PM Update: Cold tonight, seasonable tomorrow
Today's highs in the upper 40s to near 50 felt extra chilled thanks to sustained winds as high as 15-20 mph with some gusts near or past 30 mph. But, when you think about all the cold and wind the past few months, it's not too bad out there. We've got a cold (for the time of year) night ahead, and a fairly decent day on tap tomorrow, but enjoy it while you can, because more clouds and rain are penciled in on the schedule as we head into and past midweek.
Through Tonight: Gusty breezes of earlier dwindle into the night. Mixed with mostly clear skies, that sets the table for some decent radiational cooling. Lows should range from the mid-20s (perhaps a low 20s somewhere) in the suburbs to around 30 downtown. This is about 5 degrees below "normal" for this time of year.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Lots of sun, and not a lot of wind. Overall this is a fairly classic early-March day, with some increase in clouds (mainly high level) throughout. Highs should shoot for the low-and-mid 50s, which is near or just above average depending on location.
Northern New England Snow: Heated local debates about yesterday's snowflakes aside, the storm system that gave us lots of rain has dumped on northern New England, where some places are nearing all time seasonal records. As of 1 p.m., with snow still falling, Burlington International Airport in Vermont had recorded 23.3" of snow -- the largest March storm and one of the biggest ever on record there. Even locals across the area who are used to big storms are calling it "epic." How much is epic? Check out the totals from NWS Burlington!
