The storm track is favorable for systems to miss New England for a few days. One such system went to the south of New England Monday night and is now intensifying well to our east out at sea.
This track put us on the cooler side of the front. We have a bright but cold start Tuesday. Temperatures in the teens and 20s will get up to the 30s and lower 40s.
There’s a breeze from the northwest adding an extra chill Tuesday morning. The wind may turn around to a sea breeze this afternoon. The ocean water temperature in the 30s will keep the beaches pretty cool.
With a clear sky Tuesday night, light wind, and dry air, we are going to get about as cold as you get this time of year. We may go to 10 degrees below zero in a few spots where we have deep snow on the ground in northern New England.
Otherwise, low temperature again is in the single numbers and teens north, to 10s and 20s south. Another sunny day is in store for Wednesday with temperatures getting up closer to 50 degrees by afternoon. Once again cooler at the beach.
A storm tracking across southern Canada will push a front into New England Thursday, with increasing clouds and a chance of rain showers in the afternoon. It may be cold enough for snow showers in the mountains. High temperature in the 50s south, cooler north.
That same front stalls over southern New England with many clouds for Friday, likely holding the temperature back down in the 40s to lower 50s. Then the same front should move north as a warm front Friday night, shifting the wind around back in from the south for a warmer Saturday.
If the sun comes out in southern New England, we may be able to get into the lower 70s. However, the front is stuck in northern New England with clouds and temperatures in the 50s. That same front pushes south Sunday with a chance of showers and temperatures for back a little into the 50s south and 40s north.
There may also be a coating of snow in our northernmost mountains. We are then cooler to start off next week and there will be another developing ocean storm.
It’s too early to say whether that storm wants to turn into an April Fools’ Day surprise or not, we'll keep an eye on it. Try to avoid surprises, stay tuned to our First Alert 10-Day Forecast.
