Easter Weekend Forecast

How does a return to the Mid 50's sound? The next three days should climb into the mid to upper 50's across all of Southern New England (except some of the higher elevations).  There will be an outside shot of 60 before some rain moves in Sunday afternoon/evening.

A sprinkle or a light shower is possible this afternoon.  Otherwise skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with a few breaks of sun.  Temperatures will look like this

Lows drop to the mid 30's tonight. Colder in higher elevations.

Highs will be in the lower to mid 50's on Saturday.  It should also be a mostly sunny day with light winds.  Pick of the weekend.

Overnight lows drop into the low 30's/upper 20's in the cold regions.

Easter Sunday
Some rain will be working in from the west.  The models are timed different.  I would expect the clouds to be building around noon after a great start.  Any Easter egg hunts would be best in the morning/early afternoon.  Temperatures will be in the 50's again with a stronger west wind.  Here is Sunday at 8 PM

That is right on the doorstep.  Here is the total rainfall I and the Weather Prediction Center are expecting
through Wednesday (another burst of rain Monday evening is likely)
WPC 5 day precip totals
Enjoy the holiday weekend.  I'll post some more this weekend on the upcoming Hurricane Season and another long range discussion.
