PM Update: Spring weather in full bloom
A bit of a summer preview... minus the high humidity
We've said goodbye to the clouds and cool weather and hello to a warming trend that will likely push many to and past 80 in the coming days. Meanwhile, winds continue to blow in the wake of the strong coastal system that plagued the northeast through last night. But highs rising through the upper 60s to near 70 made the winds bearable and they will soon be just a memory as well.
Through Tonight: Temperatures fall to around 60 near sunset which should make for nice Cherry Blossom viewing. Winds also diminish quite a bit this evening, before becoming light overnight. Otherwise it's mostly clear and pretty calm, with lows dropping to the low-and-mid 40s in the suburbs to around 50 downtown.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Today's pleasant weather turns awesome tomorrow as the mercury climbs even higher and winds become little to no issue. Afternoon temperatures will make a run to the mid-and-upper 70s under sunny skies.
Northeast flooding: While we mostly missed out from the large Nor'easter that sat off the coast through last night, the same can't be said for places to our north. Rhode Island was particularly hard hit, with up to about 10" of rain falling over the course of the last few days -- on top of the now-record rainfall that had already fallen this month. Schools, roads -- including I-95 -- and businesses are closed today as floodwaters continue to rise.
