Discussion

A weak disturbance will be passing through the region early today with clouds and the clouds should linger during the afternoon as well along with chilly temperatures for this time of year. High pressure area will shift off the east coast later in the day and this will open the door for a warm frontal passage on Wednesday and then temperatures should spike on Thursday. In fact, temperatures are likely to soar to 70 degrees on Thursday – the warmest day of the week – but the mild conditions will also be accompanied by showers and perhaps even a thunderstorm. It’ll turn colder at the end of the week following a strong cold frontal passage and this overall colder-than-normal weather pattern is likely to continue right into April.
