Spring Break != Spring Weather

Although Monday marked the official First Day of Spring, the Northeast appears to have a different idea about what that means than the rest of us. Get all the sun you need today because this weekend is going to be perpetually overcast with some rain and snow. If you're getting out of town for the break, try to bring some spring-like weather with you when you come back! For those staying in Beantown for the week, you can expect temperatures around 40°F (5°C) during the day and relatively low wind speeds.

This day in weather history: between March 20–23, 1913, a series of tornadoes swept through the Great Plains, destroying millions of dollars worth of property and resulting in over 250 fatalities. The most destructive of the storms, known as the Easter Sunday tornado, hit Omaha, Nebraska 104 years ago to this day.
