Fog and rain will continue to create headaches for travelers through Monday before colder air returns for Christmas.
The springlike warmth that shattered records in New York City and Providence, R.I., stopped short of reaching Boston on Sunday.
Cold air and dense fog instead held on stubbornly, and will continue to do so through Sunday night. Motorists should use caution and allow for extra stopping distance.
A bit of rain will also dampen the city during this time. Enough cold air is in place for the rain to freeze on some surfaces along and outside of I-495.
More headaches await all travelers on Monday as soaking rain arrives. The rain will fall heavily at times, especially south of the city.
Any downpours will pose hazards to motorists--including those heading to their Christmas Day destinations--by dramatically reducing visibility and heightening the risk of vehicles hydroplaning.
Slow travel can be expected on the many highways and interstates in and around the city on Monday. Airline passengers should also prepare for delays.
The departure of the rain Monday night will then open the door for progressively colder air to arrive through Christmas Day.
Despite sunshine winning out over clouds, temperatures on Wednesday will be held to the mid-20s--Boston's typical overnight low on Christmas Day.
