DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 1-5)
April arrives with a blocking pattern still in place. This pattern takes low pressure passing south of the region today and forces it to do a broad anticyclonic loop east of New England Thursday and Friday, which means lobes of moisture from it will back into the region Thursday into Friday with wet weather. Any rainfall is beneficial as it goes to lessening the deficit we have, reducing brush fire danger, and cutting down early-season pollen. Things will start to move the more traditional west-to-east way again when we get to the weekend, which will be dry, starting chilly then warming up slightly as a small area of high pressure moves across the region then offshore. A weak frontal boundary moving in from the west by Sunday night may trigger a rain shower.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 6-10)
A little more west to east movement may continue in the pattern with milder conditions overall and some unsettled weather mainly the middle 3 days of this period.
DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 11-15)
Low confidence again but still leaning a little more away from blocking and a milder more progressive pattern at this time.
