Cold Times Ahead...

You knew that this amazing warmth couldn't last. It looks like we have until Tuesday until the spring warmth is all but a distant memory. First, the rest of today looks to be warm with highs generally around 60. Tomorrow will start off mainly dry but showers, heavy at times, will move in during the afternoon and continue overnight and into part of Tuesday. QPF from this looks to be over one inch! Basically, tomorrow and Tuesday look to be mild, but unsettled. Later Tuesday a strong cold front will move through the area with a possible thunderstorm or heavy shower and then colder air will move into the area to end the week. Wednesday looks to be cold with highs generally in the upper 30's to around 40. A few upslope snow showers are possible in the Berkshires and on the western slopes of the Green Mountains in Vermont. Thursday will be seasonalbly chilly with highs in the lower 40's. Then the interesting part comes Friday, St. Patty's Day, as we will have a potential Nor'easter around these parts to dump a whole heck of a lot of snow. More on this later as the computer models are still all over the place with this, but as the NAO looks to be going from positive to negative at this time, it would favor a high QPF event and most of this would be in the form of snow.

More later...watching the BC/DUKE game right now.
