Another week of ups and downs

3698 weather
Situation for Noon Eastern Time, Tuesday, March March, 2011

This week will again be a bit of a weather roller coaster as a few passing weather systems impact New England. After Sunday’s four-inch snow accumulation was washed away by over half an inch of rain on Monday, the remainder of the week will bring a few more weather extremes. After a relatively normal day today, gusty winds from the southwest will bring warm air to the area tomorrow. However, a cold front tomorrow night will then immediately knock temperatures into the mid-teens (°F).

Cambridge hasn’t been the only place with unordinary weather this week: temperatures were below zero in the northern plains region this weekend, and parts of northern California experienced a snowstorm. Today, another storm could dump up to a foot of snow in the Pacific Northwest.
