With a couple of very cool days ahead, April is likely to be the sixth consecutive month with cooler than normal weather in the Providence area. The midweek cool, and eventually rainy, conditions will last through most of Thursday before decent weather arrives in time for the first weekend of May.
The weather pattern looks fairly quiet through the first week of May. A fast-moving system may bring showers Sunday night into Monday. The weather feature we’ll be keeping an eye on next week is a warm front that will be draped through the mid-Atlantic early in the week. Southern New England will be on the cool side of the front, but it should be far enough away that there is some sunshine and highs in the low 60s Monday afternoon and Tuesday.
Showers from the front could arrive as soon as the middle of the week, but it’s also possible that the high pressure will keep them at bay until late in the workweek or over the Mother’s Day weekend. So, after a quiet start to the month, it looks like it will be somewhat unsettled during the second week.
