Quiet Tuesday, Wild Wednesday

The weather and temperatures will be doing ups and downs this week. Today we are on the downside of the roller coaster, but we will be back up tomorrow with afternoon highs in the upper 40's. However, clouds will thicken tomorrow night and we will see some snow move in after midnight for the entire region, even down to the Cape. The snow will quickly transition to sleet and then sleet and rain to all rain by early morning on Wednesday, maybe allowing for a slick, icy Wednesday morning commute from Worcester points east into Boston. The warm air will be slowest to erode in the eastern areas, but it will eventually. There may even be a small snow accumulation above 500 feet, on the order of an inch and once you get above 1000' and especially 2000', you will see snowfall on the order of 1-3" in SNE. Parts of NNE will fair better snow wise with a snow to rain to snow situation and some spots will receive over six inches of snow. In SNE we will start as a mix change to rain and then have drying NW winds clear us out to have a nice, yet windy, Thursday with highs in the upper 40's to around 50 leading into the long weekend for many.

This weekend will feature mainly quiet conditions for the six state region, but it will be very chilly on both Saturday and Easter Sunday. Early morning services on Sunday will be mighty cold with temperatures in the 20's. Bundle up. Storm threats look minimal past Wednesday's storm, however. Dry and cold to round off the workweek and head into the weekend.
