FORECAST IN DETAIL
Our cooler-(and drier)-than-normal March continues through the balance of this week. The weekend warm-up keeps getting delayed — chances of getting 60+ degrees is diminishing, or at least waiting, until perhaps Monday. Either way, the warmth looks to be brief early next week.
Today (Tuesday): As the New England blizzard fires up, we are left with the remnants, mainly in the form of wind. It’s windy and cold under mostly sunny skies. Highs range in the low to mid-40s, but winds from the northwest at 15 to 20 mph and gusts to 25 mph make it feel like the 30s … not like a typical March. Confidence: High
Tonight: Partly cloudy with lingering breezes as temperatures drop into the mid-20s in the outer suburbs to low to mid-30s in the city. Winds blow from the west at 5 to 15 mph. Confidence: High
Tomorrow (Wednesday): An upper-level disturbance rolls through, causing morning sunshine to fade under partly cloudy skies by midday and the afternoon, along with the chance for flurries or light rain showers. Highs reach the low to mid-40s, but clouds could limit our duration at those peak temperatures. Winds still blow from the west at 10 to 15 mph, with gusts into the 20 mph-to-30 mph range at times. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow night: Partly to mostly cloudy. Lows 25-33. Light breezes. Confidence: Medium-High
A LOOK AHEAD
Thursday features mostly sunny skies as highs reach closer to 50, which is still lower than normal. A few clouds are possible Thursday night as lows drop into the 20s to low 30s. Confidence: Medium-High
Friday brings another chunk of modified Canadian air. Look for partly to mostly sunny skies, with breezy conditions and temperatures getting only up into the cooler 40s again. Friday night lows range through the 20s under mostly clear skies again. Confidence: Medium
St. Patrick’s Day Saturday is still more on the cool side, with partly to mostly sunny skies as highs reach the 40s. Partly cloudy Saturday night with lows in the 20s and 30s, while Sunday tries to go warmer with highs in the 50s and the possibility of a stray shower. Confidence: Low-Medium
SNOW POTENTIAL INDEX
A daily assessment of the potential for at least 1 inch of snow in the next week, on a 0-10 scale.
1/10 (↓): Possible coastal storm a week from today, but this looks like another New England special.
