Sunday Forecast

7:18AM

DAYS 1-5 (MARCH 31-APRIL 4)
We get to this final day of March with no big surprises or big changes to the forecast. We’re in the warm sector to start the day, and as mentioned many times the southerly air flow is a cooler air flow for places closer to and along the South Coast, or any south-facing shores, as the air passes over much cooler water before arriving there. We will end today with the arrival of a colder air mass from the west, and the band of rain showers along the boundary will push west to east across the region this afternoon, exiting early this evening. For the start of April, we’ll be back into much cooler air and will have to watch for an offshore storm to be close enough to possibly bring a period of precipitation Tuesday night and early Wednesday. This system should be a fairly quick mover, and if it does impact the region, it will be very short-lived. A weak area of high pressure will move in with fair weather at midweek, but an upper disturbance may kick off some cloudiness at times especially Thursday.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Variably cloudy. Rain showers crossing the region west to east during the afternoon. Highs 48-55 South Coast, 56-63 most other areas but 64-71 possible some interior areas. Wind SW 10-20 MPH shifting to W late in the day.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with rain showers possible eastern areas early, then clearing. Lows 30-37. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
MONDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind NW 15-25 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 28-35. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Clouding up. Highs 40-47. Wind light N to E.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Rain/mix/snow possible favoring southern and eastern areas. Lows 30-37. Wind N 10-20 MPH and gusty.

THURSDAY: Sun then clouds. Highs 45-52. Wind NW 10-20 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 5-9)
Current expected timing of systems would bring low pressure from the Ohio Valley to New England April 5-6 with a period of wet weather likely late April 5 to early April 6 in southern New England. Fair with a brief warm-up April 7, then high pressure from eastern Canada bringing cooler weather April 8 before it quickly warms again at the end of the period with mostly fair weather.

DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 10-14)
Passing frontal systems about April 10 and 12 or 13 with minor bouts of unsettled weather otherwise mainly dry with typical up and down temperatures heading toward the middle of the month.

Saturday Forecast

9:17AM

DAYS 1-5 (MARCH 30-APRIL 3)
The final weekend of March is a lesson in putting too much stock into forecasts several days in advance. Some of them would have had you believe it was a lock beach-style weekend. Even my own forecast hinted at 70+. I put caveats in, maybe not strongly enough. As the days went on we were looking at 2 “usual suspects” that appear this time of year, one being a frontal boundary from the north and the other being the ocean’s influence. Both come into play in at least delaying some warmth and modifying some temperatures. The second of the two was never in doubt. The first, in doubt initially, was something fine-tuned through the week. And the running forecast the last couple of days heading toward this weekend depicted a scenario that will be reasonably close to what happens. The third wildcard regarding the weekend was the timing of a cold front from the west on Sunday. Later timing, warmer with later showers. Earlier timing, a wetter day and turning much cooler. It turns out the answer is really somewhere in between those. It’ll start out mild, showers won’t rush in, but they will arrive later, and we will see a temperature drop-off before the day is over from west to east. So you see, sometimes weather forecasting is pretty simple, like forecasting a sunny day with light wind and a sea breeze the other day with high pressure atop the region, and sometimes it’s nothing like that, with many players to take into account. Once we get beyond this, the first 3 days of April will showcase the forecast contrast yet again, with an easy chilly/dry Monday forecast then a more complex and uncertain outlook for later Tuesday and Wednesday as we monitor the evolution of an offshore storm that likely gets close enough to at least put its cloud shield over the area, and may be close enough to at least graze the region with its precipitation shield as well, and that precipitation shield may be occurring with air cold enough to support something other than just rain. So it’ll be time to get the fine-tuning knobs ready once again. Spring in New England!
Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly cloudy, gradually becoming partly cloudy from south to north. Highs 54-71, coolest South Coast, warmest interior valleys, but warmest readings not being reached in northern areas until late day. Wind light E gradually shifting to S and SW increasing to 5-15 MPH from south to north.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 48-55. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Rain showers crossing the region west to east during the afternoon. Highs 48-55 South Coast, 56-63 most other areas but 64-71 possible some interior areas. Wind SW 10-20 MPH shifting to W late in the day.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy with rain showers possible eastern areas early, then clearing. Lows 30-37. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
MONDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind NW 15-25 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 28-35. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Clouding up. Highs 40-47. Wind light N to E.

WEDNESDAY: Cloudy with a chance of rain morning. Clearing afternoon. Highs 43-50. Wind NW 10-20 MPH and gusty.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 4-8)
Current expected timing of systems would bring an upper disturbance across the region with some cloudiness April 4, a small area of high pressure with fair and milder weather April 5, a low pressure area with unsettled weather April 6, improving and milder weather April 7, and a front from the north with a chill-down April 8.

DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 9-13)
Expecting some up and down temperatures with fair weather to start and end the period and some unsettled weather in between.

Friday Forecast

7:29AM

DAYS 1-5 (MARCH 29-APRIL 2)
A few minor tweaks being made to this forecast, the most notable one being to slow the timing of the return of the front that passes as a cold front today moving back tonight and Saturday as a warm front. It may take until the end of the day for that front to completely get itself back to the north and everyone into the warm sector, so this will happen lastly in northeastern MA and southern NH later Saturday. A cold front crosses the region later Sunday, which itself will be a fairly mild day until nightfall. As April gets underway, we’ll be back in the chill, and we will be watching a storm south of the region by late Tuesday.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly cloudy. Scattered rain showers. Highs 48-55 coastal areas, 56-63 interior. Wind variable 5-15 MPH becoming W.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Patchy fog interior lower elevations. Lows 44-51. Wind W 5-15 MPH becoming N to NE.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy, gradually becoming partly cloudy from south to north. Highs 50-65, coolest South Coast, but warmest readings not being reached in northern areas until late day. Wind light E gradually shifting to S and SW increasing to 5-15 MPH from south to north.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 48-55. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Rain showers crossing the region west to east during the afternoon. Highs 48-55 South Coast, 56-63 most other areas but 64-71 possible some interior areas. Wind SW 10-20 MPH shifting to W late in the day.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy with rain showers possible eastern areas early, then clearing. Lows 30-37. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
MONDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind NW 15-25 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 28-35. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Clouding up. Highs 40-47. Wind light N to E.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 3-7)
Offshore storm may be close enough to bring some precipitation early in the period. A disturbance from the west brings cloudiness and a slight precipitation threat about April 6. Temperatures mostly below normal.

DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 8-12)
Although the upper air pattern looks warm the surface pattern may have other ideas and keep it much more seasonable to even at times cool. A couple bouts of unsettled weather are possible during this period.

Thursday Forecast

7:27AM

DAYS 1-5 (MARCH 28-APRIL 1)
High pressure sinks south of the region today and a cold front approaches and sort-of passes through tonight into Friday, coming to a stop somewhere over or just south of the region before retreating back to the north later Friday and Saturday. This should be possible as the high to the south will be a little stronger than the one to the north, and in many cases when we see the cold air win out, this time the warmer air should. But all the usual caveats are still there: Eastern coastal areas may take a little longer to warm, southern coastal areas will be much cooler as a south or southwest wind is onshore there. Regardless, a stronger cold front will be coming in from the west on Sunday, and again its exact timing will help determine temperature and any rain threat. Still leaning toward most of the day being on the warmer side and shower activity being limited. A band of scattered showers may form ahead of the main front earlier in the day with the main band of rain showers waiting until later with the front itself. Will fine-tune these details the next few days. By Monday, the first of April, it may feel a bit like winter again.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Partly sunny. Highs 48-55 except 55-62 interior valleys. Wind light S.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Risk of brief rain showers. Lows 40-47. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY: Variably cloudy. Highs 48-55 coastal areas, 56-63 interior. Wind variable 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Patchy fog interior lower elevations. Lows 45-52 evening, may rise overnight. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs ranging from 48-55 South Coast to 56-63 interior southern areas to 64-71 most other areas with a few warmer readings possible interior valleys. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 45-52. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Scattered rain showers possible any time. General showers likely from west to east later. Highs 48-55 South Coast, 56-63 most other areas but 64-71 possible some interior areas. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy with rain showers possible eastern areas early, then clearing. Lows 30-37. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
MONDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind NW 15-25 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 2-6)
Temperatures below normal much of this period. Watching for an ocean storm early period that may brush or graze the area with rain/mix/snow then more unsettled weather is possible both April 4 and 6 based on current timing.

DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 7-11)
Nearby boundary results in uncertain and low confidence temperature and weather forecast but for now continuing the same idea of leaning toward near to below normal temperatures with at least a couple bouts of potential unsettled weather. That said, not seeing a signal for an excessively wet period of weather either.

Wednesday Forecast

7:01AM

DAYS 1-5 (MARCH 27-31)
A chilly start, a warm-up, and a quick chill-down during these final 5 days of March. High pressure controls the weather to start this period, being overhead today which starts cold but feels reasonably comfortable by later morning on with strong late March sun and light wind. As high pressure slips to the south, a warm-up begins Thursday and nearly gets thwarted Friday as a cold front moves into the region, but this front does not have a lot of push with it and will basically run out of gas and then be pushed back to the north later Friday. The maximum part of the warm-up will be Saturday when we’re in the strongest southwesterly flow, but this wind will keep the South Coast cool as the air will be coming right off the chilly ocean. The timing of a cold front approaching from the west is key for Sunday’s weather and temperature, with guidance ranging from early day to late day on the front’s timing. Been leaning later the last few days and will continue to do this for now.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Sunny. Highs 45-50 coast, 50-55 interior. Wind light variable with sea breezes.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 27-34. Wind light SE.
THURSDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 48-55 except 55-62 interior valleys. Wind light S.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Risk of brief rain showers. Lows 40-47. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 48-55 coastal areas, 56-63 interior. Wind variable up to 10 MPH, becoming SW 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Patchy fog interior lower elevations. Lows 45-52 evening, may rise overnight. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs ranging from 48-55 South Coast to 56-63 interior southern areas to 64-71 most other areas with a few warmer readings possible interior valleys. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 45-52. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Afternoon rain showers possible. Highs 48-55 South Coast, 56-63 most other areas but 64-71 possible some interior areas. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 1-5)
A much cooler start to April. The wildcard is whether or not there will be any storminess or it will be largely dry. Need to watch a wave of low pressure to the south that may evolve into an ocean storm south to southeast of the region. Whether or not it gets close enough to bring rain and possibly mix/snow remains to be seen. If that system is far enough offshore, we may warm up right at the end of the period.

DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 6-10)
We’ll be near a boundary, so neither the weather nor the temperature forecast can be made with high confidence at this point. Leaning toward the cooler side of normal for temperatures with a couple precipitation threats. Even though the upper air pattern looks warmer, the surface pattern says “eh, not so much” with wind from cooler north and east more often than milder south and west.

Tuesday Forecast

7:39AM

DAYS 1-5 (MARCH 26-30)
High pressure will be in control of the weather the next few days, with southern New England starting out on the cold side of it today, right under it Wednesday, and on the milder side of it by Thursday. A cold front will move into the region from the northwest Thursday night and run out of gas over the area early Friday before shifting back to the north later Friday, and as high pressure strengthens a bit more to the southeast versus a weaker one to the north, the warmer air should win out later Friday through Saturday, with ocean-modified areas being cooler based on wind direction, which coming from the south and southwest, would have greatest impact on the South Coast area.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Some cloudiness South Coast region early otherwise sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 25-32. Wind light N.
WEDNESDAY: Sunny. Highs 45-50 coast, 50-55 interior. Wind light variable with sea breezes.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 27-34. Wind light SE.
THURSDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 48-55 except 55-62 interior valleys. Wind light S.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Risk of brief rain showers. Lows 40-47. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 48-55 coastal areas, 56-63 interior. Wind variable up to 10 MPH, becoming SW 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Patchy fog interior lower elevations. Lows 45-52 evening, may rise overnight. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs ranging from 48-55 South Coast to 56-63 interior southern areas to 64-71 most other areas with a few warmer readings possible interior valleys. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (MARCH 31-APRIL 4)
Watching the timing of a cold front from the west March 31, leaning toward a mild to warm day overall with rain showers holding off until later. Fair, much cooler April 1. Watch for a passing storm to produce rain/mix/snow sometime April 2 to early April 3, another system with mix/rain showers later April 3 to early April 4 as temperatures run mostly below normal.

DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 5-9)
We’ll be near a boundary, so neither the weather nor the temperature forecast can be made with high confidence at this point. Leaning toward the cooler side of normal for temperatures with a couple precipitation threats.

Monday Forecast

7:20AM

DAYS 1-5 (MARCH 25-29)
A cold front is moving through the region without any fanfare, just cloudiness, early this morning and will set up a dry but chilly first few days of the week, followed by a warming trend later in the week as high pressure, which arrives from Canada early in the week, finds its way southeast of the region by late in the week. By late Friday though, we’ll have a cold front approaching from the northwest… Forecast details…
TODAY: Limited sun with lots of clouds morning. Increasing sun north to south midday on. Highs 45-52. Wind NW 5-15 MPH with higher gusts.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 25-32. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 25-32. Wind light N.
WEDNESDAY: Sunny. Highs 45-50 coast, 50-55 interior. Wind light E.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 27-34. Wind light SE.
THURSDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 48-55 except 55-62 interior valleys. Wind light S.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 40-47. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 48-55 South Coast, 56-63 elsewhere. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (MARCH 30-APRIL 3)
The March 30-31 weekend temperatures will depend on the position of a front nearby. For now I’m leaning toward the region being on the warmer side of it and staying with the ongoing forecast but it likely won’t be a totally sunny weekend, and a slight shift east and south of the position of that boundary will result in a vastly different temperature profile in the region. Much cooler air should be here to start April and there may be a period of rain which may end as snow April 1 with a slow clearing trend after.

DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 4-8)
We’ll be near a boundary, so neither the weather nor the temperature forecast can be made with high confidence at this point. Leaning toward the cooler side of normal for temperatures but limited precipitation.

Sunday Forecast

8:24AM

DAYS 1-5 (MARCH 24-28)
Quick update this morning. High pressure southwest of the region delivers milder air today. A cold front drops through from north to south early Monday returning cold air to the region early in the week, with a slow recovery in temperatures beginning during midweek as high pressure from Canada sinks slowly southward through the period and keeps it dry. Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 48-55 Cape Cod and immediate South Coast, 55-62 elsewhere. Wind W 5-15 MPH with gusts 20-30 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows 37-44. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Mostly cloudy start with a slight risk of brief light rain. Clearing north to south mid morning on. Sunny afternoon. Highs 45-52 early then falling back through the 40s. Wind NW 5-15 MPH with higher gusts.
MONDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 25-32. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 25-32. Wind light N.
WEDNESDAY: Sunny. Highs 45-50 coast, 50-55 interior. Wind light E.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 27-34. Wind light SE.
THURSDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 48-55 except 55-62 interior valleys. Wind light S.

DAYS 6-10 (MARCH 29-APRIL 2)
High pressure southeast of the region will result in above to much above normal temperatures March 29-31 based on current expecting timing of the next front from the west. Ocean-influenced areas will obviously have modified temperatures. It should turn much cooler and somewhat unsettled in the first couple days of April with a front moving through and low pressure moving in. Too early for details on that.

DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 3-7)
Cooler weather for the early days of April with a couple periods of unsettled weather likely.

Saturday Forecast

7:53AM

DAYS 1-5 (MARCH 23-27)
A little spring surprise for some locations in southern New England, namely central CT which had a persistent and fairly heavy band of overnight snow dump up to around 6 inches of snow over a fairly small elevated area. In one of those events nearly impossible to accurately forecast, we had a nearly stationary band held in place as it tried to move east by an expanding low pressure circulation hundreds of miles away, enhanced by an upper level disturbance and some lower level convergence not very well forecast by guidance, in at atmosphere slightly colder than forecast, at a higher elevations, and occurring during the dark hours instead of March daylight, which would have pretty much cut it in half, if not more. So there you have it. The rest of the region pretty much came in as expected, but the 1-3 inch amounts in higher elevations of northern RI, central MA, and southern NH was a late addition to my forecast after the initial wording that did not include numbers. In any case, with the exception of the areas that had over 3 inches, just about all of the snow will be vanishing during the day today and any left will be a memory by the middle of the day tomorrow, although today’s weather may not feel too much like snow melting weather as it will be blustery and chilly and even though we start out with lots of cloudiness and lingering snow showers, eventually dry air will work in and sun will increase. The expected warm-up for Sunday will occur but it will still be on the breezy side, though not nearly as windy as today is. Looking ahead, the cold front expected for Monday which had uncertain timing appears that it will be occurring on the earlier side, so the mildest part of the day will be very early and then the temperature should go down. It doesn’t look like the front will carry much more than cloudiness and just some light rain activity with it, and it will be well south of the area by Tuesday and Wednesday keeping any storminess moving along it from reaching this area, helped out by Canadian high pressure which will bring dry but chilly weather. Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly cloudy morning with lingering but diminishing snow showers with little additional accumulation. Increasing sun afternoon. Highs 45-52. Wind NW to W 15-25 MPH with gusts 35-45 MPH this morning, diminishing slightly this afternoon.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 25-32. Wind W 10-20 MPH with gusts 25-35 MPH, diminishing slightly overnight.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 48-55 Cape Cod and immediate South Coast, 55-62 elsewhere. Wind W 5-15 MPH with gusts 20-30 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows 37-44. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Mostly cloudy with scattered light rain morning. Clearing afternoon. Highs 45-52 early then falling back through the 40s. Wind NW 5-15 MPH with higher gusts.
MONDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 25-32. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Sunny. Highs 38-45. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 25-32. Wind light N.
WEDNESDAY: Sunny. Highs 45-50 coast, 50-55 interior. Wind light E.

DAYS 6-10 (MARCH 28-APRIL 1)
High pressure shifts south and southeast of New England and allows a warmer southwesterly air flow with fair weather and temperatures warming to above normal March 28-30, into March 31 but will have to watch for an approaching cold front from the west by then for its timing and potential to bring rain showers. It will be cooler in typical areas (Cape Cod, South Coast). By April Fools day, expect cooler conditions and a return to fair weather.

DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 2-6)
Cooler weather for the early days of April with a couple periods of unsettled weather likely.

Friday Forecast

7:30AM

DAYS 1-5 (MARCH 22-26)
Low pressure crosses southern New England this morning then heads through Maine and into eastern Canada this afternoon and tonight, and really expands through the Maritimes Saturday, doing that typical early spring kind of thing, pulling cold air out of Canada along with producing plenty of wind. So our wet weather of this morning will be replaced with rain to snow showers tonight and early Saturday, then eventual clearing. This will lead to a much nicer second half of the weekend as high pressure slides southwest of the region and pushes milder air into the region. But this will be very short-lived as a sharp cold front will drop out of Canada and turn Monday into an upside down temperature day along with at least lots of cloudiness and some potential precipitation, and finally a dry and cold day Tuesday.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Overcast with areas of fog morning as rain, and some higher elevation mix/snow briefly, tapers to isolated rain showers and patchy drizzle. Mostly cloudy afternoon with a risk of a passing rain shower. Highs 40-47. Wind backing from E to N to W 10-20 MPH, higher gusts especially this afternoon.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Scattered rain showers evening. Scattered to general snow showers overnight with minor accumulation possible, generally patchy coating to 1 inch amounts but 1-3 inch amounts in higher elevations of northern RI, central MA and southern NH. Lows 30-37. Wind W increasing to 10-20 MPH then shifting to NW with gusts 30-40 MPH.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy with snow showers likely morning. Partly sunny afternoon. Highs 40-47. Wind NW 15-25 MPH, gusts 30-45 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 30-37. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, gusts 25-35 MPH.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 50-57. Wind W 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 35-42. Wind W 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
MONDAY: Clouding over. Risk of a period of rain that may end as snow. Highs 48-55 but a quick temperature drop is possible later. Wind W 10-20 MPH eventually shifting to N.
MONDAY NIGHT: Cloudy evening, clearing overnight. Lows 20-27. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Sunny. Highs 36-43. Wind N 10-20 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (MARCH 27-31)
Look for mainly dry weather and a warming trend with temperatures starting the period near to below normal and peaking at much above normal around March 29 or 30 before a cold front knocks them back to near normal at the end of the period.

DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 1-5)
A cooler first few days of April with unsettled weather possible early and again late in the period.
