Sunny days will be hard to come by in Boston, with overcast skies and on-and-off showers expected through the weekend.
A return of moisture will lead to some rain, drizzle and perhaps sleet around the city tonight. However, areas well north and west of the city will have to contend with near-freezing temperatures for a time, some snow and ice, and the potential for slippery travel.
There is a chance that low clouds and fog may cause flight delays late tonight into early Wednesday morning.
Chilly air is forecast to return to the region on Thursday and Friday with the potential for another wintry mix event by weekend over some interior locations of the Northeast.
The Boston area will fluctuate between two distinctly different air masses throughout this week into the next. This will cause temperatures to shift from day to day, with high temperatures ranging from the middle 40s to near 50 degrees.
For people attending the Boston Common Tree Lighting Ceremony Thursday evening, the weather is forecast to be dry with temperatures near 40.

Even though meteorological winter has begun, several days will feel more like mid-November, rather than early December.
