Temperatures may climb into the mid-60s today, but winter lurks around the corner.
When the storms start moving away, winds will begin to whip across the region, possibly gusting as high as 50 to 55 miles per hour in the late afternoon and early evening Wednesday, Rowland said. It’s looking quiet but chilly for the Yard Goats home opener today at Dunkin Donuts Park in Hartford.
We’re still experiencing the leftovers of March’s weather pattern that favors pulses of colder-than-average weather swinging down from Canada and into the eastern U.S. Scattered valley rain could mix with a little snow and there could be a few isolated thunderstorms Saturday night. Near and south of highway 10, 5 to 8 inches are possible with localized higher amounts.
The next couple of days will feature cooler than normal highs, but the thing to look out for is the return of snow – possibly from 2 to 4 inches for Long Island on Saturday.
Ms Kirkwood said the snow is pushing its way northwards, heading across the north Midlands, into northern England, Northern Ireland and southern Scotland.
Weather’s Carol Kirkwood warned: “If you are travelling this morning do expect some disruption, albeit transient for many of us”.
NEXT WEEK: Monday we’re watching yet another system.
Snow and rain are likely Sunday, along with a high around 35. However, it’s too early to get a good handle on how much snow could accumulate. Presently, I would say accumulation will be on the lighter side on the coastline because of where we are in April. As a result, Accuweather predicted that most of what does accumulate on Saturday will be on grassy surfaces and vehicle tops. Most of those cities will probably lean toward the lower end of that range. The bad news is (if you’re not a fan of winter like weather) it turns cold again Friday with a chance of snow returning to the forecast.
SATURDAY: Snow/mix possible in spots, but otherwise mostly cloudy.
Wednesday: Partly sunny with a high near 64 degrees.
Tonight: Mostly cloudy with an 80 percent chance for additional snow and colder.
