Gusts Adding Wind Chill to Already Cool Temps

A couple of days of good drying and cooler weather in the higher locations should considerably slow the snow-melt induced flooding.

Monday's storm, which caused wind damage and in some cases 2 inches of rain, is now powering through southeastern Canada. On the backside, we have a windy but dry day here in New England.

The temperature is starting off colder, near freezing north, and 40 degrees south and the wind is still gusting past 30 mph adding a wind chill factor.

So it is a jacket and gloves-kind of weather Tuesday morning. But at least the air is dry and the snow-melt has stopped due to the chill, but the larger rivers are still rising. Smaller rivers are slowly receding back within their banks.

It’s a pretty day, brisk with a high temperature in the 40s and 50s. Wind from the west will continue gusting 30 to 40 mph much of the day.

High pressure settles closer Wednesday. That means after a clear night with a low again near freezing, we should have sunshine and less wind Wednesday, another day in the 50s to near 60 degrees.

The next strong system in the Midwest likely generates severe weather in the lower Mississippi Valley starting Wednesday and will slowly work its way toward New England. I think we are still beautiful to start off Thursday, but clouds will increase and there could be a few showers before the day is over.

High temperatures will be a little cooler and in the 50s. Strong low pressure will move into Michigan and Ontario Friday. That will push a warm front through here with some rain, probably tapering to fog and drizzle as it gets warmer and more humid during the day Friday.

A long cold front is going to stall on the eastern seaboard this weekend with a chance of occasional rain.

Hopefully, we can dry it out a little for Easter. Temperatures will probably stay on the warm side in the 60s for most before cooling late Easter or early next week. This will result in more snow-melt and further flooding issues.
