Temperature Roller Coaster in Northern New England

Wild temperature swings will be the name of the game across northern New England through the rest of the week and into the weekend.

Before that, the weak storm system responsible for the snow across the mid-Atlantic Tuesday will move across southern New England Tuesday night.

Some flurries and perhaps even a period of light snow will move up from the south and will brush part of the seacoast Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Any accumulation will be less than an inch.

The bigger impact will come as the storm pulls away. Some of the coldest air of the season so far will plunge into the region for the rest of the workweek as a chilly, northerly flow develops.

The arctic chill will be short-lived, though, as a significant warmup will arrive for the weekend and early next week. In many cases, temperatures Sunday will climb 15 to 20 degrees higher than Friday's levels.

With some sunshine, the weather will be perfect for getting some outdoor holiday decorating each day.
