Low pressure will be tracking well south of New England for our Saturday but it won't be sending any rain or snow our way. All the moisture associated with it will stay south of New England near the storm's center. By this evening the storm will strengthen as it passes Cape Cod, but all that it will mean for us is that the winds will increase while dragging down colder air from Canada. So, we can expect a good deal of sunshine this weekend, we will also have chilly temperatures with gusty winds that will make it feel colder than it is. That's right we're still talking about wind chills!
So, for today we'll see sunshine mixing with some high level clouds during the afternoon with temperatures in the 40s. The breeze will be increasing later in the day. Overnight those winds continue to become rather gusty (from the NW at 25-30mph at times) and with lows dropping to the teens and 20s it will feel about 10 degrees colder! Sunday will still be windy and even though it will be sunny, highs will remain in the upper 30s north and low 40s south. By Sunday night the winds will be dying down.
As we move into Monday a warm front will cross the region bringing our temperatures back closer to normal levels and that will be followed by a cold front Tuesday. These fronts will serve to produce some rainy weather from Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning. If the precipitation comes in quick enough and reaches us Monday morning then it will still be cold enough for snow to occur north of the Lakes region that will change to rain during the day. After the rain moves out Tuesday morning High pressure will follow for the midweek bringing another round of slightly cooler, yet dry spring air with highs near 50 in the sunshine.
