldest night so far this autumn across most of the Northeast. Temperatures will drop close to freezing along the I-95 corridor from Boston southward with widespread 20s across the interior.

The coldest spots in upstate New York and northern New England will dip into the teens.

The cold air will persist through Monday with widespread highs in the 40s expected across most of the Northeast. Across northern New England, temperatures will fail to rise out of the 30s.

There will not be a large difference in actual and RealFeel temperatures on Monday with less wind present and plenty of sunshine in control.
