Monday Morning Weekly Weather Summary: Rounds of Rain

Good morning. As we all can see early spring is in full swing and that means a lot of up and down weather. This weekend was a good example of that where we saw heavy rain for most areas but a mountain snowstorm up in New England. Most ski areas got between 10-12 inches, not bad for early April.

Moving on to this week, it will be more ups and downs. 

Today will be nice with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the high 50's to low 60's.

Rain moves in late tonight however...

A low pressure center will pass to our west tomorrow bringing with it rain that is heavy at times. Tuesday is a total washout.

Things will then clear for Wednesday with sunny skies and temperatures in the low 60's. 

This does not last long however as more rain moves into the region Thursday. The Thursday could be quite impressive dropping another 1-2 inches of rain...

We have a low pressure system that will close off in the upper atmosphere. This means the storm is slow moving and the rain lingers keeping things cloudy with showers for Friday. You can see below the closed circulation at 18000 feet in the atmosphere with this system..

You can see even by Friday it is still lingering with showers...

This should clear out by the weekend allowing the skies to break up. Temperatures will be on the chilly side however. I expect this weekend to feature temperatures in the low to mid 50's due to this big low pressure system bringing in winds from the northwest on its departure.  You can see below temperatures at 5000 ft will be below freezing this weekend over the region...

Since we now have a strong spring sun it is much warmer at the surface. Like I said, temperatures will hit the low to mid 50's with cold mornings. 

Thats all for now, we will keep an eye on these storm systems as the week goes on.
