No summer in sight; cold spring in store

After a week of relatively clear weather, the clouds will return this afternoon and will stick around at least through the weekend. Temperatures should rise into the 40s, which will feel balmy compared to yesterday and this morning. Don’t get too used to it, though — long-range forecasts are predicting a much colder spring than we had last year.

On the bright side, the huge storm that is moving through the Ohio Valley towards New England will probably miss Cambridge. With the potential to dump more precipitation in just a few days than most regions usually receive in the entire month of March, this storm will likely cause major flooding.
