After our brutal winter, we've really turned a corner so far in May with several bouts of truly Summer-like air. We've already seen a few days in the 90s and some humidity to go along with the heat.

It looks like we've finally turned that corner. Yes, we've had a few mild days sprinkled in here and there this spring, but it looks like a more prolonged "warm" pattern is developing for us in the Northeast. Temperatures should remain above average into mid-May. Yes, we'll probably have a few cooler days here and there, but at least it's just a few cooler days among plenty of warmer days! That's all for now. Enjoy!

I hope you've been enjoying the mild weather in recent weeks because the all too familiar pattern that we dealt with for much of the winter is setting up again.
A deep low pressure system will develop over Ontario and Quebec this week and then remain in place for at least the next 7 to 10 days as a blocking pattern sets up across the country. This will ensure us an extended period of chilly, unsettled weather.
Temperatures will turn progressively cooler each day and by Thursday and Friday, highs will struggle to climb out of the lower 40s. Overnight lows will dip below freezing in many areas.
A series of disturbances rotating around the main upper level low will bring scattered showers and gusty winds each day through Friday. Some flakes will mix with the rain at times but little accumulation is expected.
As mentioned, it doesn't look like this pattern will break until the first week in May so keep the sweaters out and pack away the shorts and t-shirts for awhile.

It seems we have finally turned the page! We've gone from looking at every single run of every single model in search of "the big snowstorm" to looking for the warmth. In typical Spring fashion, we do have some warmer weather in the forecast, but nothing prolonged. Mid-week is kind of gross, with a chilly rain on Wednesday, followed by a less chilly rain on Thursday, and a milder rain on Friday. Temps should hit the mid and upper 60s on Friday ahead of a system that will drag down another shot of cooler air for the weekend. But, instead of these cooler shots of air being in the teens and 20s, we're now only falling into the 40s! Woohoo!
This really appears like it'll be the trend over the next few weeks, possibly month - nothing prolonged in the "warm weather" department, but rather warm-ups ahead of a storm system, followed by troughiness. So, enjoy these bouts of milder air when they come along, which they will, tempered by cooler air to follow, like Friday and Monday!

As much as I'd like to tell you it's going to be sunny and 70 for Easter Sunday, it looks like you'll be dodging rain and snow showers during those egg hunts instead. A stationary front will set up south of the Thruway and as a series of weak disturbances move along this boundary, rain and snow will be the result.
