Forecast: Tranquil Weather Ahead

As I write the forecast for the next several days, I am struck by how little eventful weather there is to talk about after the volatile weather of the past week.

The rain and warmth of the recent past has all but erased the snow cover across so much of New England. Typically skiing would be at its best right now, but many areas are struggling to stay open.

Although you’ll see some colder air in the forecast, generally it’s a very mild forecast and at times typical of April.

There are several small pieces of energy in the form of fronts that will move through the region between now and the middle of next week. I don’t see any big storms in our immediate future and it’s honestly a good time to begin spring clean-up.

The next chance of precipitation comes later Tuesday night or Wednesday. There might be some snow or rain with these systems, but  presently they don’t appear large.

While you might think it’s too early to start doing yard work, it’s actually not. There isn’t any snow in sight and if we do end up with some more, which is possible, cleaning up will have you that much more ahead.

I am reluctant to declare winter over, I still see some cold coming next month, but time for prolonged winter weather is running out.
