Happy Spring Equinox!
Starting tomorrow we will have more daylight than nighttime darkness for the next 6 months. Sound good? It should for it means our temperatures will climb steadily until peaking in July/August. Long way to go though. But winter is just about done: One more cold shot Wed/Thu and then I say winter-like weather is over. There will be cool days. Might even be one with a few snowflakes flying about, but over-all it’s done by this weekend.
Weak front moving through late today and tonight. Arctic high pressure oozes in Tuesday into Wednesday giving us two mostly sunny but cold days Wed and Thu. A warm front then approaches on Friday/Friday night with a chance for a shower or two. Most of the activity should be to our north and west.
Saturday is a potentially a beautifully mild/warm day, if the warm front lift north of us and the sun comes out. The two go together, however, if the warm front gets hung up, which is a good possibility, then it stays cloudy and much colder than I currently think it will be. Right now, I do see the sun coming out, and temperatures surging to 60 or higher, but in extreme northern PA and NY where warm front stalls, the temperatures will hang in the 40s and even some 30s in NY. So a shift south of 75 miles of this front could make a significant change in the current forecast.
This front will then sag south on Sunday, providing us with a wet and cooler day. This wet weather will last into Monday. It will stay unsettled into the middle of next week.
