    With a flow all the way from Greenland through eastern Canada to the Great Lakes and Northeast regions, it will gradually become colder during the next few days. This is not a pure Arctic air mass, but instead has the more moderate cold... and moisture... we get when there is some flow from the North Atlantic mixes in. This means that places from Chicago to Boston can look forward to some sunshine during the coming weekend, lots of clouds are still likely. This video has more:
