Darn clouds. Today’s dearth of sunshine resulted in temperatures failing to surpass 50 for the eighth time in nine days. On the other hand, it was about five degrees warmer than yesterday. Tomorrow we take another five or so degree step towards April normalcy. However, we may have to dodge some rain showers in the process.
Through Tonight: Widely scattered showers are possible (30% chance) this evening and then once again toward morning. Otherwise, it’s dry. Under mostly cloudy skies, chilly overnight lows range from the mid-30s in the colder suburbs to the upper 30s downtown.
Tomorrow (Saturday): For one more day, we’ll have more clouds than sun and unfortunately, the chance of rain showers. We’re not looking at an all-day deluge but periods of showers are possible (40-50% chance), especially during the first half of the day. Highs are below average yet again, only managing 50-55 degrees.
Northeast snow: South of northern New England, where heavy snow is currently falling, the April Fools’ storm has generally underperformed. Snowfall reports from Albany’s National Weather Service Forecast Office generally indicate 1-5” has fallen in interior New York, western Connecticut, western Massachusetts and southern Vermont. But over northern New Hampshire and into Maine, 4-8” has fallen in many locations and it’s still snowing. Winter storm warnings remain in effect for 8-12” snow totals with some locally higher amounts.
