Breezy conditions and seasonal temperatures

Situation for Noon Eastern Time, Friday, March 22, 2013

An area of low pressure just offshore will slowly drift away today, allowing for clear skies to overspread our region. The low pressure brought some snow yesterday and slick conditions in areas closer to Cape Cod. Any chances for light snow will occur early this morning. By afternoon and evening, skies should become partly cloudy and winds will increase.

Since the departing low will somewhat stall near Nova Scotia this weekend, New England will experience a slow-moving surface pressure gradient. This will provide breezy conditions throughout the weekend. Given that dry air will accompany these winds, skies should remain clear and keep high temperatures in the lower 40s°F (5–7°C). The first weekend of spring will feel normal for this time of year, relieving from the messy snowstorm earlier this week.
