PM Update: Winter's Off-Season Appearance
A little warmer Wednesday, but still not springlike
Today left a lot of people wondering where spring went. Temperatures struggled to get much higher than the 40s in most places and wind chills were kept even lower on a gusty northwest wind. On top of that, some locations even saw snow falling from the sky from time to time! While it's certainly April, you may need to occasionally glance at the calendar to remind yourself.
Tonight: This should be the coldest night of this stretch and some should see temperatures drop below freezing despite occasional cloudiness. Temperatures should range from 30-35 with some suburbs falling into the upper 20s. Since the growing season has started, you may want to tend to any sensitive outdoor plants.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Temperatures will moderate a bit on Wednesday under variably cloudy skies. Look for readings to climb mostly into the mid 50s across the area. Winds will once again be gusty from the west.

Mt. Redoubt Pictures: Alaska's Mount Redoubt began a series of eruptions back on March 22. Boston Globe's "The Big Picture" has compiled an amazing series of images from the various recent eruptions that are worth viewing. The alert level was dropped back to orange from red yesterday, but more explosive events are possible. Follow the Alaska Volcano Observatory on twitter, and while you're there, check out our feed.
