Weather - Come On, Spring


Come On, Spring

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

As the coastal storm slowly drifts toward the Maritimes and continues to intensify, a high pressure area from south central Canada will gently nudge into the Northeast. Nonetheless, our region will continue to experience the after-effects of the departing storm. The northwesterly flow with its cold, unstable air aloft, will generate considerable midday clouds on Friday, with perhaps a chance of widely scattered sprinkles. The next few nights look to be clear, but quite chilly. Fairer skies are promised for Saturday, with some warm-up to about seasonal temperatures on Sunday. Rains are then to arrive in the Northeast for the first part of next week.

Today: Sunny start, with clouds building up by mid-morning. Partly cloudy and fairly brisk afternoon, with cooler-than-normal high of 56F (13C).

Tonight: Clearing and quite chilly. Low 38F (4C)

Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny and a tad warmer. Highs 5862F (1417C). Afternoon sea breezes in some coastal location will knock a few degrees off the daytime highs.

Sunday outlook: Fair and more pleasant with a warmer afternoon. Lows 3644F (36C), highs in the low 60s (1618C)
