The strong early spring sun quickly melted Monday morning’s snow in Southeastern New England. More mild weather is ahead from the midweek, as the temperature reaches the upper 40s on Tuesday, and most likely the mid 50s on Wednesday. A back-door cold front could drop it back into the 40s on Thursday as a northeast breeze develops. It’s very likely that the front will make its way into Southeastern Massachusetts. It’s not as certain that it will get that cool in all of RI. Mild air returns on Friday, but with it comes rain. It may move out in the afternoon, salvaging at least part of the day. Easter weekend starts with a cool clouds on Saturday. Easter Sunday will start with temperatures in the low to mid 30s under mostly sunny skies. The afternoon looks dry and milder inland than at the coast. Highs will range from the mid 40s to the low 50s.
A rain storm is likely early next week. It should arrive on Monday, and may linger into Tuesday. The pattern looks pretty active in early April, with precipitation chances every few days. In fact, with cooler weather likely, some snow cannot be ruled out. There is nothing imminent, but we have definitely seen warmer patterns in the Northeast to start April! Regardless of snow, it should be a relatively wet stretch from late March through the first 10 days or so of April.
