Snowstorm or Not, Cold Coming to Boston Next Week

While the jury is still out on whether or not a snowstorm will unfold around Boston next Thursday, much colder air is on the way.

First, chilly air with rounds of gusty winds will impact the area this weekend.

Next, the cold will ease on Monday.

However, much colder air is forecast to spread into Boston and along much of the Atlantic Seaboard during the middle of next week.

The pattern will yield the lowest temperatures of the season so far and perhaps a major storm with wind, rain and snow.

High temperatures are likely to be no better than the 40s Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week and could be held to the 30s on one or more days.

The details on the storm or a near-miss will continue to be added into next week, but if you have been putting off tuning up the furnace or getting fuel for it, now might be the time.
