Hope Springs Eternal
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane. --Red, Shawshank Redemption.
Buried under another 4-8" of snow this morning as yet another storm takes a swipe at new England and delays the arrival of spring. The worst of the storm is behind us with the heavy snow just now shifting offshore and milder air beginning to take hold. We'll still see pockets of precipitation throughout the day but it will be in the form of sleet inland & just plain rain along the coast-south shore. Travel will be poor across the region during the entire day so allow for extra time if venturing out.
Thankfully, the storm is eager to leave so by evening (5pm) those pockets of snow,sleet & rain will shut down and only clouds will stick throughout the night. The storm is a fast mover so that means you'll hear some wind tonight--gusting from the west 15-25mph. Watch for areas of refreeze this evening & tonight.
Sunshine is back tomorrow but seasonal temps are not. Despite that powerful March sun, highs will crawl into the upper 30s---nearly 10 degrees below normal for this time of year! Another close call of a storm with an ocean storm--should be far enough away to spare us any big snow but some scattered snow showers are likely. Sunshine returns by Friday & will stick with us into the upcoming weekend.
