    Cold Weekend for Boston

    Cold air and gusty winds are taking aim on the Boston area for Saturday and Sunday.

    A strong cold front will swing through late Friday night bringing spotty rain showers.

    Arctic air follows the front with winds gusting in the neighborhood of 40 mph.

    Temperatures may not rise much from Saturday morning lows. In some cases, temperatures may fall during the day Saturday.


    The cold flow of air across the Great Lakes will set up the first widespread lake-effect snow event of the season Friday night and Saturday. For those traveling westward into the Appalachians, there is a risk of brief, but blinding snow squalls.


    There is a chance of a passing flurry reaching the I-95 corridor.

    The next chance of precipitation spans Tuesday night into Wednesday.

    While a major storm does not seem likely, a modest system could bring a period of rain, snow or wintry mix to the mid-Atlantic and southern New England.
