Fading Snowbanks

 Despite it being Monday, yesterday was sweet—brilliant sunshine, mild temps, evening daylight (Dang it feels good to be a gangsta!) and I think we can keep the good vibrations going for a few more days as this mild pattern sticks. Only issue is a glancing blow from a storm passing south of New England later today & tonight.

This storm is already tossing some clouds into New England (pretty sunrise) and those clouds will be joined by siblings through the day but despite the clouds most of the day is dry. A few sprinkles are likely near the end of the evening commute and then some rain showers later this evening and overnight…but again..rain showers, no snow or ice as temps hover in the mid 30s. Most towns pick up .25″ or rain or less tonight.

Hump Day starts with clouds but sunshine develops by midday and then sunshine combined with a mild morning will easily send temps into the 50s by afternoon. #GoodByeSnow. After 3 solid days of mild temps and one overnight of rain/fog most towns will have lost close to a foot of snow by early Thursday morning!

The end of the week is cooler but not bitterly so as daytime temps are near 40 both Thursday & Friday. The lack of arctic air means the next storm–slated for Saturday will offer both snowflakes and raindrops. Too soon for accurate snowfall accumulation thoughts.

Enjoy the melt–watch out for the expanding puddles.
