No Snow For The Weekend!
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Well, we're in the clear for the weekend. Although with temps in the 40s, a gusty wind and limited sun, it will feel like a "weak - end" to the workweek.
We'll make it work, however. The day will dawn bright tomorrow, but with cold air thousands of feet up, we'll see the clouds form as early as late morning. Mostly cloudy skies and a gusty wind will make it feel like low 30s in the afternoon. So much for spring on Saturday.
But there's some hope for "milder" temps on Sunday: winds will be lighter, skies will be brighter, and the end result is a high temperature in the mid and UPPER 40s. Hey, it's a start.
But Monday night may be a setback. A storm - which 5 days ago looked like it would sail off the Carolinas without much fanfare - is brushing the southern half of Massachusetts, all of Rhode Island and Connecticut (in addition to NYC). Oddly, the storm will separate as it enters the northeast, with one half sailing out to sea and the other hanging back - left adrift in weak steering currents. Let the record show that storms that are adrift tend to drift our way, so I'm thinking we'll get some accumulation here. What I'm not seeing (yet) is a foot or more of snow, so there is some promise for "only" a glancing shot in this storm.
