Seasonable and Quiet Weather Returns to New England

That super storm in the middle of the nation this week tracked in a path just right to generate widespread warmth, and some thunderstorms Friday, and is now passing hundreds of miles north of New England.

Cold air is working in aloft Saturday morning, that’s the reason we have a few snow showers in the mountains. Otherwise we have some fair weather clouds.

Wind is now gusting from the west past 30 mph. This is drier air moving in for most of us, it’s also cooler air. The high temperature occurs Saturday morning in the low 50s south to 40s north.

The sky should turn mostly clear Saturday night, with temperatures falling back to the 20s south and teens north.

We’re looking at a pretty St. Patrick’s Day, but on the brisk side. Partly to mostly sunny skies high temperature in the 30s to low 40s. There still a bit of a breeze from the west, 15 to 20 mph.

We’re watching a weak disturbance move across Pennsylvania Sunday night that may bring a little bit of light rain or snow to the south coast of New England on Monday. Otherwise were looking at high pressure in northern New England with bright and chilly weather. High temperatures will be near 40°.

More of the same for Tuesday after a cold start. High temperatures will be near 40° with plenty of sunshine.

The vernal equinox coincides with the full moon on Wednesday. The early call is for plenty of sunshine most of the day, with clouds increasing late in the day. High temperature in the low 40s.

A cold front from Canada works into northern New England Wednesday night and Thursday with a chance of snow showers. There may be low pressure developing on this front, that would result in a more significant mix of rain and snow on Thursday. But at this time it’s a little too close to call.

The trend is for colder weather to hang on through the end of the week into the first part of next weekend.
