Forecast: Sunshine Dominates The Weekend Forecast

I'm finally able to give a pretty nice weekend weather forecast for the first time in quite a while. We actually don't have any rain in the forecast, nor do we have any snow. There will be a bit of wind this afternoon and the temperature will only be in the lower 50s, so it will feel a bit chilly at times, especially if you're not in the sunshine.

We can thank high pressure building into New England for the next several days for the change in the weather pattern. I expect lawns to get greener and more flowers to open up this weekend with plenty of sunshine and temperatures into the 50s.

Early next week temperatures will get into the lower 60s along with sunshine. Monday and Tuesday are my picks for the week. On Wednesday, a new storm system approaches the area but unlike those which have preceded, it this one will only bring rain. April is one of our wettest months of the year and hopefully this will set us up for a very nice and no drought summer.
