Yes, spring is finally here---the entire planet has an equal amount of daylight and for us in the northern hemisphere it will only get brighter. Now we just need to do something about this mid-winter pattern. The pattern happened before....anyone remember just 2 years ago (January 2011)? Yup, all that snow in just 5 weeks. It's happening later this year just later than we would like. Where is the endgame with this pattern?!? Sadly, it's not today, I think we have another 2 weeks before it breaks down.

Today will be bright with partly sunny skies. That sunshine is getting strong now that we are into spring and will be able to push temps into the low 40s by afternoon. A gusty west wind will add a chill to the air at times though. Partly cloudy skies tonight with lows into the 20s.
Tomorrow is a close call with a developing ocean storm. I think it will be too far away to bother all of us but it will toss some snow showers into coastal southern New England by late afternoon & night. IN fact, a couple of inches of snow quite likely out on the Cape/Islands late tomorrow night. A coating to an inch is possible along the south shore & up into Boston late tomorrow night.
Sunshine returns in small doses on Friday and in much larger doses for this upcoming weekend. A slow warming will occur as well with temps by Sunday reaching the mid 40s---"normal" for this time of year.
