Tuesday will get off to a cloudy and damp start. A cold front will be pushing off the coast. Overnight showers will be ending at dawn, but the roads will be starting off a bit damp. Clouds will stick around for most of the morning hours. Drying NW winds will pick up during the afternoon. Skies will increase with sunshine from west to east during the afternoon with highs in the 50's and Lwr 60's. There will be the risk of even a pop up shower along the Seacoast during the afternoon. Skies will be mostly clear Tuesday night with lows dropping down to near freezing. High pressure builds in for the midweek with sunshine and highs remaining in the 50's and lwr 60's for Wednesday. By Thursday, high pressure slides south of New England and wraps in a warmer SW wind flow into the region with highs in the 50's and Lwr 60's. A cold front will approach Friday with the risk of scattered showers and the potential for an embedded thunderstorm. High pressure returns for the weekend with seasonally cool temps in the 50's to near 60. The North country will have a bit of a chill to shake off once again. Forecasts of a warmer than normal end to April may have to be changed. The blocking pattern which has provided all the sunny weather as of late is shifting east a bit, but still remains. It looks like a more persistent trough will be remaining in the Northeast to end the month into early May which will help to prevent any big warm ups from shifting into the Northeast. That is not to say we won't have any nice mild weather, but any big warm up may have to wait a little while longer...at least into May!
