April showers will
linger this week

The last week of April will have spotty showers as the main weather concern. Through Thursday night we may experience raindrops at almost any time, day or night. A slow-moving low pressure system located in the northern Midwest is responsible for the wet and cloudy weather today. By Wednesday this system will be “pushed” slightly north as another storm system forms in the southern Midwest. But as Thursday rolls around, the new storm will swing a cold front through New England, bringing heavy rain and thunderstorms. The weather through this week will be quite warmer than last week, with highs reaching 70°F (21°C) and lows staying in the 50s°F (10–15°C). The warm weather will take shape when a warm front edges its way northward into Canada today. A flow of Gulf moisture will also become apparent with the warm front’s passage.
