Temperatures to spike then crash as cold front comes through.

After a blast of snow and a multiday outbreak of bitter Arctic air, the Presumpscot lazy Susan has stopped rotating, and it’s not clear if or when it will restart.

Rain could be heavy at times late tonight through tomorrow morning.

Temperatures remain chilly but up a notch from recent levels.

The city is about to come out of polar night, which casts months of darkness above the Arctic Circle during winter.

After an inch of rain overnight, bitter cold air floods the region on Sunday.

Sustained wintry weather is not expected locally. An isolated slick spot isn't impossible, especially to the north.

It's rather tranquil into tomorrow afternoon before conditions go rapidly downhill.

It's mostly rain for the Beltway, but well to the north and west, it will be a hazardous winter ice storm that could bring travel to a full stop.
