We have a mild breeze for this last day of March. More clouds than sunshine, but it’s a comfortable day with high temperature in the 60s for most. Cooler near the south facing beaches with the wind from the south gusting past 30 mph.
A cold front is approaching from the west with a few showers arriving by evening. Low pressure will be intensifying on this front as it passes through New England overnight and tomorrow. On the west side of the track, rain will change to snow over Vermont, western Massachusetts, and the hills of northwestern Connecticut late tonight and tomorrow morning.
East of the track rain will be heavy at times tonight with a chance of a thunderstorm, with temperatures holding in the 50s.
It’s quite a set up for April Fools' Day. A snowstorm likely most of the day in the state of Vermont, with higher elevations receiving more than 6 inches of snow.

There’s a chance that we may have some very light rain or snow around sunrise on Sunday. It’s a tough call, but at this point it looks like it’s going to be rather cool and maybe damp for our Easter in New England.
Also, it now looks like we may have a storm forming in the gulf of Maine Monday, so we’ve had to lower the temperature and add some clouds for early next week, as seen in our first alert 10-day forecast.
