A Fling With Spring
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
The next 3 days offer some spring-like weather with temps easily reaching the 50s by the afternoon. I'd like to say we've turned the page from winter mode to spring mode but the winter pattern will hold through the rest of March--occasionally offering some mild days here & there. Enjoy them when they appear.
The first is today with many towns reaching the low 50s by afternoon despite a lot of clouds around. No worries about rain out of those clouds, it's a day and at times a breezy day too. Not too shabby for a Monday. Cloudy skies are with us tonight & it stays mild with patchy fog forming as the snow continues to melt.
Tuesday offers even milder temps but also our next storm. It will be rain with those mild temps and I think the first drops arrive around 2-3pm (a bit later in Boston) and that rain lingers well into Tuesday night. It will be a brief shot of heavy rain with many towns picking up an inch of rain. Normally an inch of rain would lead to a yawn from me but with all that snow melting combined with that inch of rain plan on some minor street (and stream) flooding tomorrow night.
That bag of rain is outta here on Wednesday but the mild temps are not as we flirt with 50 yet again. A breeze will add some chill to the air at times. Colder air will return to New England by Thursday & Friday as temps those days are below normal---30s/40s for afternoon highs.
