Cold weather is expected to continue Thursday and Friday, with highs in the teens and low 20s, and lows in the single digits and approaching zero, forecasters said.

Temperatures will warm slightly over the weekend, reaching the mid-20s Saturday and lower 30s Sunday.

There is a chance for some snow Sunday night into early Monday, but National Weather Service meteorologist Alan Dunham said it was too early to be sure how much.

With temperatures reaching the upper 30s Monday, next week will be “a little warmer than what we’re used to at this point,” said Dunham.

The temperature in Boston Wednesday reached 35 degrees as a bright sun came out.


Snow showers Wednesday night into Thursday left just under 2 inches in Boston, bringing total snowfall in the city to 101.8 inches. Boston is nearing levels never seen before. Winter 2014-2015 is already the second snowiest season on record, just behind the winter of 1995-1996, which saw 107.6 inches, the weather service said.

The snow showers left more than 4 inches in some areas in Southeastern Massachusetts and on the Cape, forecasters said.
