Weather: Rodent Forecasts

By Robert Korty
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- In spite of the groundhog’s forecast for six more weeks of winter last Saturday, there is still no snow in our immediate future. Even the cold temperatures of earlier this week have moderated back to levels slightly above the climatological average.

Low pressure over the Northern Rockies today will move east into the Great Plains states on Saturday. Meanwhile, high pressure centered over Ontario today will pass over New England and then move offshore by Sunday. Southerly winds on the backside of the high and in advance of the low to our west will advect milder air into the region on Sunday. Rain will overspread the area Sunday; skies will clear and temperatures will cool again on Monday.
