Monday through Thursday will be 5-10 degrees above average in the metro with highs in the lower to middle 40s. Enjoy those milder temperatures because another shot of arctic air will arrive by Friday.

Airports in the Northeast are working to get back to normal after a snowstorm caused hundreds of canceled flights. At Boston's Logan Airport, where many flights were canceled Sunday morning, most afternoon flights were on time. Flights in the New York City area have been taking off on schedule.

The National Weather Service says snowfall in the region ranged from 2 to 8 inches in Connecticut and Rhode Island to almost 11 inches in northern Massachusetts and nearly 17 inches on Maine's southern coast.

While the weather posed problems for travelers, skiers were rejoicing. One woman enjoying the fresh powder at Loon Mountain in Lincoln, New Hampshire said, "You don't get a lot of days like this on the East Coast, so when you do everyone's psyched."

Mount Sunapee in Newbury, New Hampshire got a fresh 13 inches of snow and a big skier turnout. Marketing director Bruce McCloy, said cars were filling the parking lot.

Winter doesn't officially arrive until next Saturday.
