Quiet end to the work week; tracking some ‘green’ for St. Patrick’s weekend
That would be green on the radar the title is referring to!
Yesterday’s Nor’easter is still spinning offshore, ushering in lots of clouds and keeping things windy, but will finally pull away tonight.
We picked up a whopping 0.1″ of snow at T.F. Green during the storm, which still has us on pace for the 5-th least snowy winter on record. While we have gotten plenty of snow in late March and early April in years past, time is certainly running out.
Nice day expected on Thursday with sun giving way to some clouds and less blustery conditions.
Friday will be a mainly overcast day with a few passing sprinkles or light showers developing later in the day, but it will be mostly dry.
Saturday we are watching for showers in the morning hours. Models mostly agree on drying conditions for the afternoon. With a noon start time for the Providence St. Patrick’s Day parade and 5k, the forecast is trending in a positive direction. However, some computer guidance hangs the rain back a little farther west and into the afternoon, so there is no guarantee for dry festivities just yet.
TONIGHT: Clearing sky and continued breezy, with winds dying down towards daybreak. Lows near 30.
THURSDAY: Sunny start, cloudy finish. Highs close to 50.
FRIDAY: Mainly overcast with a passing shower later in the day. Some briefly steady rain developing for the overnight. Highs in the low 50s.
WEEKEND: Rain lingers for Saturday morning, drying out into the afternoon. Highs near 50. Sunshine returns Sunday with a chilly wind. Highs in the 30s.
