Heavy Rain pushing through the CT and Pioneer Valleys this morning is shifting east for the midday and afternoon hours. Strong Southerly winds aloft are advecting warm moist air into the northeast. A cold front from Canada is pushing south into New England today…bringing colder air behind it. This will create perfect overrunning and lift to Midday-afternoon showers and downpours to develop. SE winds will try to push temps into the lwr 60′s south before the rain moves in…once the rain falls…it is 50′s for all!
Plenty of low clouds and fog at the coast this morning. Clouds are already breaking inland giving way to some partial sun thanks to high pressure off the coast. Winds are light out of the SSE with plenty of cloud cover around today. Still, any breaks will be appreciated and help turn this Saturday into the pick of the weekend with dry and mild conditions with highs climbing into the upper 60s and lwr 70s away from the coast. Breaks of sun are likely through the early afternoon with clouds spreading from west to east from New York state to end the day on the cloudy side.
A gorgeous day! NE winds will keep it cooler at the coastline in the Lwr-mid 50′s. Away from the onshore winds, temps will continue to warm through the day into the Lwr-mid 60′s, near 70 west.
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!
The main batch of rain moving through this morning will gradually be pushing off the coast this afternoon with rain tapering to showers. Temps will be warming aloft, but remain cool at the ground with breezy SE winds with the falling rain. Highs will remain in the 40′s with a slight moderation by the end of the day with lingering showers, drizzle with highs nearing 50.
After a showery and breezy start it is going to start to get mighty interesting around here for the next few hours. The tornado outbreak is finally coming to an end, but upper level winds are steering that energy, and moisture up the east coast in the form of thunderstorms.
We will be tracking that ribbon of rain and snow currently pushing into the Great Lakes. That is the warm front or the leading edge of the warm air mass that is beginning to spread eastward. By dawn tomorrow, the precipitation will be arriving at the coldest point of the day around sunrise.
