And why is that abnormal? Here's what I just got from NWS for BDL climatological average for April 1: Max 54, Min 33

10 of next 14 days below normal.

Another arctic blast next week.

What happened to the above normal 60s ?

Only 4 days this month above 50 at Bridgeport. Still 7 days left but check out previous yrs.

Specifically before 2013. We used to have warm Marchs.

Continental Polar Airmass for our area. Let me guess...Tropical summer starts in 2 months.

TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...

The upper level pattern will exhibit the local area staying in
between the subtropical and polar branches of the upper level jet
throughout the long term period. The mid levels will exhibit split
mid level flow Tuesday night through Wednesday night and then this
will transition to zonal flow Thursday through Friday. The mid level
flow becomes more amplified with more SW flow for the weekend.

At the surface, a continental polar airmass with high pressure
settles into Northeast from Central Canada Tuesday night through
Wednesday.

Anecdotally, that data seems right. The last several years, not counting this past fall, it seems like the weather calendar has been pushed back 3-4 weeks. Winter lingers into April, it's very comfortable until July 4th, then it's hot as balls into October then pretty mild until Christmas.

Columbus Day weekend last fall was cold. I remember going for a morning walk Columbus Day weekend and it was near freezing; bundled up a sweater and jacket. Columbus Day '17 it was 85 and humid. Who knows with this stuff.

Bone dry blocking high over central CT? Dew point is in the teens (50 and dew point 11!). Raining pretty well once around Philadelphia and west.

Exactly. This is the normal drill. You can't count on good weather until May 1st. And even then.....you have to hope there isn't a ton of rain.

Yeah...my point is, if the average high is 54, you could argue that 5 days > 55 is actually pretty good! Agreed that we're talking averages and not median here...
