After starting the weekend on a snowy note in Boston, a few more snow showers will follow for the remainder of the extended holiday weekend before frigid air plunges southward.

The parade of Alberta Clippers streaming from western Canada to the East Coast will continue through the upcoming week.

The next two clippers will bring a snow shower or two to Boston both Sunday and Monday. Little, if any accumulation is expected.

Otherwise, temperatures will rise into the upper 30s these two days. Highs these days will not be a sign of things to come.

Instead, the polar vortex will sink southward and usher in noticeably cold air by Tuesday.

Temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday will be held to the teens with single digits expected at night.

More waves of frigid air should follow for the remainder of the month.
