The sunny and warm weather that encompassed much of the East the past several days has been erased by a cold front which is sweeping through the region.
Temperatures will generally be 20-30 degrees colder compared to Monday's highs. With a gusty breeze factored in, it will feel even colder on Tuesday.
As the cold front moved through some locations early Tuesday, there were dramatic drops in temperature over a very short amount of time. In Boston, the temperature dropped from 64 to 54 in less than 10 minutes Tuesday morning.
Some snow showers were even triggered downwind of the Great Lakes and on the back edge of rain along the cold front.
The temperatures on Tuesday will be closer to normal for this time of year. The air mass coming in behind the aforementioned front is modifying as it moves eastward.
Dry weather will also take hold once again with high pressure building in behind the departing front. That will support sunshine across most locales in the East through the end of the week.
This extended dry stretch is good news for residents still trying to clean up from Hurricane Sandy and the nor'easter. It will also give power crews more time to restore electricity to areas still without.
