    It will be sunny, but cold for today's St. Patrick’s Day parades. Temperatures will be well below average in the mid-30s. Colder weather will stick around to start off the coming week.

    Nor’easter number 4 is looking less and less likely. We need the break and it appears we will get one. The next coastal storm should be shoved south thanks to a strong area of high pressure anchored over southern Canada.

    We will see a glancing blow as rain and snow showers are possible mid-week. Gusty winds at the coast will also build some big waves, which could target the already vulnerable shoreline.

    There is no significant warm-up in sight. The first day of spring is Tuesday and it looks rather chilly. Our exclusive 10-day forecast is only showing high temperatures in the mid and upper 40s by day 10.

    If you don’t like snow, thankfully that strong March sun is helping the melting process — you can already see grass in some areas!
