Sunday was comparatively mild after a shot of arctic air, and another comfortable day is expected for Veterans Day as a new cold spell approaches midweek -- bringing a chance for snow Tuesday.
After a cloudy Sunday that reached 53 degrees in Boston, according to the National Weather Service, a very similar day is expected Monday.
With a high near 51 degrees and clouds much of the day, Monday also has a slight chance of rain after 9 p.m., forecasters said.
Precipitation is more likely Tuesday, however, with rain in the afternoon and a chance for snow in the evening, according to the weather service.
The high temperature of about 48 degrees is expected to come early in the day Tuesday as temperatures begin to slide to about 21 degrees overnight with gusty winds and a chance of snow accumulating in the city, the weather service said. Temperatures could drop to near record lows, the service said on Twitter.

After a cold and windy day Wednesday, with a high near 31 and a low near 19, precipitation could return Thursday, as temperatures fall from an expected high near 36 to an overnight low about 29, according to forecasters.
Any snow would likely fall between midnight and 4 a.m. Friday, the weather service said.
The cold edge is expected to ease as the weekend arrives, as temperatures reach about 46 degrees Friday and 39 on Saturday and Sunday, forecasters said.
