Despite more clouds and a northwesterly wind, two factors that usually cool us down, we warmed up nicely on Wednesday afternoon. Our average high climbed to 61 degrees, but actual air temperatures have climbed back into the 70s. When this front clears us, cooler air will arrive. However, highs will still run close to average through this forecast.
A large trough in the jet stream is going to set up just off the New England coast the next few days. That’s important to us, because it will the next two storms to pass down to our south. They will be close, so we could see some clouds from them, but it looks like we will stay dry right into the weekend.
During this time, the northerly wind will be gusty. Even though average highs will be close to average, our overnight lows will drop into the 30s with the threat of frost in parts of the state. That changes Sunday as the next front moves our way.
Sunshine will mix with patchy clouds Easter Sunday. It looks like the next front will hold off until after the holiday, possibly bringing us some showers later Monday and Tuesday.
