After a brief warmup this weekend, winter weather will return in time for the new year.

While Sunday will bring temperatures reaching into the 40s, a storm coming up the coast will put a damper on outdoor activities and travel by the end of the day.

Fans heading to the Patriots/Bills game at Foxboro, Mass., Sunday afternoon should expect wet weather to move in.

Just before it's time to ring in the new year, a cold front will sweep the I-95 corridor and bring back the chilly air.

While highs will be close to 40 on Monday, temperatures will take the plunge again Monday night.

For those ringing in the new year with fireworks at Boston Harbor, RealFeel® temperatures will dip into the single digits.

A major storm with snow could affect the area before the end of next week.

In northern New England, actual temperatures may stay below zero during New Year's Day.
