Today's Weather: Clouds, Some Sun And A Spot Shower

We knew Thursday would be a wild day of weather, with a strong storm system developing over New England and then heading on up into Maine. While we did have some heavy rain and even small hail and gusty winds, it was nothing compared to the heavy snow that occurred across much of Maine. There, they saw a couple of inches at the coastline, but a foot or more of snow in the higher terrain and up north.

Friday will be a much more tranquil day, although not without the chance of precipitation. Although there's a little bit of sunshine in the morning, clouds will build by the afternoon, and some of these could yield a quick shower or even a little thunderstorm.

Temperatures average in the middle 50s this time of year, but we're going to be around 50 degrees on Saturday, so we can call it slightly below normal. For Sunday, it's more sunshine. If you're taking Easter stroll, temperatures during the afternoon will be between 55 and 60.

The next storm system arrives on Monday, bringing rain and milder temperatures to the region. But it's a fast-mover, and we're back to sunshine for Tuesday, beginning a stretch of dry weather.
