Never thought I would be so glad to see a month come to an end,but Feb. is one of those month.Its the shortest month of the year,but it appeared to go on forever.Little sunshine,almost 5 inches of precip,one huge blizzard,over 1 inch of rain yesterday and not a whole lot of sun.March is not going to start off very sunny either,but right now no big storms in sight.We do have to watch a coastal storm mid next week,but right now looks to stay far enough south to have little or no effect."We have to watch it"
So meteorological spring begins tomorrow.This time of year it doesn't mean much.Won't see a lot warmer temps until at least mid month.Last year was an exception,it was exceptionally warm all month.
So a rainy day for southern new england while our neighbors to the north get a pretty heavy snowfall.The heaviest precip will be this morning,but with blocking out in the Atlantic, clearing will be agonizingly slow. Don't expect to see too much sun right through the weekend and we will be below normal for temps.
One more day of quiet weather and then that midwest storm starts effect us here in New England.
For the most part it will be rain in southern new england,but higher elevations and western portions on up into new hampshire and Vermont,Maine could see a sizable snowfall.The problem is things won't clear out quickly as blocking has established itself in the atlantic so storms will not be moving east very fast.It will stay unsettled right through the week with periods of showers gradually changing to snow showers by Thrusday night.Weekend looks dry,but we will be watching a coastal storm that should stay out to sea,but something to watch if the blocking continues out in the Atlantck
Final four days of the month,and it has been a memorable month.We've had a lack of winter all last winter,and pretty easy for the first couple of months this year,and then Feb. decided to remind us it is winter.A couple more inches of snow last night.After periods of snow all yesterday afternoon that didn't amount to anything,it cooled enough last night to pick up a couple of inches although pavements only had a coating on it.
So we have a couple of quiet days ahead before another wintery mess moves in Tuesday night through Wednesday.It should be cold enough for snow to start tomorrow night and some areas especially higher elevations could get significant accumulations before a gradual changing over to mix and rain.
