Temps Leap on This Leap Year

What a finish to the weekend!  Temps in the 50s to near 60 with quite a bit of sunshine.  Ugh, the weekends just go by way to fast! 

While the weekend has passed us by, the milder air hasn’t.  Temps this morning start off in the 40s and will jump into the 50s to near 60 by lunch time!  By lunch time, clouds also increase and the chance for a shower or two commences.  I don’t expect a lot of rain this afternoon, but occasionally, a passing shower does zip on by.  The breeze is active too, gusting 25-30mph out of the southwest.  Today will be the 35th day in meteorological winter (Dec-Feb) that we’ve hit 50 degrees or higher! 

Temps cool tomorrow, but it’s still a nice day for March 1st.  More lamb-like than lion-like with highs in the mid 40s under a mainly sunny sky. 

The next storm slides in tomorrow night with rain breaking out in the evening and continuing overnight.  It may even start as a little bit of a wintry mix in northern Worcester County and southwest New Hampshire, but even there it’ll mostly be a rain event.  Rain and gusty winds peak in the predawn hours Wednesday and showers continue into the morning commute.  Expect wet roads and temps in the 40s and 50s Wednesday morning.  By Wednesday afternoon, we’ll start to dry out as temps go drop from the 50s, back to the 30s. 

Late week is much colder as highs hold in the lower 30s.  We’ll keep an eye on an ocean storm to our south, but as of now, it appears too far south to bring us snow.  We’ll keep an eye on it!
