Just as soon as it feels like we’re making some progress, and jumping into Spring, Mother Nature is gonna throw it in reverse and back the truck up… way back. In fact temps/dew points go from an early June feel to a mid February brrr by Sunday afternoon.
While we don’t have the 50-65 mph wind gusts of yesterday, the wind is still active today out of the southwest with gusts 25-40mph. A scattering of showers and even a thunderstorm is possible today. While it won’t rain all day long, keep the umbrella on standby for those passing showers. In any thunderstorm, the main threat is locally heavy rain and gusty winds. There’s even a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms across western New England this afternoon (mainly west of I-91). Feels and sounds like late Spring, huh? Dew points today near 60… not exactly man bun or ponytail weather on the frizz factor, but not that far off, especially with the showers and wind.
While we dry out overnight and start Saturday dry, there’s more rain to come. Showers work back in tomorrow mid morning to mid afternoon, allowing for a wet and cooler day. A vigorous little storm along an Arctic front moves in overnight Saturday/early Sunday morning. That’ll allow rain showers to change to snow showers and squalls by Sunday morning. For a few hours in the early Sunday morning, the potential is there for even a coating to an inch or two of wet snow to stick (Non paved surfaces seeing the most stick). The winds howl too, gusting past 40-50 mph. Combine that with temps in the upper 30s, and a few choice words may be spoken about our "Spring" weather on Sunday.
Cold air is here to stay through Wednesday, and another round of wet snow and some rain, will likely move in Monday afternoon and Monday night.
Hey, at least it’s not 1997.
