DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 3-7)
A large low pressure circulation cut off from the main jet stream will be the primary driver of our weather during the next 5 days, but its influence, while keeping us on the cooler side, will be to keep us on the drier side too. It will drift westward through the Canadian Maritime Provinces this weekend, turning south into the waters east of New England by Monday before turning back to the east and drifting away toward the middle of next week. A weakening disturbance will send some clouds into the region while its in the process of being torn apart by the larger low to the east tonight into early Sunday. So while the weekend sees temperatures below to near normal, it will be dry. If we are to see any precipitation threat it would be Monday as a lobe of moisture from the offshore low gets near the coast at its closest pass.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 47-54. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy. Lows 25-32. Wind NW under 10 MPH.
SUNDAY: Partly to mostly sunny. Highs 50-57. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.

MONDAY NIGHT: Variably cloudy. Lows 35-42. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 48-55. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 36-43. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 48-55 coast, 55-62 inland. Wind variable up to 10 MPH with coastal sea breezes.
DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 8-12)
Blocking pattern weakens enough for some additional eastward movement of features affecting our weather – first with high pressure and dry weather early in the period, then approaching low pressure and potential unsettled weather mid to late period.
DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 13-17)
Blocking may redevelop but again we may be on the drier side of the block with limited precipitation chances and no temperature extremes.
