A Taste of Spring…
Temps will stay above normal through the weekend and we have a little rain on the way too…if you didn’t know better you’d think it was March or April. Highs today climbed back up into the 40s that along with the bright sunshine melted away some snow. That meltwater will refreeze tonight as temps dive down into the teens and 20s under Triple C’s (clear, calm and cold) conditions.
High pressure will slide offshore early tomorrow and sunshine will fade quickly behind clouds as our next weather system rolls in from the west. With very little wind and limited sunshine temps will only slowly climb out of the 30s through early afternoon finally topping out in the lower 40s around dark. Also, in the evening, showers will arrive from the west…mostly in the form of rain but in Northern Worcester County and especially in Northern New England, enough low level cold will hang on to produce a brief period of freezing rain before the milder air works in.
The weak low and it’s rain will slide east of us Saturday morning but light onshore winds will keep clouds locked in most of the day…highs will be in a Spring-like range of 45-50. Sunday will be the warmest of the stretch, SW winds will pick up enough ahead of a coldfront to mix down even warmer air from aloft…temps will easily be in the 50s and might even touch 60.
A Coldfront will slide through on Monday with rain and cooling temps late in the day…temps will continue to trend down in the wake of the front for the middle and second half of the week getting back to normal or even below normal Winter cold. There is also a chance for a mixed precip storm either Tuesday or Wednesday…the front won’t get far and a wave of low pressure will ride up along it producing overrunning precip. Depending on how deep the cold layer is will dictate the precip type.
