Can you believe that we’re at the end of April already? That means it’s almost to the time of year where it’s safe to push your snowbrush away! We’ve had accumulating snow into early/mid-May before, so it’s not quite that time yet, but we’re getting close.
We’ll start the week on a chilly note as high pressure builds in from the north, so you may need a heavier jacket as you venture out Monday morning. You may even need to scrape your windshield if you’re out earlier enough, as there will likely be some patchy frost out there as well. Clouds will start to stream in during the afternoon as the high moves out and our next system approaches from the west.
Rain will develop late Monday night as a weak system moves toward the area. The rain won’t be heavy and should be done by early afternoon, with some clearing possible late in the day. A cold front trailing the system will stall out just south of New England, and then remain there for much of the week.
The latter half of the week looks to be cool and damp. Waves of low pressure will ride along that front, bringing in rainfall at times. We won’t be raining the entire time, but it will be mainly cloudy with some sunny breaks. With the front to our south, we’ll stay on the cool side around here, with daytime temperatures generally in the 50s to lower 60s., which is a little below normal for early May. Saturday may turn out to be a decent day with some sunshine and and milder temperature. However, a stronger storm will moves toward the area on Sunday, with some steadier and heavier rain more likely.
