Weather: A Small Taste of Spring

By Efren Gutierrez
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- Over the next two days it will actually feel like spring. With the cold front that passed over the region over the weekend, a high pressure area has settled which will bring clear skies and light winds into all of Southern New England. However, this beautiful weather will not last. A low pressure system from the Great Lakes Region will move into our on Wednesday bringing with it the possibility of rain and colder weather. The system will stay in the region till approximately Thursday, when a high pressure system from Quebec begins to migrate southward.

Elsewhere in the nation, a low pressure system is currently dumping snow and rain in the Great Basin region. That system will continue moving east bringing rain to the Great Plains. The West Coast will have sun until Wednesday when an offshore system will move in bringing rain primarily to the Pacific Northwest.
