Temps stay in 40's during the week, 50's this weekend

This weather pattern has been stubborn. Over the next 7-10 days our weather will feel more winter like than spring like.  The trade off is this Sunday (Easter for many) will be nice.  Here is a quick outlook for the next few days.

Current Conditions/Observations
The snowstorm that brought a record 18.5 inches to Springfield. IL managed to stay south of New England. 
03/26/13 445 am Water Vapor Sat
Indianapolis recorded one of its biggest March snowfall's on record
NWS Indianapolis snowfall reports 
Now cities in the Midwest are creeping up the "all-time" snowfall list just as some here in New England.  Speaking of New England, temperatures are ok this morning.

Temperatures will moderate into the upper 40's and even the low 50's in a few areas.  Boston should see 50 or be very close today

Here is the surface chart.  One can see how close the storm really is, yet it is just far enough away.
WPC surface analysis 330 am
Winds will be blustery and out of the north today.  Here are the current winds as of 5 am
NCEP RTMA 10 m winds 5 am
Tonight lows drop to the upper 20's/low 30's.  They rebound to around 50 again tomorrow.  The winds will also relax a little bit.  On Thursday I am still expecting some isolated rain showers.  I do not expect them to amount to much.
5 day precip totals (WPC)
Our next rain threat is next Monday New England.  A warm up this weekend followed by rain- fairly typical for early spring.  That's all for now, more later.
