Cold and sun are ahead for the coming week in Boston — much like Saturday’s weather — with a slight chance of snow added for Monday and Friday.

Saturday was Boston’s coldest morning since Thanksgiving, thanks to a windchill that made temperatures feel like single digits and teens across the state, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures peaked just below 30 degrees Saturday afternoon.

After an overnight low near 13 degrees, Sunday will probably reach only 26 for a high, according to the weather service. Monday is expected to cap out near the freezing line with highs of 36 degrees Tuesday, 42 Wednesday, 29 Thursday, and 38 Friday.

Those days could feel colder as well, with breezes below 10 miles per hour from the northwest expected most days, forecasters said.

Isolated snow showers are possible between 2 and 11 a.m. Monday — though the chance stands at only about 20 percent, according to the weather service.

Friday and Saturday offer additional opportunities for rain and snow, with the chances under 50 percent.
