The base of a strong, upper level trough has edged off the eastern seaboard as of early this morning. This time of the year much-below-average cold usually can only last for about a day. And while it still will be several degrees below average this afternoon, with abundant March sunshine, it won't feel all that bad. The upcoming week will feature temperatures that will be near to above normal at most times, though there will be several chances for precipitation.
—A weak cool front will pass on Monday morning, brining the risk of a few showers. By Monday afternoon, a strong westerly, downsloping wind will allow for a mild feel as clouds break for some sunshine.
—A clipper-type system will dive out of the Great Lakes on Tuesday.
—Wednesday, while chillier than usual for this time of the year, should be the pick day of the week with high pressure in control. Expect sunshine, light winds and generally tranquil weather conditions.
—High pressure will slide off the coast for Thursday, allowing a milder, southerly flow to develop. While much of the day will probably be dry and feature sunshine, there is still a chance for a shower later in the day or at night as a front approaches from the west.
—There are model differences on Friday, mainly with regard to timing. Given the GFS tendency to be a bit too progressive and the idea that the cold front will pressing up against a strong Atlantic Ridge, thinking is that the boundary will be north of the region much of the time on Friday… allowing for very mild conditions and the chance
for some precipitation.
—A cool down next weekend, but not nearly as extreme as this weekend
—Storms look to continue to cut to the west to start the following week, leading to mild southwesterly flows at times
Have a good day!
