April 6th Update

Ho-hum - cool April weather pattern continues

An unseasonably cool April weather pattern continues for at least the next five days. The temperature will struggle to reach 50° between Saturday and Wednesday before slightly milder weather tries to move in late next week. On the plus side, it looks like there will be a lower threat of snow in the next week.

It has been a very chilly start to April in a big chunk of the U.S.

The weekend looks dry and cool, with highs in the mid 40s, and lows in the 20s to low 30s on Sunday. The only chance of snow, and it’s a slight one, is late Saturday night as a storm moves out to sea well to our south. Both days look partly cloudy in the afternoon, with a few more clouds in the morning. Dry weather continues on Monday, but it will not warm up, with highs again shy of 50°.

It looks less likely that a significant storm will form in the middle of next week. The storm likely develops too far south to bring heavy rain/snow to Southern New England. Some showers are possible, but I do not expect a soaker or snow. Highs will be in the 40s again.

Warm weather tries to move into the Northeastern United States late next week, but it may not be very successful. It may get to 50° on Thursday, which is still nearly 10° below normal for this time of the year, but, a cold front could knock the temperature back into the 40s on Friday. Looking ahead to next weekend, a slow-moving storm may bring rain Saturday into Sunday before clearing out early in the following week.

Amazingly, the Euro weeklies keep the temperature running below normal in the Northern United States, including New England through April and into May. Of course, as we get deeper into spring, below normal could mean temps in the 50s to near 60 with pleasant conditions, but not as warm as it typically is in late April or early May.
