Today's Weather: Mostly Dry And Seasonably Cool

Now that we are past the middle of the month, most of us look forward to the warmer weather that lies ahead.

Monday will bring seasonable weather, with a high of about 44 degrees and plenty of sunshine to start the week, though some clouds are in the mix as well.

From now until April 1, our normal highs rise from 46 to 50.

However, warming will likely be a slow process, as the jet stream continues to dive south out of eastern Canada. Weak disturbances within this steering pattern will move across the Boston area this week, some producing just clouds, but a stronger front will bring a period of wet weather on Thursday.

In general, temperatures will be where they should be starting the week — slightly below normal, edging up a bit prior to the front, then cooling off again as we head into next weekend.

Although in past years we’ve seen March deliver some potent snowstorms, there are no big systems showing up in the foreseeable future. Typically, the northwest to southeast oriented jet stream that we’ll have this week brings relatively dry but cool conditions to the region.

Today: Sunshine with some clouds mixing in. High 44.

Tonight: Partly cloudy, chilly. Lows: mid 20s.
