It has been a run of relatively warm weather in Southeastern New England. Every month since last July has been warmer than normal in the Providence area. That streak will likely end in the next week as April comes in slightly below normal.
It does not look like there will be anything too warm heading our way in early May. In fact, you can expect an unsettled start to the month with rain threats causing problems for outdoor activities on several days in the first week or two of the month. A slow-moving weather pattern can mean extended stretches of nice weather, like we saw in early April, and extended stretches of unsettled weather. The latter will plague Southeastern New England in early May. There are signs of at least a brief stretch of dry/warm weather around or shortly after Mother’s Day.
