Warmer Times Ahead

EASTER SUNDAY - Happy Easter everyone! Hope you are all having a good holiday. I thought I'd do a quick post since I had a spare moment. Well, it looks like the Winter of 2008 - 2009 is finally over after today's wet flakes in eastern Massachusetts and northern Rhode Island with a little potent coastal storm this afternoon. I think that will be our last flakes for a while here in SNE. Now we are all about getting these temperatures up and greening the grass and blooming the trees. It does not look like tomorrow will feel like a real mid-April day with highs only in the low 40s in SNE regionwide. There will also be a gusty NNW wind as well which will make temperatures feel like they are in the 30s all day. It will feel downright cold tomorrow for all the holiday festivities. Thereafter, we warm up through the 50s on Monday and then into the low 60s by midweek and through late week. We will have to watch a storm system scooting down to our south through the Mid Atlantic late week and if that moves further north than what is currently projected, then you can forget about low to mid 60s for Thursday. Then we are talking around 50 with rain. A lot could change with the forecast that far out, so stay tuned, but I think that we are in store for some good weather soon. Just hold out another 10-14 days for the real warmth.
