Long Range Forecast – March 17

Spring begins on Thursday, and although there is a bit of milder weather in the forecast for Thursday and Friday, the overarching theme for the next two weeks is more very cold weather east of the Rockies. This week looks fairly quiet with gradually moderating temperatures. Rain is likely Wednesday night. Thursday and Friday look like the mildest days of the workweek. Rain is likely again on Saturday as a storm passes by.

The big story is the extremely cold weather that will arrive for the last week of the month. It will be brutal for late-March. To put it in perspective, spring begins Thursday at 12:47 PM EDT, and the normal high/low temperature on Saturday is 50°/32°. Next Monday, the high temperature may struggle to reach 32°, and the low will be in the teens. There is a good chance the colder than normal weather will last through most of next workweek.

The long range computer model forecasts are hinting at the potential for an East Coast storm early next week. The models have not done a great job with the details of 7-10 day forecasts recently, and it’s possible there will be no storm. However, with all the cold weather in the Northeast, it could be an impressive wintry storm if something develops off the East Coast and moves close to Nantucket. The bottom-line is there is no sign of extended spring-like weather in the next couple of weeks.
