A shot of cold air ushered in following a late-fall snow day this weekend will last throughout the week, with at least two days struggling to make it above freezing.

Despite the chill, a weather system expected to affect the area Monday night is not forecast to produce much – or any – snow accumulation.

Monday will begin partly sunny, then gradually become sunny, with a high near 42. West wind 5 to 9 m.p.h.
