This winter was one of the warmest on record, but now that spring is here, many are wondering how long this warm weather will last. Historically, warm winters like this can be followed by mild springs.
SW flow aloft up the east coast is steering a significant plume of moisture up the East coast today but the rain is mostly moving offshore. Showers will come awfully close to Nantucket, but the rest of the region will remain dry and cloudy under a blanket of overcast which has moved in for the rest of the day. Highs will be in the Lwr 40’s. A thinner overcast in the north and west where there will be some partial sunshine
New England has the best chance for accumulating snowfall. Along and north of the Pike will likely be in the best snow growth regions for substantial accumulations..track dependent. If everything comes together just right… some areas could see up to 6 inches of snow or more…but let’s just rest on this for now. It has not exactly been a good winter for snow storms.
Thirty college students from the Boston area are facing charges after they tried to enter the United States from Canada at the Derby Line, Vt., border crossing with alcohol and drugs in their bags.
Flying 500 feet above a small Vermont town, the I-Team found out that terrorists see the Canada-United States border as their land of opportunity.
Bright sunshine this morning with high pressure pulling off the Mid-Atlantic coast. Clouds will increase this afternoon ahead of an energized short wave which will push through tonight. Highs temps should be able to climb into the mid 40’s ahead of the increasing PM clouds and west winds.
A weak front is pushing through New England today. Temps have started in the Lwr-mid 30’s…with plenty of sunshine, breezy WNW winds, highs will climb to 40-45 south of Boston, and remain in the upper 30’s NW of the city. High clouds will be increasing from the south during the afternoon as a low tracks well south of the region.
A gorgeous Saturday morning will see increasing cloudiness by afternoon. Temps have started in the 30’s and will be climbing into the mid-upper 40’s by this afternoon with a mild west wind. Weak high pressure over us this morning will give way to an approaching front for the evening hours.
Big blue high pressure sitting over us is providing a calmer day with less of a wind chill factor. This high will be pulling off the coast and begin to wrap in warmer SW during the afternoon. This will allow temps to continue to rise through the day…but it will be a slow warming. In fact it will take the entire day of warming just to reach 32 degrees. But this will feel a whole lot better than yesterday! High clouds will continue to increase making for filtered sunshine this afternoon
Today we will see temps around 10-20 degrees above normal. Highs will be climbing into the 50’s south of the MA Pike…Some areas may approach 60 near RI this afternoon. Holding near 50-52 for SNH.
