A new week will bring some relief with mostly dry conditions and temperatures potentially reaching 50 degrees by Tuesday.

Forecasters say Sunday should be partly sunny with highs in the mid-30s.

There’s a slim chance of snow flurries overnight, but nothing that would threaten the Monday morning commute.

“It’s a very light event. I wouldn’t think accumulation,” said Nelson Vaz, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Upton.

Monday is expected to be dry with highs around 46 degrees. Temperatures will drop to about 37 degrees Monday night.

Expect the mildest day of the week to be Tuesday — when it will be about 10 degrees above normal — with highs of about 50 degrees, Vaz said.

The respite will be short-lived: Temperatures are expected to dip into the frosty 30s again Wednesday.

“Normal for this time of year,” Vaz said.
