In like a lion, out like a lamb. That's the March motto. However, it looks like we'll start off the first several days of the month on the quiet side (lamb-like). In fact, temperatures are very consistent, hovering in the lower 40s each afternoon.
There will be a stubborn area of low pressure in the upper-levels of the atmosphere across New England and it'll be slow to move out of New England. With that said, it's been an area of low pressure that's been losing steam. It'll be enough to keep more clouds than sun, and an occasional rain or snow shower around Friday and Saturday, but many dry hours are also included each day. Sunday looks dry with partly sunny skies.
Bottom line, no major storms through the weekend. Finally! Great ski weather too! Low to mid 30s in Ski Country with an occasional snow shower. Remember, the last two rain storms here have been all snow up there.
Next week, Monday and Tuesday feature a north wind that goes northeast. That'll keep some low to mid level moisture in place, enough for mostly cloudy skies, but mainly rain/snow free skies. Wednesday, northeast winds increase, and a rain or snow shower can't be ruled out. Overall, it'll be a raw and windy day.
The wind on Wednesday is generated by the pressure difference of a high to our northeast and an ocean storm to our south. Right now, that big ocean storm looks to stay out to sea, and our quiet weather should continue into the end of the week.
