Major East Coast Blizzard Tuesday...1-2 Feet Widespread

Can you believe it? Just when you thought winter was over, you were right it is over. April fool's! There is no snow in the forecast. There is not even any kind of cold air in the forecast as well. We have now entered April and it has started feeling like April. Yesterday was amazing with highs in the lower to middle 70's regionwide, except down on the Cape and immediate coast where is was substantially cooler in the upper 50's to near 60. Any warmth like that in the near future. Well, the short answer to that is no. Today will be very mild again with temperatures in the upper 60's to near 70, but with limited sunshine and scattered morning showers, followed by some sunny breaks early afternoon, that may be followed up with some scattered showers and thunderstorms later this afternoon and evening. Some of these storms could bring some heavy rainfall, strong gusty winds, and some small hail. Not expecting any, at this time, to be on the severe side. However, if all of a sudden we break into mostly sunny skies and temperatures soar back into the 70's, our chance of having strong and severe thunderstorms will go up as a result.

Here is a quick look at the five day...

As you can see, however, by the time we reach Wednesday and Thursday, temperatures will be soaring right back into the mid and upper 60's. Maybe 70's by next Friday.

Spring has sprung here in southern New England.
