Cape Cod & the south coast region got pounded by some localized heavy snow late last night & early this morning (Acushnet & Brewster 9" of snow) while the people of Worcester & Dracut got nada. One of those winters. This storm is quickly departing allowing for some sunshine but also creating some wind. That chilly wind howls for much of the day serving as a reminder that it's still early spring around here (we get it, thanks).
The weekend will offer partly to mostly sunny skies both days but Saturday will still be windy at times making those afternoon temps in the low 40s feel colder. Sunday is a nice day--by March standards. Partly to mostly sunny skies AND much less wind. That sunshine flexes its muscles as afternoon temps reach the upper 40s (normal high temp is 49).
Early next week another storm will be along the east coast. As of now, most of that storm will pass to the south of New England but a slight shift in the track to the north and we're talking plowable snow again. I do think we will see clouds & even a few flurries (perhaps a coating of snow on the south coast/cape/islands). Plan on a chilly wind too.
Any hope of warm temps?
Sorry to be that guy but until the pattern breaks down, I don't see any long stretches of warmth (stealing a day here/there is possible). As to when that cold pattern breaks down?.....It may linger until Patriots Day.
