Temperatures could reach record highs over Easter weekend


Temperatures will be in the middle 60s on Good Friday, but will warm back up into the Easter holiday weekend as high pressure moves into the Central Plains.

I expect the radar to show heavy rain over western New England on Saturday, but dry weather in the east. Temperatures are expected into the mid 50s. Otherwise, breaks of sun with winds decreasing through the afternoon. That muggy and warm feeling will continue. Once again, a wide range of temperatures are anticipated from northwest (45-50) to southeast (55-60). At night, partly cloudy, with a low around 62. Lows of 6 to 9 degrees. The warming trend will ramp up for the start of next week and mid 80's can be expected in the valley on Monday.

Today, heavy rain will be going on across NY, slowly moving east. Similar to Saturday, high temperatures Sunday will be in the mid 60s. "Temperatures rising day-on-day with some record-breaking temperatures by the time we get to Sunday and Monday". The overnight mist and fog will burn off and spells of hazy sunshine will develop, especially in the midland and east.

That rain will carry into Saturday morning, the most likely time of that day for more showers, and noticeable winds will continue as well.

Met Eireann says that latest indications suggest breezier generally on Monday especially on the west coast. Current projected rain totals are under a half an inch in our area, but thunderstorms could produce heavier amounts in some areas.

Make sure to hang on to your umbrellas for the next few days! Maxima still well above normal at 14 to 18 or 19 degrees, highest in eastern areas.
