Winter still holding on

After a period of several beautiful, warmer days, the weather has again taken a colder turn. A strong cold front pushed through the eastern U.S. yesterday, bringing yet another cold airmass down from Canada into the continental U.S. With the cold air come chances of wintry weather. The most significant chance of winter weather is Saturday, when a low pressure system sliding east through the mid-Atlantic states and offshore could bring several inches of snow to either the mid-Atlantic or the Northeast. However, as it is April, it would be difficult to get accumulating snow during the daytime. It may not seem like it yet, but spring is certainly on our doorstep. Boston has not recorded more than 1” of snow after April 10 since 1996. We’ll have to wait and see if spring arrives next week and cranks up the CPW weather machine.
