Minor St. Patrick’s hiccup, otherwise a nice stretch upcoming
Beautiful day across southern New England on Thursday with bright skies and mild temperatures. We hit 55 degrees at T.F. Green!
Clouds have moved in from the north as a warm front passes through northern New England. This passage will keep daytime highs in the 50s through Saturday.
After a brief clearing towards daybreak, skies will once again become overcast for your St. Patrick’s Day.
A storm across the nation’s midsections is currently bringing rain, snow and severe weather. However, as that storm system reaches the east coast, it will not yield much.
Expect a few passing light to moderate rain showers after 6pm Friday, lasting through about 3am on Saturday. Skies will begin to clear just in time for the Providence St. Patrick’s 5K and parade on Saturday morning.
While it will be mild into the early afternoon, temps will begin to fall sharply with an increasing cold northwest wind. By nightfall, it will feel like the 20s across the area, and by Sunday morning it will feel like the teens! Expect a cold sunshine with blustery conditions on Sunday.
Things will moderate come Monday, and it looks like the first week of Spring – which begins at 5:24 PM Monday – will be very nice!
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy skies with the low near 34.
FRIDAY: Mainly overcast with a passing shower after 6pm. Showers will linger through 3am. Low to mid 50’s for the high.
WEEKEND: Clouds give way to sun Saturday morning. Highs low 50’s. Temps fall quickly at night with wind chills in the teens by Sunday morning. Cold and blustery during the day Sunday with highs in the 30s.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny with highs near 50. SPRING BEGINS AT 5:24 PM
TUESDAY: Fair skies and a bit warmer. Highs in the low 50s.
