Clouds linger but a dry pattern is straight ahead.

Clouds linger past sunset, partial clearing near dawn

There was a good deal of snow at elevations higher than 3000 feet overnight into Wednesday morning.  The wet snow was fairly widespread in our high spots, but little impact was noticed below 2500 feet.  In other words, the snow was very beneficial for the ground as it will slowly melt and soak into the soils, which is a fine recipe for spring. 

The cloud cover today is expected to linger into the night before slowly fading as the night moves along.  The visible satellite imagery has a very expansive range of cloud cover from the Great Lakes to the Mid-Atlantic region. This will be tough to scour out as the temperatures are relatively cool.  The moisture will be available into the morning but the breezy scenario should help to clear the skies. 

Over the next three days there will be little in the way of cloud cover ash high pressure moves overhead.  The large lumbering low off the coast of New England will stall out there for a while allowing the high to maintain a lock on the Commonwealth until at least Saturday. 

High temperatures will continue to warm as the week comes to a close and we head into the weekend.  In fact, the highs will continue to climb as we move into the middle of next week.  Expect to see clouds return to the area on Sunday with a slight chance for some showers.  Rain chances are in the forecast from Sunday until Wednesday as the month of April lives up to the reputation of April… “April Showers Bring May Flowers”.

Stay Safe and healthy.
