If there’s one constant to expect this weekend, it’s change. We’ve got some big swings coming up over the next few days.
Showers end this evening as low pressure pulls away to the south and east of New England. High pressure builds into the region for Friday with a very mild airmass accompanying it on southwest to west winds. With sunshine during the day, we’ll see temperatures get well into the 60s for much of the area, with lower 70s likely at many locations away from the coast. Right along the coastline, especially the South Coast, a seabreeze is likely, and with water temperatures still in the 40s, we’ll see temperatures drop into the 40s right at the water’s edge, with 50s a short distance inland. Clouds will start to move in late in the day as low pressure begins to approach the Northeast. Rain will move in early Saturday morning along with much cooler conditions. In fact, Saturday does not look like a pleasant day, with occasional rain and temperatures only in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Sunday looks a little better, but with an upper-level low crossing the Northeast, we’ll still have some clouds and possibly a few showers, with temperatures again mainly in the 50s, which is actually above normal for mid-March. High pressure starts to build back in on Monday with partly to mostly sunny skies, but temperatures will be a few degrees cooler, right around where we should for the middle of March.
