Building high pressure this weekend will wrap in drier air along with cooler NNE winds and return temperatures to more seasonal levels for this time of year. A weak front is pushing off the coast this morning. This came with a few light sprinkles or showers overnight and a deck of mid level clouds which is eroding away this morning.
A front will stall over us today, so any sun will be fading this afternoon with skies becoming mostly cloudy. Showers will track along this front right through southern New England during the mid-later part of the afternoon. So this Easter Sunday will not be picture perfect, but a whole lot better than yesterday!
A cold front is pushing through New England tonight. An upper level short wave is providing enough instability and lift that showers are developing along this boundary. On the cooler side of the front, light snow has developed in Pittsfield, Springfield, Orange, Hartford, Windsor Locks, and Gardner. Worcester will be changing over to snow this evening as well. In fact this upper level disturbance has the potential to provide scattered rain/snow showers across much of the region as the front approaches the coast. As temperatures fall behind the front, there is the potential for black ice to develop after midnight
