BOSTON (CBS) – Here we go again …
After a number of unusually warm conditions, including record heat in Boston last week, gusty winds brought “cooler” air for the weekend. Although the temperatures are 15 to 20 degrees cooler, we are still slightly above average in mid-March. However, these winds howled on Friday evening with gusts of over 80 km / h in some places, which led to tree damage and isolated power outages.

Well, another round of strong to damaging gusts of wind is likely on Sunday afternoon. Wind advice was issued for all of southern New England from noon to midnight Sunday. The strongest winds are expected between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday. Make sure to collect and secure loose items around and on your property. Gusts of up to 80 km / h are possible, which can lead to more tree damage and power outages.
These strong winds are related to an Arctic front sliding south through New England on Sunday afternoon. This front will also create an increase in clouds on Sunday with a passing shower or snow storm.

Monday morning it will be dry and clear, apart from a few ocean-effect clouds and thunderstorms that are possible over the Outer Cape. The winds will subside on Monday morning, but occasional gusts are possible until the evening. These winds will help bring cold air into the area to start the week. Temperatures will be teenage ages on Monday mornings, but when the wind chill the temperatures will feel like -10 to 5 degrees.
Despite the sunshine, the highs only rise into the 20s to 30s on Monday. That is almost 15 degrees below the average. New record low maximum temperatures are possible.

Temperatures are moderate throughout the week, with 50 to nearly 60 by the end of the week, but that also brings our next chance for widespread showers. Look forward to forecast updates as we get closer.
