    (Published Friday, March 24, 2017)

    Clouds and strengthening southwest flow will keep overnight lows from dropping too much. Lows stay in the mid to upper 30s.

    A cold front moves south across the region tomorrow morning with near-normal temperature expected. Scattered rain showers will be the predominant weather during the day with freezing rain, ice pellets and snow mixing in with the rain across central and northern New England.

    We are monitoring for any changes in the forecast. Cold front moves offshore on Sunday with drier conditions working in behind it. This cold front will stall south of New England as a high pressure system moves into the Gulf of Amine.

    This will usher low clouds and drizzle into the area. Expecting highs to reach into the mid to upper 40s south and mid to upper 30s north. Stalled front located along the mid-Atlantic moves back north towards New England as warm front as a low pressure system moves into the Great Lakes.

    As New England sits in the 30s and 40s, Philadelphia and Washington will both climb into the 70s. But so far, it doesn't look like New England will be warmer than 55 through the next 10 days. Currently, March is colder than February, January and December, which is quite rare.

    Mixed precipitation may fall during the day with colder air remaining at the surface. Showers, possibly mixed with sleet and wet snow, will continue through the weekend. Don't cancel any outdoor plans, but be prepared to head inside or bring your rain gear in case.

    Temperatures on Monday will range from the mid 40s south to near 40 degrees north. A number of waves of low pressure move towards us on Tuesday, keeping the chance of precipitation in the forecast.

    Right now, it’s looking like most of the precipitation will be in the form of rain for most locations with highs reaching into the upper 40s to near 50 degrees. A cold front moves through on Wednesday, bringing additional rainfall with it. Temperatures remain seasonable into the middle of next week.
