It seems that we really turned the page on an awful month of March in Southern New England. So far, April has been very nice, with Thursday’s high temperature flirting with 60°. While there is some nice weather in the forecast for the next couple of weeks, there is also some rain and cooler conditions. One thing we do not see right now, is snow.
The first round of rain is likely Friday night into early Saturday. It will be followed by fine weather Saturday afternoon and Sunday. Another storm system brings the threat of severe weather to the Southeastern United States on Monday, and rain, with the chance of a t-storm, to Southern New England Monday night. The rain may be heavy at times, but the system should be progressive enough to limit storm totals to an inch or less.
A cool shot in the middle of next week will be short-lived. There are some signs of a potential late-week warm-up, but we’re not quite sold on it yet. In the big picture, we think a lot of our weather from April 11-17 may come from Eastern Canada, which would prevent any big warm-ups during that time.
