It was no doubt an uncomfortable day for football fans visiting Patriots Nation from temperate Los Angeles as Sunday continued the bitter cold expected to last through the week.
The high temperature in Boston only hit 29 degrees on Sunday afternoon, and snow could make an appearance Monday and later this week, according to the weather service.
Sunday night, temperatures are expected to drop into the upper teens and scattered snow showers are predicted overnight for the southeastern part of the state, forecasters said. Flurries were already being reported in Providence around 11:30 p.m., according to the weather service.
Forecasters said showers could last into mid- to late morning, with a steady but light falling between 6 and 9 a.m.
“We can’t rule out some coating and, worst case, an inch of snow somewhere,” National Weather Service meteorologist Glenn Field said.
Most of the week is expected to be cold and dry, with high temperatures near 32 Monday, 35 Tuesday, 40 Wednesday, 28 Thursday, and 38 Friday, according to the weather service.
But some precipitation is expected late Thursday into Friday in Boston, where only 0.2 inches of snow has fallen this winter, according to forecasters.
“Forecast models are hinting at a return to winter weather,” forecasters said on Twitter.
