Today's weather is certainly much nicer than April 1st, 1997. I wasn't here for that #Epic event, I was actually heading out the door in Minnesota t play some golf when my mom called---in great disbelief. Looking back at some of that data it was a storm for the ages. much of southern New England picked up between 20-30" of heavy, wet snow. It was (and still is) Worcester's biggest storm...receiving 33" of snow. For Boston it stands as the 4th biggest snowstorm...25.4". 700,000 people were without power for days and winds gusted between 50-70mph. Such a fail.
Thankfully, nothing like that is in order the next few days as high pressure begins to nose into New England. That means a bunch of sunshine and winds that will fade later today. Those winds, combined with that chilly ocean will keep coastal areas cooler than inland locations. In fact, even tomorrow with barely any wind across the area, coastal areas will once again feel the wrath of the mighty cold Atlantic with afternoon sea breezes keeping temps in the upper 40s. Farther inland (west of I-95) afternoon temps both today & tomorrow will reach the 50s.
All in all, looking pretty good next few days---no fooling ya. ;o)
