Hang in there, our East coast friends. The season is surely Spring and you’re about to get a reminder of that. After a dreary, cool couple of days, frost all the way down to Tennessee and several inches of snowfall in New England, the weather will rapidly warm into the upcoming week.
Hopefully you can get out and enjoy the warmer temperatures coming this way because many people have to go back to work while temperatures are at their warmest, Monday and Tuesday. The cause? A large area of high pressure that is going to be setting up shop in the western Atlantic Ocean, while a developing low pressure moves into the Mississippi River Valley. Between both systems, the eastern third of the county will experience temperature jumps of about ten degrees each day. Temperatures will soar to 20 degrees above average and may have a shot at daily records.
It appears, more or less, that the western part of the country will experience cooler than average temperatures for much of the upcoming several days, while the eastern and midsection of the country experiences the warmer side of the temperature balance. This may continue into Easter weekend too. For folks in the Northeast, this may be welcomed news after a wintry end of Winter.
