Change Things Up
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
The transition from late winter to early spring is under way....mud everywhere in my house (mostly my fault--always forget to take my shoes off---oopsie), rapidly increasing daylight (we've picked up 71 minutes of daylight since the first of the month) and perhaps most notably to a meteorologist are these big beastly storms that stall right over us. In *winter mode* after a monster storm the weather gets right into the sunshine for a few days (remember right after the blizzard how nice it was?) but in *spring mode*, these huge storms can get stuck and stall here in the northeast and that's what is on tap for us the next few days.
Thankfully, this storm will weaken as it stays put---much like a spinning top slowing down--so no worries about anymore heavy rain or powerful wind gusts. What you will have to worry about is Can I get by today without the rain gear? I'd say to have it on stand-by as there will be all sorts of clouds for the day and the risk of a few scattered showers----some of you get rain and other won't. Temps will reach the mid 40s without any wind----not too bad as we close the books on Meteorological Winter.
The first day of Meteorological Spring will be similar to today---still a storm close by and that means clouds. The storm will be even weaker tomorrow so some sunshine is likely & I think the chance of rain showers will be very low. Ironically, with a little sun around tomorrow our temps will be a smidge cooler with temps near 40. We can hold onto the dry weather in to the upcoming weekend. first time in a month, no storms! Yay.
