I am on the road and this Long Range Forecast will not feature a video. Overall, there is not a heck of a lot of change in the thinking about the weather outlook for the rest of the month and first few days of May. Unlike last spring, when it was extremely warm, this spring is much more typical of what we should expect in April in Southern New England. The average temperature for the month in Providence is just a hair above normal. Here are some highlights looking at the next two weeks:
- Dry, but cool stretch of weather from midday Saturday through Monday
- Some rain likely from an ocean storm that clips Southern New England Monday night into Tuesday
- That storm could be a soaker if it tracks a bit farther west than currently projected
- Another round of rain likely later in the week (THU) as a cold front moves through SNE
- The early outlook for next weekend isn’t bad, but it does not look particularly warm either. The high may struggle to reach 60° with some sunshine.
- There will likely not be a lot of 65°+ days in the next couple of weeks – keep in mind, the normal high in early-May is near 65°
