Finally In Our Favor
Posted by Chris Lambert
It seems like in the last couple of months, any storm that's been in the forecast has trended toward the worst case scenario for us here in New England. Despite the storm that we're tracking for tonight has been on the maps for days, the good news is, there has been no turn for the worse. Finally a break!
We won't get off scot-free though as an increasing easterly wind ushers in some low-level moisture off the Atlantic, providing a few scattered showers this evening that turn to snow showers overnight. The steadiest rain arrives by 8-9PM through Buzzards Bay/Cape/Islands, eventually transitioning to wet snow there later this evening. Don't expect much snow though. From Boston to Worcester, through much of Metrowest, only scattered coatings of snow fall. Across Buzzards Bay/Cape/Islands, we may pick up a slushy inch or two, but even there, that's mostly on the grass and car tops. Looks like most of us can keep the shovels tucked away on this one. Winds tonight gust 30-40mph along the coast, with localized gusts to 50mph across Nantucket.
The storm in long gone by the morning commute, and with mostly sunny skies Tuesday, temperatures once again jump into the middle 40s. We'll have a bit of a breeze, but overall, not a bad day.
The rest of the week looks quiet. Just a spot sprinkle or shower for 20% Wednesday afternoon, a 50% chance of a sprinkle or shower Thursday afternoon, followed by dry weather into the weekend.
The warmest day I have in the forecast is Easter Sunday... highs then reach the mid 50s!
